Shamanic Herbalism Correspondence Course
“To become a true herbalist means to be sensitive to the being of the herbs, to commune in sensory awareness with the plant light of the universe. It is to learn to listen when the plant speaks, to speak to the plant as to another human being, and to look upon it as one’s teacher”.
~Dr. David Frawley and Dr. Vasant Lad’s “The Yoga of Herbs”
Gaia’s Green Magic
In Ayurvedic Medicine, herbs are approached through the art and science of herbal energetics. Ayurveda and the ancient Essene Way of Life are the oldest developed shamanic practices worldwide. The properties of medicinal plants are related systematically according to their elements and tastes. However, without a developed sense of energetics, we cannot tap into the plant’s spirit, which holds a pure understanding of plant medicine. Knowing the energetic language of plants is a unique system for realizing their hidden potential. It is a profoundly satisfying process which opens one’s heart to the ancient language and mysteries of the plant kingdom. Herbal energetics is the main factor in understanding herbs in the world’s Ayurvedic and ancient shamanic traditions.
Energetic herbalism is knowledge that belongs to all living beings. Adapting this healing approach to meet the individual’s unique needs, constitution, and environment is a gift of the plants.
We will explore the energetic medicine of plants in an inspiring and practical format. The course’s Apprenticeship part will include herb & medicine walks, connecting with plants’ healing essence, discovering your totem plants, and knowing a plant’s medicine through the five senses. You can expect a hands-on, participatory and enlightening experience.
You are embarking on one of the great adventures of the human mind throughout the ages. May this healing and learning journey take you to the source of all nourishment and the origins of life within your own heart. May you be inspired to follow it wholeheartedly, beneficially, and creatively. May it guide you through life and help you be of healing service to all life.
