Yogi's Apothecary: January 22 - February 26, 2020

Live calls: Wednesday evenings  5PM-6:30PM PST / 8PM-9:30PM ET



Have you ever wondered how to supplement your yogic journey with the plants?

For example, how to work with certain plants to strengthen your lungs for better pranayama experiences?

Or what plants can be used to prevent indigestion so you actually feel good to practice?

Or which plants can help you steady your mind so that meditation becomes easier, instead of a constant battle?

Did you know that there are even a plethora of plants (that probably grow somewhere in your area) that help reduce anxiety, fear and the inability to sleep?

This online program offers a solid beginner’s foundation for the budding spiritual herbalist. The Yogi’s Apothecary rests on the foundational premise that seekers and practitioners of modern day yoga (such as classical tantra yoga, kundalini yoga, hatha yoga and any yoga aimed at true spiritual advancement (not just looking awesome)) need strength in both body and mind in order to evolve spiritually.

Many yogis have insomnia, digestive issues and stress related illnesses that can be healed at home with proper guidance and knowledge. This program aims to empower through education. The people's medicine, the yogis medicine, should not be found in a doctor's office but brought into one's home and personal apothecary, straight from Nature. This approach is more sustainable, accessible, supportive and definitely more affordable than our current modern medicine paradigm.

The course objective of this 1st module of Tantric Herbalism is to go over the importance of optimizing + balancing the functions of the physical body-specifically certain organs and organ systems - as a foundation for one's spiritual advancement.

It is also an introduction into herbalism for those who want to be more empowered around their own health as well as inspired in the vast pharmacopeia of Nature. Our hope is to empower collective awakening from a sustainable inner/outer model and reveal the timeless alchemy of Herbal Wisdom.

We will be introducing a useful apothecary of plants, not overwhelming the student with too much information, but the appropriate amount that will offer a strong foundation for working more with plants. Brooke will go over the basics of herbal medicine such as herbal actions and energetics, preparing teas, tinctures, oxymels, and oils and we will have a forum to share concoctions, ideas and curiosities.

The Yogis Apothecary is a program designed by Brooke Sullivan, an Herbal Yogini of over 20 years, who has supported hundreds of people on their yogic journey, with the plants. It is designed to reveal very simple (and ancient) techniques in understanding how our minds and bodies can be supported with the correct application of herbal tonics and remedies.

Don’t worry, you won’t need to spend a lot of money on exotic herbs or have to be quizzed on Latin names in this course. But you may be inspired to get into your kitchen and the mysterious green outdoors.

These 6 weeks are to nourish you into understanding the affordability, creativity, accessibility and power that working with your local plants can bring.

In the Yogi's Apothecary you will learn how to make decoctions, tinctures, oils and teas, a number of plants for specific uses of body and mind, meditations for connecting to nature, and the inspiration to build your own personal apothecary- specifically for your spiritual journey, healing and awakening.
