September 15: Plant Walk
Medicine grows everywhere around us. Many medicinally functional plants grow in our immediate environment that are useful for physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual healing. We close an unhealthy connection gap when we learn to recognize the variety of all life around us and what it has to offer, and when we use and perpetuate the knowledge of ancient traditional ways that humans kept themselves healthy and thriving for thousands of years. Often healing begins simply with this connection itself to tradition, nature, and the plants as individuals, then is further assisted by ingestion or topical application of the specific plants and their chemistry at the level of physical biology.
In this class we will identify some local, common, and abundant plant remedies and discuss some medicinal and functional uses as we walk around our neighborhood Powderhorn Park.
Herbal Medicine is a wide field with as many styles in approach as there are people in the practice. If you are interested in learning a few useful plants in an experiential and relational way, please join me in befriending some plants!
