An Online Course with Sean Donahue
April 5 - June 7
$100 - $150
Where do magic, biology, and healing intersect?
In this 10 week course, we will examine the body and the herbs that help to heal and nurture it through the five elements commonly identified in Western magical traditions -- Earth, Air, Fire, Water, and Ether/Spirit. We will also briefly touch on other systems of energetics as well.
This will be a journey of discovery into our own bodies and an exploration of how plants change our consciousness, our sensations, our emotions and our health.
We will move through the elements one by one, exploring how each manifests in our bodies of the course of one week, and how different herbs act on that element within us during the following week.
No prior experience in herbalism or magic is required -- just an openness to new experiences and a willingness to learn.
