Occvlta online courses 2021-2022

We are very excited to introduce 13 new monographic and monthly courses on ethnobotany and plant folklore from an animistic and mystical perspective.

We’ve decided to keep them short and practical, collaborating with others when possible, and making them more affordable to users. They will revolve around animistic herbalism and metzineria, and will deal with hedgeriding, protection, necromancy, ancestor work, aphrodisiacs, and more. This means they are not last years’ courses, but will focus on a more a practical and experiential approach, so expect them to be hands-on work!
