Intro to Constitutions and Herbal Energetics
This class is a cornerstone to my approach to herbalism, and I highly recommend it to people who have taken the Intro class and are seeking more. Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine and Western Herbalism all use constitutional types to explain patterns of disease. For example, some people are susceptible to heat (irritation, overstimulation), others to cold (lack of function). Knowing types can instruct your health regimen and what herbs are best for you. This is a hot topic for those interested in holistic health!

This class will focus on the western four element system (originally established by early greek physicians like Hippocrates), with some Chinese medicine concepts introduced where the western system falls short.

In this two-hour class, we'll learn:
- The four qualities (hot, cold, damp, dry) and how they show up in the body
- The four elements and how they pertain to constitutional types and body function
- The paradox of opposites- why we don't fit in one box only.
- Personality traits and how they fit in
- herbal flavors and actions and how to select herbs based on constitution

We'll take a few simple tests to determine which constitution you are in both systems. Come with a notebook and your curiosity!

TEACHER: Natalie H.



Natalie runs the Adiantum School of Plant Medicine, a local herb school in Seattle, where she teaches classes on plant ID, medicine making, and holistic herbalism. She has spent several years acquiring and synthesizing knowledge about Western Herbalism, PNW Materia Medica, nutrition, and Chinese Medicine. She is particularly passionate about traditional assessment techniques, the effects of emotions on the physical body, and holistic models of understanding imbalance. She also loves to forage and grow medicinal plants of all kinds, because cultivating a direct relationship with the living plant is not only educational but very healing. All in all, she is an empiricist at heart who loves experimentation and exploration into the possibilities of nourishing and strengthening our bodies and souls. As a teacher, Natalie is flexible, engaging and multi-sensory. She has extensive teaching experience, and is always looking for ways to keep things fresh and exciting.
