If you’ve ever longed to explore (or return to) the traditional healing knowledge of the plant world in a hands-on way that allows you to enrich your own life, this program opens an initial pathway of learning that incorporates body, mind, and spirit.
The Healing Year is a foundational, herbal medicine-making program that guides you and empowers you through the shifting rhythms of the year.
In the Autumn quarter (12 weeks), you will learn basic herbal recipes against a rich tapestry of healing modalities and stories from ancient cultures. We will further explore dietary guidelines for supporting the body as the year dwindles. In the deep engagement with the herbs, you will also begin the creation of your own Materia medica.
Each month introduces you to a major seasonal herb as you journey along the three avenues of our name, Art Healing Science, in the company of other like-minded souls. A typical month of the program unfolds like this:
Week One. Herb of the Month
Week Two. Art: Medicine-Making*
Week Three. Healing: Seasonal Ritual
Week Four. Science: Creating a Materia medica for the herb of the month
The holistic approach of The Healing Year offers something for everyone: for those who like to use their body to heal and understand the world, for those who tend to arrive from knowledge of the mind, or for those who work first from spirit.
For folks who are stronger in one approach (as most of us are), this may offer a new kind of equilibrium, and for those who haven’t yet discovered their natural inclination, a new way of understanding their own innate gifts.
As the program is entirely online, there is no"grading" in involved in this program—just guidance—and you can certainly choose to enroll in a self-study sense.** At the same time, active participation in the discussion forum each week is encouraged to foster community and to stay engaged.
Students receive consistent personal attention from the instructor and can further enrich their experience through discussion with fellow students.
There is also no set meeting-time, which is ideal in our busy lives. As the course is entirely online, you can simply check in at the beginning of each week to see what the activity is, and then complete it according to your own schedule and leisure.
