What you'll learn in this natural medicine class:

Self-care for Self-sufficiency: Plant Medicine in the Kitchen

Many people view the striking numerical pattern of 11/11 - repetitive, palindromic, symmetrical, visually indicative of upright columns or doorways - as a cue to tune in to the harmony inherent with their aspirations, loved ones, and all of humanity, as a cue to spread love and beauty with the world around them. As harmonies are sonic vibrations ordered in a pleasing formation, we can imagine ourselves in an equally pleasant arrangement with those aspirations and people who we hold in our attention and intention.

This class focusing on self-sufficiency is an effort to provide an answer for low-cost and effective means of self-healing before illnesses become acute. A return to the knowledge of plant medicine can assist us in gaining power back from the current healthcare system. This class will teach attendees to prepare remedies at home using basic kitchen tools and common kitchen ingredients. These herbal preparations are time-tested, safe, potent, and often rich and delicious.

In this three-hour class, we will:

  • Prepare three remedies together
  • Embark on a guided meditation with one plant, using the numerological principle of 11/11 to help us align us more easily with our goals, aspirations, and loving community
  • Share healing stories of the herbs we discuss

You will take home:

  • Three preparations, each an infusion in honey, apple cider vinegar, and olive oil
  • Guidelines on using the preparations
  • Handouts on the herbs we use, the various "solvents" you can use (eg, honey, vinegar, oil, alcohol, etc) and how they are useful, and some recipes
  • Greater confidence in using spices and herbs for personal treatment

This year, November 11th is Veteran's Day. If you are a veteran, we are extending a special discount for this course. Please call [email protected] directly to receive your registration discount code.

 

Attendees will leave with greater confidence in researching and creating plant-based remedies. Participants are greatly encouraged to share their own family’s traditional remedies and wisdom. Come prepared to get your hands dirty... and take notes! Herbs, jars, and handouts with recipes and resources will be provided. Attendees can expect to take home their own handmade remedies.
