Registration is now open for the 2019 Fireweed Herbal Apprenticeship! More than a foundational program in herbal medicine, the Apprenticeship offers students the opportunity to learn directly from the healing plants themselves. Timed with the first burst of emerging buds in spring and commencing with the fallen leaves and restfulness of autumn, the Apprenticeship takes place through the most vital time of the year when the plants are awake and abundant all around us. Surrounded by nature and the medicine plants at the farm and in the wild, a unique feature of the program is the opportunity to meet and spend time with each and every plant covered in your materia medica. Embodiment of plant wisdom is offered through lessons on herb growing, harvesting and processing, wildcrafting, medicine making, and plant spirit communion. Students will gain tools for practical application with the study of herbal energetics, constitutional theory, formulation, and more. Full course details and application at fireweedschool.com/apprenticeship. The course is filling up quickly so if your heart feels called to this training make sure to get your application in soon! “This course is essential to anyone looking to enrich their lives through experiential knowledge-based learning. From growing plants, to wildcrafting; medicine making to astrology; body systems to plant walks...It is honestly impossible to put into words all of the special qualities of this program. It is unique, and the thing about being unique is that there is nothing else to compare it to-one of a kind; rare. Jessy is fostering something extremely special with her school, farm, workshops, and everything in between... doing so with complete reverence for the earth. Not only is she herself a wealth of knowledge, but the space given for direct plant perception and communion allows for a very special type of learning, one of individual proportion. Most notably, is the lovely way this apprenticeship intrinsically creates a safe and open environment for everyone to share. Together as a class, we hold a beautiful space that enhances that heart-centred vibration we are each looking to re-kindle at our core"
