The Resiliency Institute Bioregional Herbalism Series meets
9:00 am -4:00 pm one Saturday a month March - November 2018.
Bioregional Herbalism is a pathway to natural wellness. Discover how to engage with bioregional plants as allies and develop personal intuition and connection. Learn the basics of body systems, herbal terminology, and common herbal preparations with a focus on nourishment, wellness, prevention and support.
During each Saturday class, discover 4-5 plants in depth, learn introductory health care topics and body systems, and prepare 1-2 different plant remedies. The day is divided among lecture and discussion, hands-on practice with harvesting and making remedies, walks to meet plants in their homes, and time to cultivate and reconnect with nature’s wisdom.
This course will empower you with nourishing herbal knowledge, the skills to experience the world in a new way, and the beginning of a personal herbal apothecary!
Class size is limited to 15 students
