About the event
I will be teaching the following classes as this event:
Herbs on Fire! Burning Plants with Purpose for Medicine, Pleasure and Ceremony.
Just as we put herbs into water to make tea or into alcohol to make tinctures, fire and heat can also be used to extract medicinal properties. The combination of fire and herbs have been used throughout human history all across the globe. In the class, we will learn about the common plants brought to fire, put them into historical/culture context and explore the variety of ways these plants can be brought to heat and flame. We will also discuss herbal smoking blends and how they can play a role to support someone in the process of quitting cigarettes/tobacco. We will cover Mugwort, Mullein, Sage and Sumac and many others in this interactive class!
Herbal Actions: Understanding Plant Medicine Through Medicinal Properties and Qualities.
All plants have multiple actions, or qualities. Understanding these categories strengthen our ability to choose the best plants and combinations for ourselves and those we share them with. Think of herbal actions as how a particular plant acts upon/changes/modulates our physiology. It is easy to learn, and you may have heard some of the common ones before such as: Anti-Inflammatory, Diuretic and Laxative. We will delve into these vast categories and the plants that cross over into them to gain a better understanding of how to choose the best combinations of plants to make the most effective plant medicine for yourself and others. Suitable for all levels.
