Deepen relationship to yourself & the living earth through plant medicine.
Join Herbalist and Sacred Warrior Founder, Vanessa Chakour for a deep dive into the practice of Holistic Herbalism. Through these weekend intensives you’ll learn the principles of a Holistic Herbalism practice, learn to identify plants in the urban wild and make your own medicine. You’ll come away with an experiential foundation in Herbalism, and a renewed relationship with yourself and with the natural world. The May session is for absolute beginners to intermediate level herbalists. The September and November sessions are for returning students or those with a foundation in Herbalism.
Your guide for this course is 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.
