Robin Rose Bennett
Note: This series will now be offered online. Sessions of all our online programs will be recorded and shared with registrants after each is completed for a limited time only.
Crafting your own herbal preparations will lead you to a happier, healthier self—and save you money along the way. In this empowering course, we will work with fresh and dried herbs, exploring their properties and making tinctures, liniments, oils, infusions, vinegars, syrups, salves, compresses and more! We will work with herbs that are generally available and easy to find, even in this challenging time, such as (sing along): parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Robin Rose will focus on remedies that are helpful for nervous, immune and respiratory system health. Each class will include a centering meditation and the opportunity to make a preparation that Robin will demonstrate. She will continue her decades-long practice of introducing a song for everyone to sing while they make the medicine. This is healing in and of itself! A list of optional supplies to have on hand will be sent to you when you register. If you prefer simply to watch and make your own medicine later, or have been unable to get the recommended supplies, you will be invited to sing along and help hold sacred space and good energy for your classmates as they craft their herbal preparations and you learn along with them.
WiseWoman herbalist Robin Rose will share some of her favorite recipes and most effective remedies that are even more important and useful during this challenging time we find ourselves in together. Additionally, Robin Rose will share detailed guidance on how to identify a few wildly abundant medicinal weeds. Herbs are magical, however, preparing and using them doesn’t have to be mystifying. This will be a fun, enriching experience, and having fun is highly recommended, especially in difficult times!
