Welcome friends to our Programs & Offerings for 2015
Sacred Plant Traditions is an educational center devoted to all forms, functions and fashions of plants.
We teach all levels of classes on gardening, plant identification creating home apothecary as well as our celebrated Three Year Community Herbalist Training.
There are a number of great one day classes including Kitchen Apothecary, The Art of Fermentation, and many more.
For those that want more than a day but are not able to enroll in Foundations, our Six-Week class is now offered twice this year with night classes as well. The overwhelming response to this series has been great!
We offer our very popular Nine-Month Foundations program for those who wish to deepen their journey. After 25 years of teaching this format, we are delighted with how experience and all the participants, have perfected the curriculum as well as the flow and transformational nature of this program. I am in awe of the profound effect plants have on our lives and our relationship to self, family and community. This program is a testimony to that truth.
The revision and implementation of our Clinic training is complete. What an elegant and thorough system to ground our practice with – Traditional Western Energetics. Take a look at the two year advanced programs.
Guest teachers this year are still being arranged but so far our special guests include:
Matthew Wood, January 19
Phyllis Light, March 27 - 29
Mimi Hernandez, TBA
Lorna Mauny - Brodek, Sept 23 – 24
AND A SPECIAL TREAT: Rosita Arvigo, Homage to Ix Chel – JULY 10 – 12
This year we celebrate the 9th Annual Gaia Gathering for Women. In Mayan culture, the number nine is very sacred and represents completion of a cycle. We have very special guests for this year and a ceremony that will honor all the years that we have celebrated Beltane and see how the future Gatherings unfold.
Whatever form or fashion of plant medicine you choose, we welcome you to our gardens, classrooms, apothecary and sanctuary. Our mission is to help people remember their true nature as it relates to the elements and worlds around them. We invite you for tea, a class, a day, or a lifetime; for once you feel the spirit of the plants you will be touched forever.
