Building Plant Relations

with Yarrow Willard, March 17-18, 2018

Course Information

In this 2-day intensive, Herbalist Yarrow Willard will dive deep into the world of communication and relationship building with plants and the natural world. 

Often in the education process, there is much learning of theoretical information and practical skills, but a lack of development in an internal language of listening directly to what our sensory perceptions are telling us. When we start to hone these skills, we build more confidence and trust in ourselves as practitioners, healers and caretakers of our community and the planet we live on.

This class will be a mix of experiential practices, ancient wisdom teachings, new-edge science, medicine crafting and sensory perception awakening. Yarrow will weave together a variety of concepts and practices that bridge our understanding of how to build and strengthen healthy living systems and relationships within ourselves and plant communities.
