Guido Masé Aromatics, Bitters, and Tonics: A Simple System to Support Well-being There are thousands of plants that are used for health around the world - the sheer number can seem daunting. But there are simple ways to start using these herbs, in safe and effective ways, to maximize wellness for yourself, your friends, and your family. We will explore three classes of botanicals, learn how inextricably tied they are to our own physiologies, and discover the crucial role they play in maintaining vibrant health: aromatic plants, valued for their effects on mind and spirit; bitter plants, essential for digestive health (and more), and tonic plants, which support immune and cardiovascular function. Together, these allies provide a toolkit to help us navigate the modern world with grace and resilience, and reconnect us to the wild world in which we evolved.

Rank #3: Wild Plants for Food and Remedy in the Seasonal Cycles

Podcast cover
Read more
Many of us feel lost and long for a way home to a right relationship with the earth and our plant allies. We seek ways to take our medicine and food into our own hands in ways that honor our connection to all beings and empower us as individuals. In this inspiring lecture, Heron Brae discusses seasonal patterns in relationship to plants, and the inner seasonal rhythms that echo within and around us. Calling attention to these patterns can help us deepen our relationship to the changing energies of nature. In this time of the waning sun of late summer, which plants are vibrant and ready to pick? What ways can we tend and work with plants to support their optimal growth? What are the seasonal patterns that we can learn from through watching and working with our plant allies? She discusses the entire wheel of the year, the many layers of patterns within this model, including plant harvesting and medicinal characteristics. Come away with a map of your personal yearly cycles and the plants that call to us within that cycle.

Rank #4: Energetics of Aphrodisiacs Pt.1

Podcast cover
Read more
Jim McDonald “Aphrodisiac” is a highly problematic term, predominantly because of the popular but mistaken belief that they create "automatic interest" in anyone/everyone who uses them. Products advertised with guarantees for amazing results often fail to deliver, or (not infrequently) are found to be adulterated with drugs. Looking at lists of plants deemed “aphrodisiacs”, we see everything from strong, druglike herbs (yohimbe) to culinary spices (ginger) to adaptogens (ashwangandha) and antispasmodics (kava). What gives? Well, just like all other aspects of herbcraft, one person’s turn on can put another person out…in other words, energetics apply here as well. We’ll look at what indications make certain herbs appropriate for certain people, and give you some engaging ideas to ponder with your partner(s). Samples will be passed around for us all to experience the varying energetics of each plant.

Rank #5: The Work of the United Plant Savers: Why Sustainable Herb Sourcing Matters

Podcast cover
Read more
Susan Leopold, PhD The Work of the United Plant Savers: Why Sustainable Herb Sourcing Matters Join us for firsthand stories from the frontlines of the conservation work of the United Plant Savers! From sandalwood in Hawaii and peyote in Texas, to osha in Colorado and the ginseng of Appalachia, this talk will highlight several medicinal plants that need our engagement. The work of UpS is unique as there is no other organization dedicated to the conservation of at-risk native medicinal plants. As consumers of herbal medicine, we need to understand where our ingredients come from and what factors make a plant at-risk. UpS has partnered with Mountain Rose Herbs on the launch of the new "Forest Grown" program to promote forest farming of traditional herbs in Appalachia. Learn about this effort and how you can become plant savers in these critical times of rapid extinction of native biodiversity and global deforestation. Plants need us, and each of us can make a difference by healing the planet and ourselves.
