The mission of the Green Comfort School of Herbal Medicine is to educate and empower individuals to heal themselves using herbal medicine.
Welcome to Green Comfort. We invite you to join us for the classes we have lined up for the 2015-2016 school year. The two classic herbal education programs, Foundations of Medicinal Herbalism and Herbal Apothecary are 10 month, once a weekend classes which begin in September. Each of these series will allow the community herbalist to integrate the knowledge, wisdom and craft into her/his home, life and practice. The syllabus for each program is also posted so have a look and register soon to join us.
Matthew Wood is back in October! He is offering Shamanic Herbalism to take us deeper in to the understanding of how plants and animals teach us about their medicine through energetics, doctrine of signatures and journeys. We will dedicate our clinic day on Friday to practice with Matthew while seeing clients. Saturday night there is a special performance on the extinction of flora and fauna and even indigenous people who have spoken for the animals, plants and land. Share that special evening with Matt at 1000 Faces Mask Theater. The Sunday the practice, integration and deeper understanding of how to apply these shamanic techniques to how herbal practices is revealed. A very interesting experience!
