Learn to Speak the Language of Plants
Did you ever wonder how your ancestors learnt about plants? Are you curious how our modern herbal library has been formed?
Learning herbalism can be overwhelming. There are so many plants, so many actions and so much to understand within the body! You may have found yourself wondering how you could ever memorize everything. Thankfully, understanding the wisdom of the plant world doesn’t have to be so complicated. Of course taking time to learn about plants in a scientific way is an essential part to the path of a herbalist, however it is also vital to learn the basic pattern, or language of nature, that is expressed through the plants you are studying. In this way, you are able to see patterns and understand the blueprint of Earth’s energetic makeup.
You can only learn so much about plants in books, to be a herbalist is to be in intimate relationship with nature.
While plants don’t use words, they are communicating all the time through their morphology, habitat, chemical composition and energetic characteristics. As we begin to attune our perception to their innate expression, corresponding relationships become clear and we begin to understand their intelligence in a whole new way.
This is an intensive introductory course designed for those seeking to deepen their connection to the plant world, hone their intuition and begin to learn to decode the language of nature by attuning their perception to Gaia’s intelligence.
“... if you wish, you can shift consciousness itself more directly by directly increasing the apertures of your sensory gates, by opening the doors of perception themselves more widely. You can do this a number of ways, hallucinogens are one of them, meditation is another, and habituation to constantly feeling the touch of the world upon you is another.”
-Stephen Harrod Buhner

How do I as an individual make a big impact on the planet and it’s long term health?
I’ve felt imposter syndrome when it comes to embracing herbalism and claiming my connection to the earth. How do I do this in a respectful way that feeds the web of life?
