Deepen relationship to yourself & the living earth through plant medicine.
Sacred Warrior Herbal 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. There will be opportunities for plant medicine hikes & field trips each season. This course is for absolute beginners to intermediate level herbalists.
The classes are led by Herbalist & Sacred Warrior Founder, Vanessa Chakour. Her approach to plant medicine engages intuition and reminds you how to listen to, and learn from the language of nature. We’ll share an herbal infusion (medicinal tea) each class and discuss the ways plants help us to heal through the mind, body and spirit.
