SISTER SPINSTER

HERBS AND MAGIC ON THE CALIFORNIA NORTH COAST

TO THE ROOT: AN HERBAL APPRENTICESHIP 

2017 Registration is CLOSED

This introductory herbal program begins in the Spring Mendocino woodlands, along the coast of the mighty Pacific ocean. This a path for those who are interested in exploring the world of medicinal herbs, cultivating meaningful relationships with plants and healing ourselves and our communities. By honoring the nature of plants, the constant flux of living ecology, we inherently take part in self-transformation. 

This is a participatory and engaging program that will provide a foundation in herbal material medicine, botanical identification, medicine-making, anatomy & physiology, nutrition, magic and more. Healing is multi-dimensional and omni-directional, and we will explore ways in which the plants not only affect our physical bodies, but our emotions and spirits as well. While this is not a clinical herbalist training program (although there may be one to come in the future), this program will be a deep taproot from which participants may nourish many facets of their wellbeing. 

This class is taught by Liz Migliorelli and some special guest teachers.
