Course Overview

Plant medicine is one part plants and many parts people. Participants will learn how to integrate plant medicine ideas they’ve learned in previous herbalism courses, including: energetics, seasonality, food, and five sense therapy and apply those tools to help them think about and assist people to heal. Participants will workshop client case scenarios in small groups, as well as discuss with the whole class their ideas and recommended protocols, gaining confidence and discernment along the way. This is a dynamic class, full of good conversation and solid mentorship, that will support students to be more assertive and compassionate plant medicine practitioners, whether for a future professional practice or for their friends and families. 

This is a live online fully interactive course. Participant will be required to have camera turned on and come prepared to engage with the class.
