The Path of Herbalism
Mar 22, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm| $35
Learn the language that plants and our bodies have in common through traditional Eastern approaches to herbalism and personal development.
Master herbalist William Siff leads participants on a journey into the heart of herbalism as a developmental path. In his presentations, William Siff explains the five elements of traditional Ayurveda teachings — earth, water, fire, air, ether — and other core concepts of the traditional Eastern medical systems. Participants will come away with a deeper appreciation of herbalism as the art of connecting plants and people by developing our capacity to feel plants express their vital energies in our bodies.
Botanical medicine is a qualitative art. It is the practice of harmonizing the five elements we experience and observe in the outside world and those same elements within our bodies. The primary tools needed for discovering the healing power of herbs are your own senses. Explore the specific ways you can incorporate herbal medicine into your home and garden as the basis of a grassroots approach to health and wellness. And learn how to tune-in to the subtle frequencies of plants.
