Grassroots EAST Intro to Herbalism 56hr.
With Daisy Marquis
April 12 - June 7, 2018
Holistic Herbal Education for Self-Healing
Grassroots is a comprehensive introduction to integrative herbalism and holistic living. Students will enjoy hours of spring sunshine at the beautiful Sacred Mountain Sanctuary in Candler NC, while learning the fundamentals of health, healing and self awareness. We will explore many forms of medicine making easily incorporated into the kitchen, as well as native plants of the woods and fields, flower essences, energy anatomy and an introduction to Ayurveda. We will also look into the systems of the body and the herbal remedies and lifestyle practices that support them, including the digestive, nervous, circulatory, urinary, generative and immune systems. Students leave the class with a plentiful basket of skills and herbal allies, and the confidence to safely incorporate them into daily practices for self healing and supporting the family. Due to the nature and location of the class, students need to be able to make a moderately vigorous walk through the woods (uneven terrain) during each class.
