The Language of Plants
The Green Path is the way of naturalists, herbalists, wise women, wise men and all who are interested in the land of green; trees, plants, herbs, mosses, grasses, etc. To follow the Green Path is to experience the wonderment of the diversity of this living green world.
These individuals would have been called Green Witches, Cunning Folk or Folk Healers to acknowledge their healing skills and plant knowledge in the days gone by. These green healers followed the practice of living in harmony with the earth.
The Language of Plants is part of the Home Healer Series. It is a stand-alone course teaching you through your senses how to learn about the plants in a more profound way than just reading about them and memorizing their medicinal properties.
This course is a sensory adventure where you will taste, feel, smell, see and journey into the ways and wonders of the plant kingdom. To fully understand an herb and its healing potential is to observe and translate its unique language fully; you might call it the decoding of nature herself.
This decoding of nature is done by observing the many ways the plants can speak to us from the shape and colour of their flowers, roots, and leaves, when they bloom, the environment they grow in and much more. At the end of this course, you should be able to engage with an herb and make an educated guess as to its potential medicinal use.
You have two options with this course. ONE you can do the course, the quizzes and the making of the herbal products. TWO you can audit (take the course but not do the homework) and use the natural remedies for your family. Your Choice! BOTH choices are perfectly fine as I know people are busy.
This course is self-directed and done at your own pace, with me available to you for questions, comments, guidance, and there are quizzes and homework which I oversee.
So let's have some fun and get our hands dirty!
About the Instructor - Wendolyn Murdoch
It takes time to become a healer and an herbalist. It takes time spent with the earth to understand her patterns and magic. Medicinal plants all have personalities that you can get to know, love and ask respectfully to become your green allies. It is all about relationships.
For twenty-five years, it has been my privilege to have studied with two collectives, the Council of Elders and the Council of Healers who have mentored me on how healing works on all levels as well as instructed me on the medicine of plants.
I have studied formally over the years at various schools to learn what a healer needs to know about anatomy, patterns of dysfunctions and much more. One of the most invaluable training has been through the many years of having people come to me for help. Each person has gifted me with a piece of the puzzle on how healing works, for which I am very grateful.
I also have experience as a teacher, which helps me to design courses to take a student step by step through the course materials balancing learning with hands-on experience and always with some fun thrown in!
