The Energetics of Herbs: Constitutional and Holistic Herbalism

What are the energetics of herbs? In this class we will discuss the ways people have sought to answer that question, as we experience the herbs as beings that take part in the complete energetic dynamics of the natural world. We will give time to Ancient Greek, Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine models of energetics, the natures and flavors of herbs, as well as intersections with Plant Spirit communication. 


We will look at the herbs in more subtle ways beyond their herbal actions and symptom pictures. Ultimately, we will investigate how the energetics of herbs act as a foundation for some of the holistic and vitalist concepts involved with matching people to the plant medicines that are right for them as unique individuals. We will look at how herbal energetics connects to formula construction and to constitutional medicine.

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 refunds can be given (minus $15 admin fee) for cancellations more than 1 week prior to the class. 50% refund can be made for cancellations made less than 1 week before the class. No refunds are possible for cancellations made less than 24 hours before the start of the class or once it has begun.
