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.
