Study Herbal Medicine with Belle this winter
WINTER ROOTS MEDICINE COURSE
Spread over four insightful monthly sessions, we’ll explore how working with roots can be a powerful aid to remedy winter blues, fatigue, and bolster your immune system. This is an opportunity to not only explore your own healing, but also to acquire valuable skills in crafting your own medicines that you can share with others.
Throughout the course, you can expect to:
Learn the Basics: The first session is an introduction to herbalism and root medicine. You will have the opportunity here to lay out your intention for the winter months ahead.
Hands-On Medicine Making: You will gain practical, hands-on experience in creating your own medicine. We'll meet a new plant each class and focus deeply on its medicine. You will be given the root medicine to take for 5 days ahead of each session so that you can experience the medicine in your body before we learn the medicinal and scientific information about the herb along with a recipe.
Boost Immunity: Discover how root medicine can be your ally in strengthening your immune system, helping you stay vibrant and resilient during the winter months.
Combat Winter Blues: Take time for yourself to connect with like-minded earth-lovers and deepen your connection to the incredible support available to us from Mother Earth. Each session will include a ritual for you to use at home so have more tools at your fingertips to lift your spirits.
I have a particular affinity with root medicine. I was undiagnosed as a coeliac until my thirties and experienced draining stomach pain for much of my younger life. Before my diagnosis, marshmallow root and dandelion root were an enormous help in lessening my pain. Once I figured out what the problem was, it was to dandelion, burdock and yellow dock roots that I turned to heal and restore my digestive system. I have explored deeply in my own healing the incredible benefits of root medicine, and I am excited to share this knowledge with you.
Join me for 4 hands on practical medicine sessions to get us through the winter months. Even though the plants are dying back, root medicine gives us the chance to connect deeply with the earth through the winter.
