This series of webinars will focus on the phenomenology of healing plants, as we strive to learn how the healing properties of a plant can be understood through the “language” of shape, size, proportion, growth pattern and environment. We will base the study on Markus Sommer’s book “Healing Plants: Herbal Remedies from Traditional to Anthroposophical Medicine”, which is available at steinerbooks.com.
Each session will be devoted to two healing plants, with 20-25 minute presentations by PAAM members or guest speakers on each of the healing plants.
Schedule: six Thursday evening sessions, beginning at 8:30pm EST/7:30 CST/6:30 MST/5:30 PST, lasting for about 60 minutes.
