Community Herbalism

In these courses, the goal is to empower students in Bio-Regional Herbalism: to identify, grow, harvest, process and become proficient in the plant-based medicine and edibles from the many life zones of the American Southwest. A special emphasis is on the flora within a 50 mile radius of one’s home. The instruction is a combination of indoor classes and outdoors, hands-on interaction with the plants.

Ayurveda
This portion of the program presents the framework of Energetic Herbalism with an emphasis on the Ayurvedic view. Students acquire a working knowledge of the foundation principles of these healing traditions. The themes of the Five Elements, Three Doshas, Cooling-Warming, Moistening-Drying and the relevance of the Six Tastes are integrated throughout the program.

Ayurveda and Energetic Herbalism provide us with guidelines for choosing the proper herbs and diet to match our specific needs.

Essential Oils
This curriculum takes us from the plants’ production of oils in the forest and fields, through the distillation process, to the bottle. Next, we learn a variety of application methods and therapeutic uses based on both scientific research and tradition. As always, there is frequent interaction with plants and oils; some familiar and some surprises.
