Getting To Meet The Plants
Let me guide you on a walk in the woods in the beautiful Pacific Northwest. Where I will take you through my personal practice of wild harvesting medicinal plants.
We often think of medicine as something that has come from a lab, something sterile, something that is readily available for us to use when we need it. If your interested in herbalism or plant medicine, the education should start at the beginning- Getting to know the plant itself. You can learn so much about a plant just by spending time with it. In this modern day world we so often forget to connect to where something originates from.
This is an opportunity to journey into the forest, when everything is staring to bloom and get to know the very foundation of herbalism.
What this class will cover:
How to properly wildharvest in a mindful and ecological way.
How to use wild harvesting as a spiritual practice.
Understanding the medicinal properties of the plants we harvest.
