"My approach to teaching herbal studies is not about the medicine, it’s not about finding a cure or becoming a great healer, instead it is about opening and developing a stronger connection to nature, to spirit, and to our highest self. To re-establish this ancient and vital path, we must recognize that the power of the plant kingdom lies not in its ability to alter consciousness or to heal, but rather in its silence and simplicity of being.” -Courtney L. Hall
immune boosting herbs for fall health
Sunday October 14th / 5pm-7:30pm
Please join certified herbalist Courtney L. Hall for a 2 ½ hour class to celebrate the changing of the seasons. She will show you how to properly make a decoction in the kitchen, meaning we will brew up a tea made of roots! We will spend time focusing on the properties of Valerian root, Echinacea root, and Dandelion root, and you will learn several natural remedies to deeply boost your immune system.. We will also set intentions for the winter ahead, and gently work with tarot as a tool of guidance and connection to self. Take home a handout, tea, and a card of your choosing.

intermediate herbal studies
**Thank you! This series is full! **
Open only to students who have completed the beginner 6-week series, or study of equal value, with instructors permission.
Yahoo! Time to get dirty! This hands-on 4-week series is an extension of the 6-week intensive. We will be outdoors for each class, planting, harvesting, digging, making medicine, and connecting deeply to the living spirits of the plant kingdom. As we will be working with and learning from several plants growing abundantly at Sang Lee Farms, each student will also choose one plant to connect with on a deeper, more personal level. We will focus greatly on plant-spirit communication, (sitting in meditation with several live plants), sustainable harvesting, and intuitive medicine making. Students will also take it a step further this series, learning how to identify and treat certain ailments in one another, even making medicine for the other. Here students will be paired up, and each week will spend some time healing one another from a clinical and intuitive position.
