I absolutely LOVE to teach others about the amazing, health-giving, magical plant world!
I feel it is incredibly important to pass on the knowledge of how to heal ourselves with the plants that grow right outside our doors. Many of our common health concerns can be taken care of with common plants and it is empowering to take part in our own healing. As we gather and make medicine with the plants we also create a bond with the natural world which is deeply balancing and healing as well.
Make your own medicine from the Earth….
and you will feel healthier and more vibrant. You feel more grounded and connected to the land you live on. You will feel more attuned to the natural surroundings which you are a part of. You will feel empowered.
In my adult herb classes I like to teach about the plant world from different perspectives…
We learn how our bodies systems work and how the plants can affect these different systems
We explore the history of herbs and how plants have been used traditionally by different herbalists
We investigate the scientific research that has been done on the pertinent herbs
We may explore the herbal topic from the perspective of the Chinese 5 element theory
We spend time outside learning directly from the plants — exploring, harvesting, meditating, drawing the plants
We make medicines with the plants
And more depending on the topic of the class.
