Plant Provings! Flavors of Herbal Actions
Information is not knowledge. Many herbalists begin to learn plants by memorizing and using herbs haphazardly hoping for the best. This can be
a long and frustrating path getting to know the herbs. Join me to learn how to get to know plants by flavor and effect on our bodies. Doing provings is a much more efficient and helpful to know a few plants very well. Think of
this class as one would a wine or beer tasting, but we are going much deeper. We will be checking in with our own vitality, the flavors of a plant and
seeing if we can figure out how to use a plant without knowing what the plant is. The dissection offered is based on flavors and properties from the Greek and Physiomedicalist Traditions.
