Snail Mail Courses in Herbal Medicine

I have two (the third is postponed) ongoing herbal medicine courses that are mailed out via the real post. In each course there is wonder to be had and a certain kind of leaning towards a particular element of herbalism.

I wanted to send out courses so you don’t have to go online, so you can learn about herbalism wherever you are and can receive herbs and work to do from me that you can make, feel, smell, see. Even one little package of the dried herb from one herbal journey, let’s say yarrow, is going to have an effect on you when it arrives in your hands in a way that a picture online can’t.

At the moment I am just finalising three courses, all of which have a little write up on the blog but I’ll reiterate here:

Course 1: Wild, Seasonal, Local

Course 2: Tend Her Garden

Course 3: Resilience and Herbal Rebellion – postponed

1. WILD, SEASONAL, LOCAL

Plant Allies and Rewilding

This course is aimed at those who would like to learn about the plant allies growing around us and the treasures they hold. Each month you will be sent a beautiful package about which plants are growing and what to look out for. The package will include identification, exercises and recipes so you can get to know your local medicinal and edible plant allies.

Dates: this will be a rolling course so you can join at any time. Each month will have different plants to look out for and exercises to do for 1 year. At the end, no matter when you start, you will have a calendar of local plants and how to use them.

Course includes

12x mailed out packages – this includes a beautiful little pamphlet or notes about what is growing and information about these plants, how to identify, where to find them and how to approach and use them, recipes, beautiful samples to try at home and share your experiences with.

2x personal zoom meetings (1:1)

Online forum should you like to be online

Investment for 12 months of Wild, Seasonal, Plant Allies:

Nettle folk (those who cannot afford more) £177

Marigold folk (those who are comfortable) £233

Note, if you are local, you can collect your box each month, if you are abroad and postage is more costly we will look at the cost and add on or if there are others collecting, the additional cost can be absorbed to total cost tbc.

2. TEND HER GARDEN

Wild Medicines for Women

This course is specifically for women and will include 13 beautiful packages sent out for work under each moon cycle. Every moon students will receive a little set of plant notes on a specific women’s plant ally. We’ll work with that plant for the moon cycle with information, exercises and recipes you can make. I’ll try and coincide so that you can find the plants in the wild but every package will include a sample remedy of the plant to work with.

Each woman will go deeper into her relationship with that plant each moon and forge a small apothecary of the plants of 13 moons, she will learn how to tend her garden. Vulval, womb, vaginal, breast and emotional health will be explored alongside menarche, moon time, fertility, menopause and cronehood. Grief will also be explored in relation to being a woman and we will explore the affinity of certain plants with the archetypes of womanhood . The course will be immersive and magical.

We will check in with personal 1:1 zooms about how you’re doing and what you’d like to focus on. We will also have an online group to share, connect, discuss and marvel! Local groups can be set up too and I will help with those.  If you don’t want to go online you can mail me back work and questions and I’ll reply.

Course includes:

13 magical packages

2 x zoom meetings (1:1)

Online forum

Sisterhood potential and plant ally deepening
