Medicine Plants & The Healing Process | Deepening our Knowledge and Connection to the Plant World

With Deb Soule and Jillian Kelsey-Rose

A woman's intermediate herbal course set in the beautiful three-acre biodynamic medicinal herb gardens of Avena Botanicals on the midcoast of Maine. This three weekend class is aimed for women with a basic understanding of medicinal herbs and aims to expand and ground your knowledge and confidence in working with them. As a running theme, we will explore the meaning behind healing and medicine, along with its many forms. We will work deeply with the elements and constitutions, the body systems and organs, the five flavors, clinical actions and indications of plants and how to apply this knowledge by looking together at case studies.

Our teaching includes a strong emphasis on working with plant spirits, the energetics of medicinal plants and meditation. We will discuss the differences in usage of fresh plant tinctures, glycerites, oils, salves, poultices, capsules, foot baths and facial steams for various conditions. Our aim is to provide direct, experiential teaching in the garden and to inspire and deepen womens connection with the plants and our own inner wisdom.
