Mandrake, also known as the Mandragora or Manakin, is one of the most interesting and mysterious of the Witch’s Plants. Notoriously hard to get and grow, despite its popularity in modern stories and folklore, from Harry Potter and Pan’s Labyrinth. An herb of Venus and Saturn, as well as an aphrodisiac, sedative and poison, does it deserve its sinister reputation? In this class, hear the folklore associated with the plant, along with my own experiences growing it and working with it as a spiritual ally and teacher. Then experience the mandrake directly through the ritual use of mandrake flower essence and a guided visionary journey.
