Embodied Herbalism - Herbal Tastes

Our taste buds are a potent gateway to deeply understanding herbal medicine.

Herbal tastes give us patterns for how herbs might work in our body (based on what constituents are present) and what the best medicine-making technique will be for each herb.

In this deeply experiential course, you’ll build your own relationship with the herbs through direct experience with the 5 major tastes: pungent, bitter, sweet, salty and sour.

In-person starts Sat Feb 17, 2024 at the delightful Kismet Cafe, Yandina and runs for 4 weeks.

Online course starts Thursday Feb 15, 2024 and runs 5 weeks.

Everyday Herbalism - online

Some of the best herbs to meet as beginners are also powerful medicines that our ancestors carefully passed down to us. That’s WHY they’re familiar!

In this 4 week course,  you’ll meet these herbs, go beyond stereotypes and learn titbits you’ve never heard before. This way you’ll learn their nuance, how to make the most of what you’ve got and never get caught out on your home remedies again.

These herbs are also the best ones to work with as a family – as they’re all multi-purpose powerhouses, yet are gentle enough for the whole family – babies to elders and everyone in between.

This is the companion course to our Herbal Starter Kit – you can take it as a stand-alone or make extra savings by bundling it with the kit.

Course starts October 2024 (at this stage probably mid-Oct to mid-Nov, but will confirm start dates mid-year).

We only run this course once per year.

Seed to Remedy

Still in development – this 1 day course brings it all together – from the growing (the seed) to making herbal remedies (remedy!)

 

From planning your medicinal garden, learning to grow your plants, when and how to harvest them for optimal medicinal content, how to process, dry and store, and then how to start using your plants to make remedies at home…. we will cover it all!

 

I haven’t seen another course like this one and I’m really excited to bring it to you. If you’re keen – please join the waitlist.

This will be an in-person course on the Sunshine Coast, probably running second-half of 2024.
