I feel it is a sacred obligation and an honor to pass along my lifetime of accumulated knowledge to seekers of herbal wisdom. I have designed a few programs that cover various aspects of plant medicine that appeal to several different interests.
People frequently ignore their health problems or take suppressive drugs until serious illness becomes inevitable; maintaining balance before symptoms appear is the highest form of treatment. In these workshops, you will learn about the most common conditions and how to treat them using herbs, pressure points and aromatherapy, as well as some suggestions for maintaining optimum health.
Making your own medicine is one of the most important aspects of being a home herbalist; the ability to create effective medicine is a skill that everyone should learn. In these classes you will learn to create various medicinal preparations from topicals such as salves, balms, lotions, liniments, scrubs, salts, powders and clay masks to internal remedies like tinctures, pills, syrups, infusions, decoctions, teas, lozenges and more.
The Magick of Herbs
True magic happens when our ego steps out of the way to allow the consciousness of a plant ally to facilitate healing. Connected to all of nature and rooted in Mother Earth, plants have much to teach. Ancient herbal traditions have provided comfort, healing, introspection and well-earned nurturing to every culture for thousands of years. Sacred ceremonies are created with specific intention to detoxify, restore or harmonize, to treat illness or pain, and deepen intimacy or clear energy.
