Oct 11, 2014: Hands-on Herbal Medicine: Digging Roots with Susun Weed

 

As the days shorten and the nights get chilly, plants start to store up medicine and food in their roots. Come get your hands dirty as we dig burdock, yellow dock, teasel, dandelion, and/or chicory. We will make tinctures and vinegars. We will learn how to dry and infuse roots. We will find ourselves deeply grounded and loving the Earth. . Devas, fairies, songs, stories, and Talking Stick will be part of our day. A fantastic class for beginners, though the experienced will find interesting new ways of connecting to their roots.

This day-long workshop is taught by Susun Weed at the Wise Woman Center in Woodstock NY. Class is from 10 am to 5pm; you will be given directions once you register. Each one-day workshop with Susun Weed at the Wise Woman Center includes talking stick ceremony, a weed walk, wild-food lunch, and instruction.

August 23: Hands-on Herbal Medicine/Wines and Lacto-Ferments


There are a few herbal remedies I carry with me everywhere, especially when I travel. Herbal allies give us effective ways to deal with stomach upset, headache, acid reflux, itching, infections, bug bites, jet lag, anxiety, diarrhea and constipation, food poisoning, parasites, and the thousand and one upsets of a body being asked to accommodate rapid switching of time zones and climates. In this class, we usually make slippery elm balls and lick our fingers. We sometimes make an herbal honey or a tincture or two. A wonderful class for beginners and older children. - See more at: http://www.herbalmedicinehealing.com/store/item_view.php?id=1000773&item=august-22,-2015:-your-herbal-medicine-chest-with-susun-weed#sthash.h3PE4Bki.dpuf
Before there were tinctures, there were herbal wines and beers. Before there were refrigerators, there were lacto-fermented foods of all kinds: pickles, miso, kefir, yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi, and more. Join me in celebrating the old ways and learning how easy and satisfying it is to make your own. Fermented foods of all kinds feed gut flora that keep us happy and healthy.  Students are welcome to take home starter cultures from my mothers. Everyone welcome.
