Outline programme for herb weekend at Claridge House May 15 2018
Session 1 10.00 – 11.00 Introduce ourselves and share any prior use made of herbs. Outline the different ways herbs can be used – direct application, teas (infusions), tinctures, creams, inhaling, meditation. Some commonly used herbs for the simplest method of treatment (teas) focussing on those you could grow yourself or find in your garden (weeds!) - how to identify.
Session 2 11.30 – 12.45 Discuss use of tinctures and run a practical session helping participants to prepare tinctures, suitable for general use, from fresh or dried herbs I have brought with me. I provide all the necessary materials and equipment. Discuss where to obtain dried herbs, when to gather fresh herbs, how much to use, how to dry if necessary, storage etc. Handout giving details.
Session 3 2.00 - 3.30 How to decide which herb to use for specific personal need. Suggestions of useful books available and introduction to dowsing if participants are interested. Demonstrate how to make creams for skin conditions and bring samples of materials. If time make some herbal toothpaste.
Session 4. 3.45 – 4.45 Guided meditation on herbs as a healing process using colour photos of herbs. Close with sharing on what they have found interesting/helpful and what they hope to do with what they have learnt.
