In a moment of great transformation, we can turn to the botanical world for inspiration, healing, grounding and resilience.
Join us for an immersion into the world of healing with medicinal plants. This class will focus on building our relationship with our herbal allies and learning practical medicine making skills.
Each class will cover in-depth one or more herbal medicines and we will learn how they work both physically and energetically. We will learn recipes and other ways to incorporate the plants into our lives.
Please note that while we won’t be offering specific herbal protocols around preventing or curing COVID-19, a novel virus that healthcare professionals and herbalists are learning about rapidly, we will discuss topics of particular relevance to these times including immunity, emotional wellbeing and stress, sleep support, digestive support, grounding and resilience.
This class will be taught online and may enroll up to 50 participants. Students will often be broken up into groups for smaller group discussions. Medicine making will be modeled by the teacher; students will be encouraged to practice at home with commonly available herbs and kitchen equipment. Students will receive accessible prompts about how to engage with plants wherever they are based.
This class is open to all people.
