Course Dates and Registration

This Plant Spirit Medicine course travels students into rainforest areas to study medicinal plants and trees within the context of wildcrafting. Students will be introduced to wild medicine plant propagation methods that link Earth energies, harvesting and stewardship practices all driven by wild dynamics. Students will be introduced to the art of alchemy that includes exploration into historical blending practices that includes fermentation, extracts, teas and topicals.

This two-day course is staged within a remote deep rainforest where water energies interact with ecosystems that present unique sentient power that demonstrate how a forest can become a healer of most afflictions.

We will explore the mycelium network as it interacts with the layers of stories within the forest and how the microenvironment reflects the macro environment, which demonstrates how a variety of plants and fungi contain unique healing properties.

Participants will be introduced to wild yeasts that represent the non-aquatic plankton on the Earth’s surface. By the end of this course participants will have a clearer understanding of plant spirit medicines that live in the rainforest and how through simple processes they be prepared for medicinal and culinary uses. This course instills wildcrafting practices that enhance agape stewardship with a further understanding of sentient relationships in the forest.

Once enrolled you will be provided with a pre-course package that explains further details about this course.
