Energetic and Esoteric herbalism is a thorough, hands-on exploration of the subtle power of plants to bring mental and emotional balance, to awaken the inherent wisdom of our organs and our souls, and to reveal to us our very purpose in incarnating.

Everything we eat, everything we smell, everything we touch affects our consciousness. We become that which we ingest as well as that with which we keep company and with which we identify.

Learn to modulate your consciousness through right food choices and through intimate relationship with special plants that imbue us at a cellular level with genuine wisdom.

In this class we will spend time making medicines of every kind, developing understanding of the balance of the elements and the organs, journeying with plant spirits and elementals, and learning to listen to and trust the voice of the plants that has always been there whispering to you, quietly calling you to your own heart…

What You Will Learn:

The course will include an introduction to flower essences, extensive human energy anatomy, simple and subtle medicine making, education related to organ systems and herbal energetics, and lots and lots of nature time. (We will spend a minimum of half our time together in sacred nature sites.)

We will go on to complete the organ system study, delve into Ayurveda and aromatherapy, MORE simple and subtle medicine making, and conclude with special student projects. Homework will be light- most all the learning done here is experiential.

Flower Essence Certification
Feb 22 @ 9:30 am – 5:30 pm

Flower Essence Certification

Course Length: 10 months, meets one Sunday a month for 10 months (9:30-5:30)

Imagine spending nearly a year cultivating a very intimate relationship with the plants, in a way that deeply serves the people in your life and empowers your healing practice. Whether you are a clinical herbalist, an energy healer, a body worker, a parent, an animal lover, or just a person navigating your own journey with healing, this certification course will give you tools you will turn to for the rest of your life. Flower essences are safe and subtle plant remedies that heal at the deepest level- the causal level of disease. Flower essences are also very effective tools for becoming awakened, conscious humans. Furthermore, flower essences could easily be called the most sustainable form of herbal medicine. The perfect medicine for our times!
In this program, students will become well versed in flower essence therapy, making dozens of flower essences themselves, to kick start their home or office apothecary. We will also cultivate professional, clinical skills such as inner listening, communication, ethics and healthy boundaries. Most importantly, we will spend many of our hours together in the classroom of nature, learning to trust our ability to communicate with the plants, to understand the immense complexity of their medicines, and to become humble students of these most potent and abiding teachers.
Students will also have some take home work in association with class, including flower essence consultations with friends and family, to be turned into the instructor.
