About The Event

The idea that our minds and bodies are intimately connected is not new to most of us, though it does run counter to the deeply held beliefs of our modern culture - scientific rationalism, the mechanical nature of the body, technological superiority, allopathic medicine. Science has finally begun acknowledging that “stress” profoundly affects our health, well-being, and longevity, with hundreds of studies emerging to illuminate the undeniable connection between mind and body.

Luckily, plants and plant medicine offer amazing support to our nervous systems, our feelings and emotional selves, and to our hearts and minds. They are allies in authenticity and developing strength from the roots up. Herbs don’t suppress emotional symptoms, they help us remember how to feel differently and help us move through mental and emotional states to facilitate integration, growing stronger and wiser through the process.

The focus of this class will be the myriad ways we can reach out to herbs for solace and inspiration, and we will be framing herbal medicine from the context of trauma-informed care, inclusivity and accessibility. Plants don’t discriminate, they give freely of their medicine to all, and they have much to share with us about finding power where we are and in who we are.

Topics covered:

  • The innate intelligence of our nervous systems and emotional selves - what it means to be sane in an insane world
  • How to use herbs to not get stuck in cycles of anxiety, depression, grief, worry, fear, or despair
  • Some of the best forms of plant medicine for the emotions, heart, and soul, and how to make and use them
  • Flower essences, fumigations and aromatherapy, infused body oils, elixirs and cordials, teas and baths
  • Native, abundant and accessible plants and trees who offer profound emotional support
  • Building relationship with plants as a gateway to deep healing and transformation
