Energetic and Esoteric Herbalism
Dates: January 20th – June 16th, 2015
Every Tuesday, 9:30-3:30 (Spring Break March 31st)
Instructor: Daisy Marquis
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, smell, and 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 healthy food choices and intimate relationship with special plants that imbue us at a cellular level with genuine wisdom.
We will enjoy 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: 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.
Appropriate for: Beginning herbalists will easily assimilate the vast amounts of wisdom imparted in this class. Experienced herbalists will take their knowledge to a higher level of understanding and open doors to a new profound awareness of plant medicine to heighten the potency of their herbal practice.
