Plant Medicine I: Trees



In our Plant Medicine Series we follow each plant on a journey to understand its roles in human health and 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, including herbal energetics
  • Medicine making: techniques for making effective medicines that honor the plants 


In this first 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.
