MONTHLY STUDY GROUP

This is a unique opportunity to study with a medical herbalist, and build up your own apothecary over the year. Each month will see me delving deeply into the unique qualities of one particular medicinal plant, including:

  • its biochemical properties
  • its unique taste and energetics
  • its effect on tissue states,
  • its therapeutic actions
  • its unique history
  • its special potency and esoteric background
  • any element info and astrology links

The sessions will involve some practical tasting and we will be discussing and evaluating herbal actions and energetics together, hence you will receive the remedy in the post in advance of the class.

All classes will be held via Zoom for now, live from my herbal studio or my kitchen and will also be recorded, so plenty of people can join remotely and watch it at leisure.

The fee includes:

  • Live Zoom session with Q&A,
  • Monthly herbal remedy posted out to you (UK only)
  • Detailed handout
  • Access to the recording

I may switch this workgroup to face-to-face events once everyone feels safe and ready to do so, but a recording will always be part of the offer for those who live further away.

The first session will take place on Wednesday 15th September from 10.15am to 12.00pm.

This is the first session with a one-off charge – limited to 20 people, and a minimum intake of 10 people is required to run the session.

Introduction to Herbal Medicine Course

I just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed your course. I was fascinated by how powerful herbs can be & how many forgotten ‘weeds’ we have in our countryside that can be so therapeutic!
Not only are you a great herbalist but have a natural teaching style that is both engaging & inspiring. You clearly have spent a long time putting the course together & I loved the mix of media with videos & you talking through lots of information & the written chapters for us then to be able to absorb in our own time.
I am now constantly identifying plants & researching their therapeutic benefits! I have a freezer full of berries waiting for chilly & wet afternoons when I can make some more remedies to help my family & friends! I would definitely recommend this course to anyone else interested in natural healing. Thank you so much. Carine Evans

Kristine’s passion shines through and she delivers a fascinating subject in such as way that you are grabbing your boots and outdoors searching. Walks become a treasure hunt, and I can’t help telling everyone the benefits of the humble haw berry! Preventative medicine is growing all around us!! We just have to learn how to use it for our individual needs. The six week course covered a huge amount of the subject. It was diverse, involved and very interactive. It is a great place to start if you, like me, are inquisitive about promoting your own health and those around you. Personally, I think this should be taught in schools, children would love it, as I did. George Davis, Great Missenden.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the course, I find your narrative easy and accessible to follow and easier for me to understand than the books I have read in the past. The online materials were so much more in-depth and thorough than I had expected and you can see that you have taken a lot of time to set it all up, so thank you. I am of course still novice, but feel that the information I’ve taken on board has done what I hoped it would, I can name a few plants I couldn’t before and I am making a few simple treatments at home, all I wanted was a better connection with my environment and the knowledge to create a few ritual healing products for my family. I would really like to do another course in future with you.Liz Williams

I have massively enjoyed the 6 week course and am sad that it’s come to an end.  The lessons were really informative without being too difficult to understand. I have been much more able to go out and identify plants successfully since the class, which I have fallen in love with. I love the fact that I can bring home something from nature and either put it in a vinegar or dry it for a cream, which is super satisfying.  I am building up a lovely little store of concoctions for my family without the need to dive into pharmaceuticals first. I would love to be part of the spring class to see what is in nature then. Many thanks for opening my eyes to the possibilities of using herbs for wellness. Catherine Fenemer
