Course Information The late Dr. Oliver Sacks said that the two most important diagnostic questions were “Who are you?” and “How do you be?” Somatic herbalism combines insights from psychology, neurobiology, and traditional western herbalism to help subtly shift the felt sense a person has of being embodied in this world in this moment. Learn how to help people find greater vitality and experience deeper presence by working with minute doses of herbal medicines and the body’s own capacity to heal. Course Instructor Sean Donahue is a member of the faculty of the School of Western Herbalism at Pacific Rim College in Victoria, BC, and co-founder, with Alicia Crockett and Matthew Wood, of the Portland School of Herbal Wisdom in Portland, OR (where he also has a private practice.) He is a priest and holder of the Green Wand in the BlackHeart line of the Feri Tradition of witchcraft. He lives on the traditional territory of the Yakima Nation in Trout Lake, WA. His writing regularly appears in Plant Healer magazine and on the website Gods & Radicals among other publications. Sean works to integrate the insights of Traditional Western Herbalism, somatic psychology, European shamanic and magical traditions, phytochemistry, and neurobiology. The result is a clinical approach based on shifting and deepening a person’s felt sense of embodied presence and connection with the living world. He has a special passion for working with people whose experiences and worldviews are frequently misunderstood or discounted in conventional health care settings.
