Deepen relationship to yourself & the living earth through plant medicine.
Sacred Warrior Herbalism School at Love Is Juniper in Brooklyn, NY offers hands-on learning with medicinal plants. You’ll grow your own herbs in our backyard garden, learn to wildcraft and create a homemade apothecary to last you through the seasons.
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. Come away with an experiential foundation in herbal medicine, a renewed relationship with yourself and with the natural world. Many of our classes will be outdoors in Prospect Park to work with medicinal plants in the urban wild. This course is for absolute beginners to intermediate level herbalists.
Herbalist, Sia Mensah has had a lifelong love affair with wild plants as food and medicine. She understands “rewilding” as the process of tapping into ancestral wisdom about living harmoniously with nature and sees herbalism as an essential part of that process. Throughout this course, she’ll teach you the underlying principles of plant medicine and guide you to awaken your intuition so that you can listen to, and learn from the language of nature.
In addition to growing and wildcrafting your own herbs, you’ll receive fresh herb bundles during classes from May-Nov. 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. Herbs will arrive on the day of class.
