"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

The Healing Power of Flowers

Sunday July 1st 10am-1pm

At Sang Lee Farms   $95 (Includes materials fee)

Join Certified Herbalist and Flower Essence Practitioner Courtney L. Hall as she guides you in the delicate art flower essence making. As she walks you through the farm to observe and gather flowering plants, she will discuss the amazing potency and gentleness of this medicine, as well as how they can affect and guide you. Together we will then create our very own living flower elixir! (Flower essences are the safest form of plant medicine available today, and as subtle and kind as they are to our bodies, they are remarkably effective, uniquely addressing the emotional and mental aspects of well-being.) Sun protection and an open heart required!

Take home a new way to self-heal, a handout, and a bottle of the essence we crafted in class!

Intermediate 4-week program: sang lee series of herbal studies

**Open only to students who have completed the beginner 6-week series**

Yahoo! Time to get dirty! This hands-on 4-week series is an extenstion 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.  Here students will be paired up, and each week will spend some time healing one another from a clinical and intuitive position.
