The Herbal Experiment: Lessons from Mistakes
Herbalists are strange folk: always dosing themselves with various potions and chomping on questionable leaves. This is largely how humans have learned about plants over the centuries. You will never learn something more thoroughly than through direct experience, and western herbalists really take that to heart. Throughout my learning journey about plants and, I have had a great many negative and positive experiences with plants.

In this class, I will be sharing specific stories about some of my most profound educational moments, and what they have taught me about the body and about how to use herbs successfully. I will be introducing some topics from Chinese medicine blending with western herbal theory.

This class will cover some of these topics through the lens of specific plants:
- how flavor can indicate action
- herbs that move up, and herbs that move down
- when not to use diaphoretics
- the complexity of dealing with dampness in the body.
- pro-inflammatory herbs and dose tolerance
- shifting cause vs symptomatic suppression
- moving blood and building blood

This class is perfect for people who have studied herbalism a bit. Know that this is an intermediate level class, but anyone is welcome. This class will touch upon many concepts in Chinese medicine, but no background in Chinese medicine is needed.
