Health From the Ground Up

EagleSong Gardener

Herbalist/Gardener

Saturday, September 19th

We went to sleep...and woke up in a different world...or did we?

 

While Covid-19 has changed the way we move in the world...we can continue developing resilience and flexibility, in our hearts, minds and souls. In fact, these two quaities are crucial for supporting our lives moving forward as whole human beings. 

How do we embody herbs as people's medicine?

When we see plants as themselves and not as we wish them to be, we are at the beginning. 

Join EagleSong Gardener to learn how to bring herbs to life, to your life each and every day. Why wait until you are sick or have a problem to enjoy herbs when you can have an on-going relationship with plants that enriches, enlivens and may even lengthen your life and the lives of those you love? And, when things take a sideways turn, as they do, you'll have allies & practices on which to call wherever you are.

You will learn to engage life force energy using your body, your emotions, your spirit and even your beautiful mind...from and with plants!

Not only will you meet simple herbs and learn how to use them simply, you will begin or continue a life long journey with your closest allies...the elements, the plants, the earth and the heavens. 

You will leave with:

  • A solid repertoire of 9 plant allies and know how and when to use them at least 100 ways! Elder, Comfrey, Linden, Echinacea, Oatstraw, Nettle, Hawthorn, Motherwort & St. Joanswort

  • A framework for making simple herbal preparations with household ingredients that is easy to remember and has stood the test of time...

  • Your inner guide and the skills and confidence to trust her and deepen your understanding with her

  • A natural way to discern how plants work in your body so you can choose herbs to meet your life fully

Please Note:

Robin's Course is cancelled due to Covid 19. We look forward to having her join PWHC at a later time.
