Space is limited as the Medicines are hand crafted & many are grown by me🌱

Exploratory Herbal Mentorship is an online offering that works with traditional ways of learning about Herbal Medicine - through working with the Plants directly. Connecting with the Plants, forming relationship, and learning through shared wisdom & knowledge in {virtual} Circle.

During the 3.5 months of working together, you will work with 5 different plant medicines (and 1 BONUS Plant Medicine for integration), each in a unique form - tincture, flower essence, oil, tea, etc. You will spend a half moon cycle, or two weeks, with each Medicine. Cultivating a deeper relationship and understanding of the Plant's Spirit and Physical Medicine properties.

During each half Moon phase, you will be guided to work with the Medicines through ritual, shared recipes, plant spirit messages, as well as an in depth Monograph* (typically 14-20 pages, PDF and downloadable).

You will also be invited to join an *optional* online Medicine Circle via Facebook, where we will gather to share what Medicine we are receiving from each plant - this may be through dreams, through direct knowing, through physical changes, shifts in perspective, mood, or any number ways of understanding the Plants on a deeper level.

When we each share our stories, and how the herbs affects us, we begin gather a broader and deeper picture of the totality of the Plant friend. Understanding the Plants in this way changes how we work with Plant Medicine. We learn which people might benefit from which plants, we learn their energetic & esoteric properties, and we can match them accordingly. When we can discern which plants to use during which situations & with what type of person, we become better practitioners & healers. This includes working with them for personal healing, and relationship as well. It also helps us to learn from one another, truly in Circle vs. learning from one perspective or Teacher (the Plants themselves being our main Teachers in this offering :)).

As we all work with these Plants at the same time, we heighten our ability to understand their Nature as well as weaving shared connection with each other - it isn't uncommon for similar threads of experience to start popping up amongst the Circle as we access each Plant's wisdom. Often we may share similar dreams & synchronicities as this container is held and amplified by each one of us being present to the Plant's Spirit.

We will be journeying with: Vervain, Mugwort, Motherwort, Hawthorn, Yarrow & Burdock Medicines

Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?
The course starts with the Full Moon September 20th and continues for 12 weeks, ending with the Full Moon December 18th. Guiding us from the Fall Equinox through the Winter Solstice. Clearing, Learning & Healing through the last months of 2021. However, you will have indefinite access to this course, the downloadable PDFS, and can absolutely go at your own pace with the Plant Medicines & Course material.
How long do I have access to the course?
Lifetime access! After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. All of the Monographs are also downloadable, some students have chosen to make beautiful bound books with their lessons.
How much time commitment do I need?
This course is meant to flow with your Life & be supportive in your schedule. We spend a full 2 weeks with each Medicine, so there is plenty of time to get to know them. Some folks may choose to work with our Medicine for 1-5 minutes a day, just noticing their dreams + how they feel through the day + thoughts + changes in Body, etc. Others may spend more. There is a Ritual component with each Medicine, so I do suggest spending 15-20min in deeper connection at least once during the 2 week span. The monographs are a meant to act as a resource for you indefinitely, like a book. Each one is about 15-20 pages, which includes recipes + rituals, you have the full 2 weeks to read them - or you may choose to just skim them & read the ritual <3 And come back to them when you have time! Overall, the intention is for the Medicines to hold you & teach you in your already full Life. There is no 'behind' in this offering. Wherever you are is where you are meant to be!
What if I don't have Facebook?
That's absolutely ok! I've had some previous students start a Facebook account just to be in Circle with us there, and others who opt out of this aspect & still felt they received fully from this course. The Facebook group is meant to act as a supportive space for us to share what comes up for us as we work with the Medicines. A way we can learn from one another, including me learning from you all too! However, it is not needed to participate or receive the Teachings you are calling in <3 If you have questions, or want to share comments without Facebook access you may also do this via the comment section under each Lesson on Teachable.
