Sundays - March 10-April 14th- 6 weeks
5:15-7:15 pm @ Rooted Remedies Apothecary- Eugene, Oregon
In this one of a kind herbal plant immersion series - inspired by my time working with traditional plants in the Amazon, along with many years of Herbalism, Ayurveda, and Plant Spirit Medicine - the focus will be on deepening our connection to the plants, exploring, and creating our own personal relationships.
In this series, we will focus on some of my favorite Medicinal Plants, working with 5 different plants one per week over a 6 week period. The format for the information I will be sharing with you comes from classic sources ranging from Traditional uses, Western herbalism, Ayurveda, Traditional Chinese medicine, Mythology, Plant Identification, Wildcrafting/Foraging (ethics and sustainability), and Medicine-making tips.
During our first class together, we will set our personal and group intentions. Have a discussion about what we will touch on and explore, learn about some different ways of making herbal medicines, then finish with our first plant meditation. During these meditations we are being introduced to the plant we will work with for that week.
The following weeks will begin with a sharing circle so everyone can speak about their own experiences before we dive into the more formal information on the plant featured that week. We will end each week with a plant meditation introducing the next plant.
During our time together, I encourage you all to experiment with different ways of connecting with these plants. Throughout each week try to make your own medicines, drink tea, create an altar, get crafty, meditate with them everyday, and find a way that best resonates with you. The thing I love most about doing this in a group setting is that we all have our individual experiences and through those, we all learn so much about the plants and ourselves, then by sharing with each other we all get different perspectives enriching our learning process.
You will walk away from this immersion with a close intimate relationship with 5 different Medicinal Plants. With this knowledge you will feel more confident in calling on these plants in time of need. Be it physical, emotional, or spiritual you will have some tools in your new herbal apothecary to help yourself, loved ones, and others. You will also be part of an herbal community to continue to connect with, along with the opportunity to attend our bi-monthly plant meditations where we will continue exploring the nuances of the plant world.
