Agnieszka Forfa is a trauma therapist, disability justice advocate, artist, plant flirt, land and body-based scholar and queer femme living as a settler on Mississaugas of New Credit, Haudenosaunee and Huron-Wendat land. Her teachings come from Western herbalism, Slavic ancestral knowledge as well as spiritual healers from Rootwork and Dagara traditions. She acknowledges that while ritual plant bathing has its roots in multiple cultural and spiritual traditions, some of her teachings are from lineages that are not her own. In turn, all proceeds from the sessions will be donated to BIPOC-led healing justice initiatives.
WHAT IS A RITUAL PLANT BATH APPOINTMENT, YOU ASK:
// spring-cleaning for the emotional, energetic and spiritual body //
Ritual plant baths are an excellent self-care practice. Especially if you are feeling run down, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, or in stress, they are a simple and effective way to clear energies, emotions, thought forms and spiritual stimuli. Spiritual plant bathing has been utilized for thousands of years in many different cultural practices, with the understanding that the energy of water allows us to let go of what does not serve us; and the more that we come into line with water energy the more we can feel nourished and connected. When we clear old emotions and energies, we can bring forward new momentum in our lives, lessen fatigue and feel more vital energy. Water is itself a powerful carrier of intent; the added element of flowers, plants, minerals and herbs, which possess a spirit of their own, increase the power and capabilities of a bath. After your session with Agnieszka you will walk away with a personalized prescription and directions for a ritual plant bath catered specifically to your needs, based on our conversation and Agnieszka’s intuitive guidance. (FYI: no bath tub necessary)
