The Three Sisters are corn, beans, and squash. For thousands of years indigenous people of North America have perfected the science of planting them together as a huge advancement in agriculture. All throughout the Americas, wherever it is warm enough, Native peoples create mounds where they first plant corn. Then, once the corn is about half a foot tall, they plant beans and squash around the corn.
In my tradition of Mexican Curanderismo, maize, or corn, is the most sacred plant there is, and it is incorporated into almost every single traditional food we eat. Culturally, we have always used the 3 sister method, planting mounds with maize in the center, and surrounded by frijoles (beans) and calabaza (squash). We call these mounds milpas.
In this workshop you will learn some of the mythology around the origin of the Three Sisters, how they can be used for magical and spiritual purposes (particularly to bring prosperity and abundance), take part in a ceremony to bring abundance into your life, and learn a traditional recipe you can prepare that provides spiritual energy of prosperity and abundance whenever it is eaten.
