Five Plants for Mood and Mind - 6 week online course
Stress, anxiety, depression, insomnia, general overwhelm... They affect us all! There are amazing herbs out there that can have drastic effects on interrupting the stress response, and boosting mood and brain function.
When we know which herb is right for us, we can radically turn our day around when we feel the effects of mental health challenges, but we need to know our herbs well enough to make good choices. Sure, you can google 'herbs for anxiety' on the internet, but you are likely to get a laundry list of dozens of herbs without enough depth to know when they are the herb of choice. If you choose randomly like this, you will get random results.
This course takes you through the neurobiology of stress and mood disorders so you can understand the mechanism that herbs interact with in the body-brain, and delves into traditional herbal wisdom to help you identify your unique bodytype (constitution) so you can get the results you want with herbs. We then dive deeply into 5 amazing herbal allies that can reduce stress, improve mood & motivation, alleviate anxiety, and improve brain function.
This is an embodied learning experience! We will learn to read how herbs affect us through our own senses, by taking a 'mystery herb' each week. This week long plant dieta x5 will provide an embodied experience of each herb so that the foundation of what you learn is based on your own experience. We will then cover the myth and history of the plant, the scientific and clinical evidence base, traditional energetic concepts as well as how to prepare it for best effect.
As part of this course you will receive 5 herbal tinctures, and 5 printable e-books, that contain all the info we cover in class, plus recipe cards. You will also have access to the recordings for 3 months.
My teaching style involves:
- embodied experiences,
- group work and peer learning,
- guided meditations to deepen your connection to the living world, and
- high-quality and complex information made digestible.
