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.
Dates: Thursdays August 4, 11, 18, and 25.
Time: 6 - 9 pm PST
Location: Online via Zoom. Links to meetings will be emailed before each class.

Important: When you purchase the class you will be emailed a link to download a PDF file containing details about the class locations and other necessary instructions. This link will be active for 30 days. If the link expires you may email us for a new link. However, as we prefer to spend our time in the woods rather than on the computer, we recommend downloading the file immediately.
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.
Refund policy: Full refund for tuition (minus $15 admin fee) can be made up to 1 week before start of class. Less than 7 days before start of class, 50% of tuition can be refunded. No refunds are possible for cancellations made less than 24 hours before the start of the class or after the class has begun.
