Sittings with Plants & Collective Moth Reading by Lotta Petronella
Lotta Petronella will perform a collective tarot reading using two hand-painted tarot decks: a collection of butterflies and a collection of moths native to two different Finnish islands. Oscillating between day and night, light and shadow, and life and death, the reading will move us all from a state of default carelessness to conscious care.
Lotta Petronella will also administer herbal essences made on-site with local plants, while her partner Sami Tallberg, a chef and forager, will invite us to taste Finnish mushrooms. The ritual will induce a sense of calm, semi-aware sleep, and porousness between ourselves and all the other earthlings around us. The collective reading will take place in this blissful state of adaptability and integration.
