Plant Medicine V: Mountains and High Deserts
We begin our Summer-Fall Plant Medicine series spending four weeks on the plants typically found in the mountain ranges such as Eastern Oregon’s Ochocos, Blue Mountains, Wallowas, and Steens; as well as high deserts and canyon-lands. We’ll discuss Ponderosa-Aspen parkland habitat and Juniper Sagebrush plateaus as well as more remote desert plants. Wild Peony, Oshala, Bitterroot, Aspen, Juniper, Sagebrush, Green Ephedra, Arnica, Lomatium, and many other plants will be discussed in depth with attention to identification, ecology, plant energetics, historical and modern uses, experiential plant communication, and how to work with these plants in a healing context.
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.
