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.

October 6th: Strophanthus and Allium (onion)
November 3rd: Achillea (yarrow) and Taraxacum (dandelion)
December 1st: Peppermint and Daisy
January 5th: Betula (birch) and Primula (cowslip)
February 2nd: Pulsatilla (pasque flower) and Fragaria (wild strawberry)
March 2nd: Chelidonium (greater celandine) and Chamomile
