Learn Herbal Medicine in the Southwest- Sacred Earth Medicine Apprenticeship

lesson1_marigoldJoin Herbalist Darcey Blue to learn about botanical medicines, wildcrafting, medicine making, nature awareness and skills, sacred earth connection and ceremony. Deepen, reinforce, reconnect, and sanctify your work with the plants and the earth. This apprenticeship is appropriate for beginners to herbal medicine, and will cover the basics of medicine making, plant identification, wildcrafting, & herbal energetics. This apprenticeship is also for those looking to deepen their connection with the plant medicines in a sacred and heart centered way. We will be grounded in love and respect for Gaia, the Earth- using nature awareness, nature skills, ceremony, shamanic awareness, seasonal lore, inner heart based wisdom and more. This apprenticeship will take you beyond “this herb for that condition” and set you on the path of sacred relationship with your plant medicines, with the Earth, and your own spirit. Apprentices meet for lessons, medicine making, apothecary skills, wildcrafting, ceremony and time in nature on camping trips to natural areas in the Southwest. At completion each Apprentice will receive a certificate of completion with 150 hrs of education in Herbal Medicine.  This certificate does not represent any legal rights or registration as an herbalist as there is no legal certification of herbalists at this time.
