Cecemmana 2017: Our First Nine Month Training in Herbal Medicine

Starts February 4, 2017

Cecemmana is a Nahuatl word that means to sprinkle and plant seeds on the earth.  This program is dedicated to planting seeds in our diverse Bay Area communities for future herbalists.  This 400 hour training will provide students a solid foundation in the art, science & spirituality of herbal medicine from a multi-cultural perspective.

The focus of Cecemmana is to help students build a strong relationship with the plants; and to also support them to develop an intimate and healing relationship with their own bodies.   We will cover the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of herbalism and healing.  Class time will include lecture, class discussions, medicine making, herbal gardening, herb walks, field trips, and small group apprenticeship. Class projects include a long term study of one herbal ally, and researching and presenting a project for each student’s ancestral medicine.

Classes start on February 4, 2016 and end in early December with a six week summer break.  Class will be held on Mondays from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, the first Sunday of the month, as well as for two longer field trips in the summer.  Our core teachers are Atava Garcia Swiecicki, Elokin Orton -Cheung, Kara Sigler , and we’ll have many amazing guest teachers as well.

We are accepting both applications and deposits now; but the final date to get in your deposit is January 1, 2017.  For detailed information please , visit:  Cecemmana
