Good Practice

As I work less I have time to process where my energies have been directed. Teaching has been a focus since I taught Headstart back in the 60s. As this last big-tons of planning- flights and people and emails and huge preparation approaches I thought to send this email out.

“Good rainy morning,

Matthew, Stratton and I will begin our 3-day intensive November 3rd at 9 AM. I cannot stress the value of sitting with any weathered herbalists to receive whatever skills through observation and partial practice. You will have a task while we talk with the client. In our setting Matt Wood and I see the client together. We have very different approaches and magically come to the same formulations. Then Stratton supervises in the apothecary. Each participant has a task preparing teas, tinctures, flower essences etc for the client.

We will wax poetic on clinical skills the other half of the day.

This is the end of the big intensive era for me. It is time for me to be a weekend grandma and enjoy playing for the duration. I will continue to teach and have solo clinical experiences.

All 3 Days $750
A single day $250
Two days $500

Monday is diagnostics all day $200 10-5

Please join Matthew Wood, Stratton Semmes and me for this last big celebration of good herbal practice!
Margi”

Pondering…. where are all those students who said they wanted to become herbalists? Throughout my forty plus years of following the path I always understood the need to sit at the knee of my elders. I always scraped the funds together to travel to or bring to me exceptional Herbalists. Rosemary Gladstar, David Winston, the late William LeSassier, the late Cascade Anderson Geller, Chanchel Chabrera, the late Raylene Kawaiaea, Kay Parent, Glen Nagel, Karyn Sanders and Sara Holmes, Annie McIntyre, Guido Mase, Phyllis Light, Tammi Sweet, David Bruce Leonard and the list goes on! Of these you will note that some have passed. Suddenly and unexpectedly. Study well and frequently! Life is full of twists that bring you joy and laughter and quaking tears.

Every day above ground is a gift!
