Plant Medicine IV ONLINE: Mountain Medicine

Plant Medicine IV ONLINE: Mountain Medicine


In our Plant Medicine Series we study herbs using an in-depth method that includes plant appearance and identification, ecology, traditional and historical medicinal uses and modern understandings. We explore the energetics of each plant one at a time. We follow each plant on a journey to a complete understanding of its roles in human health, and discover possibilities of healing plant relationships. Medicine making techniques will be discussed and demonstrated.


In our May series, 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.
