Learn all about the nervines! These are some of the most important plants in modern herbalism because there is such great need to help heal our nervous systems. In this course we will cover 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.

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.
