Animal Medicines, Plant Medicines, Constitutional Types
Join one of the nation’s most experienced herbalists as he leads us in an exploration of the relationship between shamanistic beliefs and practices and the ancient, traditional use of herbs. This may be Matthew’s last teaching at Philo School of Herbal Energetics, in Mendocino County, Ca.
The three day schedule allows us time to link the “animal medicines” with the endocrine system and constitutional typology. This will also be a good overview of the endocrine system in a imagination-friendly fashion. (Those who have taken Matthew’s class on the endocrine in 2016 in Philo or elsewhere receive a 1/3 off since this will be partly review for them). “I taught this three day class at Misty Meadows, in New Hampshire, in fall 2016, and many students got what an important lesson I was trying to convey: this material, mixing the doctrine of signatures, Nature Wisdom, animal and plant medicines, and endocrine typology reveals the underlying patterns of herbal medicine in a way that nothing else does.”
