Green Allies explores herbal medicine through direct experiences with plants, plant spirits (fairies, devas), and plant medicines with guidance from Susun Weed.
This course is an invitation to explore herbal medicine and the green nations (plants) both realistically - through hands-on field work - and fantastically - through trances and shamanic journeys to the hidden realms of the devas and fairies. Your skills in botany, nomenclature, pharmacy, gardening will be nurtured through focused work with one green ally--of your choice. Your investigations and experiments with your green ally will provide you with a thorough understanding of how to find, grow, prepare, and use the wealth of herbal medicines around you.
