Come join Songwriter, artist and herbalist Scott H. Massarsky as he brings you on a journey to discovering the power of the healing plants through song, performance, story telling and the sharing of his own herbal journey... Scott had been writing songs since he was 14, but it wasn't till years later one day when he sat with a White Pine tree that he had an experience which opened him up to a flow of creativity that he had never experienced before! Songs just started pouring out and the more time he spent with plants the more magical and creative life became. Scott will perform some of these songs as well as talk about the creative process and how plants can help guide us to a healthier and more creative life. There will be some guided visualization as well as a few sing-a-longs and some beautiful infusions to drink. This will be a fun, intimate and magical night - one part concert, one part class, and one part left open to what ever magic has in store for us!
