Plant Medicine VII: The Nervines
Learn all about the nervines! These are some of the most important plants in modern herbalism because there is such great need to balance our nervous systems. In this course we will complete a systematic review of the Nervine plant medicines, from Skullcap, Blue Vervain, Wild Oat, Betony and Linden to Parrots Beak, Mimosa, Passionflower and Anemone… We will compare the relative energetics and properties of 30+ nervine herbs, with detailed training in how and when to use each one. Each plant will be discussed in detail with visual aids to help with botanical identification, cultivation, ethical wildcrafting, medicine making and therapeutic uses. Each plant will be recognized for its chemistry and its spirit, with an emphasis on forming healing relationships between people and plants.
In our Plant Medicine Series we follow each plant on a journey to understand its roles in human health. 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.
