Goethean Plant Exploration with Amanda Howe
May 18 @ 9:00 am - May 19 @ 5:00 pm
This Medicinal Plant Intensive is an opportunity for those with a keen interest in Herbal Medicine to deepen their knowledge, understanding and insight of the living medicinal plants they use as medicines. If you work closely with plants you will find this weekend a transformational process where you will gain deeper levels of understanding of the plants’ medicine – even for plants you work with, and think you know well. Amanda uses a holistic approach based on the works of Goethe. Goethe developed a unique approach to science that brings acute scientific observation together with the intuitive senses enlivened through creative process. The methodology uses a hands-on and experiential approach. The subjects covered over the weekend span a broad-spectrum including Botany, Organoleptics, Energetics, Understanding the Actions of Plants, Observational Skills, Ecology, Therapeutics, Medicine Making, Pharmacy, Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacology and Harvesting. Amanda has been teaching these Intensives to Herbalists for many years and they are engaging, fun and full of “aha” moments of insight.
