We will be splitting our
time between the classroom and the working in the field. There will be
lots of hands on time, lots of hiking and exploring, some meditating and
tuning in, some readings and work outside of class, a fair amount of
lecture and (hopefully) interesting dialogue and questions. It will be
interactive and involved, as well as, quiet and contemplative. You will
be asked to work on your own journey as part of the journey we are
You can expect to learn a lot about who you are
and what it means to be you, your place among this vast world of beings
we share it with. You can expect to be challenged, intrigued, confused,
ignited, taught, inspired - not only by the curriculum and your teachers,
but by the plants themselves.
There will also be auxiliary lessons happening Between classes on Monday
evenings: Plant tastings, Q&A, Facilitated discussions of the
Readings, etc ... for Students who want more time to deepen their
skills, practice and connect with other students.
