inquiry and engagement with the medicine of the earth
an earth medicine school
dwelling is a comprehensive dive into holistic earth medicine study. It’s designed to inspire a thorough examination of our humxn connection to the healing we can find in relationship with the natural world. The curriculum is comprised of three five month courses building from foundations to clinical practice with weekly classes and in-depth guided self study. Students may drop in for one year or go so deep with all three.
Courses teach tools and knowledge for the mastery and deepening of your own natural healing, engaging earthly forces and natural elements honored by our ancestors. dwelling focuses on traditions of herbal medicine, stone medicine, and embodiment. Students are poised to integrate acquired skills and wisdom into your personal and professional wellness practices.
dwelling begins with the invitation, the first layer of education. Throughout invitation, you can expect classes to involve thoughtful conversation around both the how and the why of earth medicine, meditation to deepen your relationship with your body, intuitive connection with plants and stones, medicine making, working one-on-one with instructors whose practices inspire you, and building connections to be of service in your community and make an impact through holistic medicine.
The program teaches on a variety of important topics including the basics of holistic medicinal traditions, how to cultivate intuition and an intuitive relationship with earth medicine, the ethics and safety of sharing medicine with family, friends, and community, medicine-making, cultivation and wildcrafting of herbs, using healing foods as medicine, and the importance of health justice. Much of the coursework involves your personal journey, deepening these connections.
