May 10: Nervous system part 2
If you crave a hot chai in the winter or want to cool off with a juicy piece of watermelon in the summer, then you are already familiar with the concept of energetics in your food. This same concept can be very helpful in building relationships with medicinal plants.
We will begin this class by exploring some basic herbal energetics, classifying herbs with our senses in terms of their qualities of hot, cold, dry, or damp. We will also talk about our own energetics as individuals (“I always run hot”… "My skin is super dry all year”…), and think about appropriate herbal compliments for individual constitutions and imbalances.
This class goes beyond a “this herb for that illness” approach and presents a much more dynamic, personalized, and effective way to match herbs to individuals. When we know the plants with our own senses, there is no need for memorization. This is a great place to begin your herbal journey or to dive deeper into more nuanced formulation.
