In our Plant Medicine Series we follow each plant on a journey to understand its roles in human health and to discover profound healing plant relationships. These classes introduce herbs using an in-depth bioregional experiential method that includes:
Botany and Ecology: methods for identifying the plants and finding them in their habitat
Materia Medica: detail on contemporary and historical medicinal uses
Organoleptic tastings: exploration of plant energetics and uses through direct experience
Medicine making: techniques for making effective medicines that honor the plants
Each month-long course takes place in an intimate classroom setting in Portland, OR.
