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
Unless noted, Plant Medicine Series classes are designed for herbal medicine students of all levels.
Plant Medicine I: Trees
In this first class we look at the important trees of Cascadia, including conifers like Western Redcedar, Douglas Fir, Juniper and Pines, as well as essential deciduous tree medicines like Hawthorn, Oak, Cottonwood, Willows, Quaking Aspen, Red Alder, and more.
Thursdays, February 4, 11, 18, and 25, 6 - 9 pm
Plant Medicine II: The Kitchen Cabinet
In this class we focus on over 30 plant medicines that can commonly be found in the spice rack and pantry. Simply because these plants have become familiar to us in culinary use does not mean they aren’t powerful healing allies! From Ginger, Cinnamon, Turmeric and Clove to Oregano, Rosemary and Sage, we will cover dozens of the favorite remedies of the “kitchen witch.” For community healers, these are some of the plant medicines that can be purchased with food stamps. Medicine making techniques will be taught and demonstrated.
Thursdays, March 4, 11 and 18, 6 - 9 pm
Plant Medicine III: Local Herbs, Flowers, and Weeds
In this class we turn our attention to herbaceous plants, both native and naturalized (yes, Dandelion!). Important medicines like Stinging Nettles and Yarrow are taught alongside some lesser known plants of the lower elevations ares such as the riparian valleys, lower forests, Columbia Gorge and coasts.
Thursdays, April 8, 15, 22, and 29, 6 - 9 pm
Plant Medicine IV: Mountain Medicine
In our late spring class, we’ll cover some of the very important medicines of the middle and higher elevations of the Pacific Northwest. Many medicinal plants such as Oregon Grape, Devil’s Club and Red Root will be discussed in depth with regard to energetics, historical uses, experiential plant communication, and how to work with these mountain plants in medicinal healing context.
Thursdays, May 6, 13, 20 and 27, 6 - 9 pm
All classes are online over Zoom.
