with Linda Shanahan
Herbal medicine has been practiced for thousands of years around the world and has evolved in the United States influenced by the original inhabitants of this land and those who have come after, bringing traditions of every continent with them. American herbalism has evolved to reflect these traditions, creating a unique practice that pulls from both folk and clinical traditions, from every continent and many cultures.
Linda will discuss historical traditions and their impact on herbal medicine today, ethical considerations of practicing plant medicine with wild and cultivated plants, the dizzying selection of products in the herbal marketplace, basic herbal terminology and herbal preparations. Linda will bring samples of herbs and herbal creations to see, feel, smell and taste.
