We had 10 people take part in our 2012 Annual Medicine Wheel workshop to learn how the four elements can be used to understand the actions and principles of herbs, and then how this apply this knowledge to help keep us healthy.
A smaller group of us joined together for the next 3 days of the Annual Herbal Intensive, and what fun we had! As usual, we prepared a St. John’s Wort tincture, Herbal Savory Vinegar, St. Joan’s oil, Prunella Vulgaris (Heal All) Glycerite, Yarrow Tinctract and Four Quadrants Healing Salve, along with many infusions, decoctions, a poultice, eyewash…..and more. We shared herbal knowledge, stories and deepened our understanding of how our health can be improved mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually, thus applying the four elements of Medicine Wheel in more depth.
Below are some photos of the herb gardens and wildlife we enjoyed during the Intensive. Some pictures and comments from participants may follow to give your their perspective. From my perspective, I have to thank those who invest their time to join in these classes and empower themselves as they learn to take control of their health through the gifts provided freely to us through mother nature.
