LIVING HERBALISM: ENTERING THE CIRCLE
with Samuel Perry & Susanna Raeven
July 17 – 19, 2020
What does a living herbal tradition look like? This is a precious opportunity to explore the wisdom of traditional herbal energetics amidst the blooming gardens at Raven Crest Botanicals, a magical herb farm in upstate NY. Whether you are just starting out on your herbal journey or if you have been studying for some time, an understanding of the traditional skills of pattern recognition and assessment are at the core of a successful herbal practice.
Together we hone observational skills to identify the medicinal properties of plants and to discern the particular physical and emotional states in ourselves and others that these plants can remedy. We will train to see the plant world and our own bodies as a part of nature's cycles and offer a variety of tools to encourage and inspire you to engage the living world directly.
Samuel Perry is a practicing clinical herbalist who is dedicated to giving students a direct experience of herbal energetics using simple intuitive methods. As herbalists we practice looking deeply into the patterns of the natural world. Sam’s method offers a way to receive, retain and reflect on this vast amount of information and develop a fluid herbal practice based on direct observations.
Susanna Raeven, herbalist and owner of Raven Crest Botanicals, will co-host and share her plant knowledge and wise women teachings with you.
