March 2-3: The Magic of Herbs workshop with Matthew Wood (9:30 - 5:30pm)
Learn how to understand a plant’s medicine in the most deep, powerful way possible. We will explore “The Doctrine of Signatures”which is based on the idea that a plants appearance, growth habit, and environmental niche reflects its basic essence, which is the source and core of its medicinal properties. We will also look at “spirit signatures” (“when the plant looks like an animal or is used by an animal”–Karyn Sanders) which indicates a particularly powerful plant medicine with a correspondence to a medicine animal. The class will look at some of the major medicine animals: bear, deer,badger, wolf, rabbit, underwater panther (catfish), turtle, snake, etc.

March 21: Ceremonial Spring Equinox Cacao Plant Journey (7-10 pm)
March 22: Herbs for Sleep & Nurturing The Dreamtime (6-9 pm)
March 23: Plant Journey with Mugwort (1-3 pm)
March 24: Plant Journey with Hops (1-3 pm)

Matthew Wood workshop: Medicine Animals & Constitutional Types: March 30-31,
(9:30 am - 5:30 pm)
In this class you will learn how to recognize constitutional types in people. We will explore the relationship of constitutions to strengths and weaknesses, and the concept that treatment is by “like to like,” or the essence of the plant to a disorder in the corresponding essence in the human. We start with the three constitutions: thin, medium, thick, or vata, pitta, kapha, or nervous/ectomorph, motive/mesomorph, and visceral/endomorph. Each of the three constitutional types split into about
6 or 7 secondary constitutions, corresponding to different organs and systems and animals. The class will also explore the importance of the personal medicine animal or alter ego, the “animal self” that every “human self” is conjoined with.
