Healing is very intuitive. Thinking about plants and the body in terms of "climate" (hot, cold, wet, dry), and connecting this with the "seasons" of the Earth, will provide an outstanding foundation for understanding herbs and their actions, as well as the natural rhythms and needs of our bodies. Even more fascinating, the taste of the herbs themselves will tell you so much about how to use them medicinally.
This class will provide a foundation for practicing traditional herbal medicine, and the "energetics" of herbs. We will learn about the 6 different tastes and connect them to corresponding actions on the body. Thinking in terms of tastes and herbal energetics will reveal the framework for the medicinal qualities and uses of countless plants.
Participants will experience the 6 tastes, learn about the benefits of herbal infusions and how to customize tea blends. We will then make a tea blend as a class for participants to take home, brew and enjoy!
