The Self-Taught Herbalist
How do you go from dabbling in tinctures to confidently using herbs for healthcare? How do you transform your enthusiasm into knowledge? Herbalism is a vast jungle of information that can be difficult to navigate without the right tools. In this two hour workshop, I will share a plethora of resources, tools and techniques that I have discovered over the years that you can use in your own journey into the study of plants as medicine.

We will be covering:
  - What a career in herbalism looks like
  - various approaches to herbalism and resources to pursue for each
  - Self experimentation
  - Creating effective learning experiences for yourself
  - Knowing your limits
  - How to look up safety and dosages
  - Remembering it all
  - Reading list

This class is best for beginner or intermediate students who want to seriously pursue an herbal education, and perhaps become an herbalist or medicine maker someday. I designed this class based on the fact that school takes time and money that not everyone has. Not only that, but some people learn the best fueled by their own passion and enthusiasm.

DATE AND TIME: Tuesday, November 12th, 7:00pm-9:00pm
LOCATION: Madrona House Apothecary + Healing Arts, 1423 34th ave, Unit C, Seattle 98122
Cost: $35
Teacher: Natalie
Max students: 16




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.
