In our Plant Medicine classes we follow each plant on a journey to understand its place in the world and the way it interacts with the human body and mind. Instruction is focused on growing healthy and beneficial relationships as we work to make effective medicines that honor the plants while helping people.
Each course focuses on a different group of 15-30 plant medicines, covering:
- Botanical identification
- Ecological roles in their native habitat
- Detailed materia medica
- Herbal energetics
- Medicine making techniques

In this class we look at the important trees of Cascadia, including majestic conifers like Western Redcedar, Douglas Fir, Juniper and Pines, as well as essential deciduous trees like Hawthorn, Oak, Cottonwood, Willows, Quaking Aspen, Red Alder, and more. All trees will be discussed for their appearance and identification, ecological role, medicinal uses and cultural significance, as well as their incredible wisdom, beauty and ability to inspire the human spirit towards healing.

In our third class we’ll cover some of the very important medicines of the middle and higher elevations of the Pacific Northwest.

Location: ONLINE via ZOOM. The meeting code will be emailed to you before the beginning of each class.
Media policy: Live Online classes are… live! Active participation is expected and part of what makes live classes special. We are engaging with one another and there are discussions, Q&As, maybe even some singing. You can turn your camera and mic off during lectures, but there will be some times where you will be expected to be present with classmates with camera on.
Live Online classes may be recorded. Recording is generally done of the presenter and slides, and it is turned off for check-ins, breakout room discussions, and other student participation. However, by registering for the class you agree that your image and voice may be incidentally recorded, and you give permission for class recordings to be used by the school in the future. Typically only the audio portion of the recording is used afterwards, occasionally needing to be shared with classmates who miss a session.
