Deepen relationship to yourself & the living earth through plant medicine.
Sacred Warrior is excited to offer an herbalism course in Brooklyn this Spring! We’ve partnered with Saw Mill Herb Farm in Western MA to provide fresh organic herbs for medicine making through the Spring, Summer & Fall. You’ll learn about the plants you receive and how to work with them through making tinctures, vinegars, oils, salves, teas & infusion. You’ll come away with a solid, experiential foundation in herbal medicine and a personal, homemade apothecary to last you for a long time. Many of our classes will be outdoors in Prospect Park to get to know, and work with many of the medicinal plants in NYC. There will be opportunities for plant medicine field trips each season. This course is for absolute beginners to intermediate level herbalists!
The classes are led by Sacred Warrior Founder, Vanessa Chakour and held in the beautiful, sun-filled classrooms at Electropositive and Prospect Park. Electropositive is equipped with a full kitchen to allow demonstration of herbal preparations. We’ll share an herbal infusion each class and discuss the ways plants help us to heal through the mind, body and spirit.
You’ll receive a box of 5 fresh herb bundles each class grown using sustainable, organic practices. Some are wild-harvested in the fields, forests, hills and valleys of Western MA. Seasonal selections include echinacea root, burdock root, nettles, mullein, red clover, tulsi holy basil, elderberry, cleavers, st. john’s wort and more. Herb pick ups at Electropositive will be on the day of class.
