The intention for this hands-on intensive is to support and empower folks who want to be their own herbalist >>
:: To build a foundation of knowledge & intuition in order to treat themselves and loved ones for common health problems using herbs effectively and confidently.
:: To create reciprocal relationships with plants based in love and respect, with an eye for sustainability.
In this course we will cover >>
:: Different types of herbal preparations and how to make tinctures, infused vinegar and oxymels, teas, water infusions and decoctions, and how to choose which type of preparation to make.
:: How to construct a formula or why you might use simples instead.
:: Dosing confidently / Feeling the body's needs and responses in acute and long-term conditions
:: Creating reciprocal, respectful relationships with plant allies. This is very important in order for real healing to be possible, and to honor our place in the web of life.
All participants will get to make and take home a variety of herbal preparations.

COST :: $70 per person, including all materials cost. When you register, you will receive a confirmation email with payment instructions for electronic payment or where to send a check. Your registration is finalized with payment.
Two Notes on Cost:
- This is the first year for this class, so I am offering it at a lower rate than I intend to in the coming years.
- Up to two lower-fee seats are available! If this is something you really want to do, but cannot pay the full $70, reach out to me (firstname.lastname@example.org), let me know, and hopefully we can get you registered. I'd rather you be there than not!
Aaand, because I try to put my money where my mouth is, I will donate a portion of the proceeds from this intensive to a non-profit that works with Earth stewardship and/or indigenous peoples' initiatives to protect and reclaim their land and lives.
