Basic Herbalism: Learning your plant allies and basic medicine making skills
I am so thrilled to be bringing this class to you. I must admit that when this class was in its dream stage, it included MUCH more than I am making available with this basic skills class. I had to whittle it down so that it would be manageable for you if you are a budding herbalist, yet interesting if you have an existing relationship with your plant allies.
Many of my online courses are considered intensives; they can last anywhere from 5 weeks to 6 months or more. I would like to create a different framework for these classes. I am not affiliated with, nor do I wish to begin an herbal school at this time. I want to share my personal experiences and offer you a good foundation for developing your own relationship with plant and tree allies.
We will begin with you. Who are you? What’s your constitution? Your energetics? Your temperaments? Your habits? How do you fuel yourself and how do you recharge your batteries?
Next we will explore a variety of plants and their energetics. We will taste and work with a few specific plants and discuss how people with different constitutions need different types of herbs.
Then we will learn a variety of medicine making options, including teas, tinctures, infused oils, salves, shrubs and more.
Finally we will put it all together and create a nourishing protocol for ourselves, based on what we have learned. If you work with me in person, you will leave my apothecary with a nourishing tea blend, a tincture/elixir, a salve or infused oil blend, etc., based on your personal constitution and energetic makeup. If you are an online participant, you will learn how to create your own blends based on our time together.
Online and In Person pricing:
The online class cost is $47. You will have access to me for the duration of the class to ask any questions or get feedback on your progress. Each section of class has an activity at the end of it, and you will be expected to email your experiences to me if you want feedback. At the end of the class, you will receive a PDF of the class so that you can revisit it later. The length of the online class is 4 weeks.
The 6-hour workshop is $95, and all of your herbal goodies that you’ll take home with you are included in the price. Lunch is not included (we will break for lunch for an hour). You may schedule your workshop with me at any time. You are welcome to team up with a friend and schedule your workshop together. Since this workshop is personalized for you, I will only see three people per workshop so that you can each receive individual support.
If you would like to work with me in person and online, registration is $120.00 and includes all of the above.
Payment plans are available if needed. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook to schedule your personal workshop. Online class begins in March!
I look forward to spending time with you!
