One Year Herbal Apprenticeship: September 2015 - June 2016
A wonderful gathering together and commitment to deepening our connection with the plants.
Together we will explore:
* making tinctures, oils, salves, infusions, decoctions and flower essences
* tastes of the plants and actions they impart in the body
* systems of the body and how to strengthen them with plant medicine
* herbal formulation and plant identification
* spiritual relationship with the plants through journeying and dreaming
Our apprenticeship will hold the container for our discoveries.
Classes are held during the week, one day per month for ten months, from September 2015 through June 2016.
The location is in a beautiful barn in Portland, Maine accessible by the #3 and #6 bus lines, walking distance to the Presumpscot River.
The maximum number of students is 12. Babes in arms are welcome!
The cost of the full apprenticeship is $900. A $200 deposit holds your place.
If paid in full by August 10, the cost for the year is $800. Payment plans are available.
