Foundations in Herbal Medicine
This is exactly the herb course I wish I had been able to take when I first started. There seemed to be so many options, especially online, for learning about the body and how herbs can help. I was overwhelmed and didn't know where to start. I created this course to be the kind of class I wanted but couldn't find.
Grounded in science and spirit
We will be focusing on plant energetics. This is the language that plants speak to us, teaching us what they do and how they help. Once you learn the language the plants speak, this opens up the world of plant medicines in a way you never imagined!
This is a small group class. There is plenty of time for questions and personalized learning. Time to integrate the plant medicine each month as we go along.
This 4 month program will help you deepen your experience with plant based medicines. This program is designed for folks that want to bring more plant medicine into their lives. You will gain a thorough understanding of the systems of the body and some of the ways that herbs can help support vital functioning. The mysterious world of chemistry and energetics of plant medicine will be opened up to you. Each month we will gather for three hours of herb talk. You can expect to spend time sharing what you have learned.
We will cover:
History of herbal medicine
Connecting to plant medicine
Finding the healer within
Energetics of plants
Taste of Herbs
Actions of plants
Tissue states of the body
Herbal actions and the body

What past participants have said
Having enjoyed herbal foundations so much, I’ve already signed up for level 2 next year. I’ve found a deeper connection to the plants and the medicine they offer to support and nourish us. I’ve also appreciated the simplicity and beauty of herbal medicine and how it can easily be incorporated into our lives. Melanie’s love and respect for the natural world and herbal medicine shines through her teaching. She’s helped us create a community and I appreciate the inspiring people I’ve met through this shared interest.
Taking this course has been amazing. I started out expecting to learn a lot about plants, which I have. But I've also learned about myself, the human body, and gotten more of a sense of what health looks like in different body systems, which is information I didn't even realize I wasn't getting, and it's nice to be more able to recognize a little imbalance somewhere, before it gets to be a real problem. I loved going to each class, for the community; spending time with lovely, like minded people, the therapy; we spent some time checking in, sharing what was happening in our lives, and did some meditation, and of course learning about exciting and interesting things each time.
I highly recommend it!
