2020 ::: PLANT as PORTAL ::: An Herbal Apprenticeship

::: PLANT as PORTAL ::: Herbal Apprenticeship

Back again!

I’m so excited to announce that I will be teaching a 7 month Herbal Apprenticeship from April to October, 2020. This year, I have decided to hold two apprenticeships - one on Monday night and one on Tuesday night; I have also added a camping trip to the syllabus!

This is a path for those who wish to cultivate a deep relationship with the ancient use of plants for healing, ritual and transformation. Form a real connection to the healers growing alongside us in our forests and own backyards. Through lecture and hands-on experience students will learn about the inner workings of our body’s systems and how plants have a direct impact. We will start each class with a 2 hour lecture and end with a lecture-related herbal medicine making workshop. Students will take home herbs and herbal remedies each week.

There will be many herb walks (and a CAMPING TRIP) to ID and learn about traditional uses of local plants, we will spend time in local gardens within Bloomington, as well as, swim, sweat, laugh, dream, and cry together.


Expect to learn:

  • Herbal Actions

  • Plant communication, folklore, alter building, dreaming with plants

  • Making herbal formulas, tinctures, decoctions, syrups, herbal smoke medicine, ointments, poultices, flower essences, etc.

  • Basic Nutrition

  • Local Plant ID

  • Healing body systems - digestive, nervous, immune, skin, endocrine, urinary, respiratory, etc.

  • Personalized Herbal First Aid Kits

  • Connection to ancestry

Total cost ::: $900 - Payment plans are available - 4 payments of $225 ((Non-Refundable))
