AstroEarth 

Ayurveda <> Herbalism <> Astrology

 Part school, part study group, part personal development. A unique journey reconnecting you to the earth, the elements, and to your authentic spirit.  Join us as we learn with the earth, reconnect back to the deeper Self, and explore holistic herbalism through Ayurveda and Astrology. 

Taking place on our organic and biodynamic land in River Falls, Wisconsin you’ll be immersed in fields of medicinal plants, clean air, happy pollinators, and like minded community. For brand new and experienced herbalists alike, this course is designed to use and develop your senses and intuition to understand plants and spirit in a whole new way. 

Having been in the design phase for over 7 years and with over a decade of research and development, this course brings together holistic modalities taught through various learning styles. Herbalism, Ayurveda, Astrology, Mindfulness, and Earth Awareness taught through hands on experimental learning, lectures, social engagement, and solitary reflection. Starting in the spring and continuing through the growing and harvest season, participants will learn and explore with the changing of the season and the blossoming of the gardens.

The farm is an easy 45 minute commute from the Twin Cities.  There are many local accommodations in Hudson, River Falls, or Prescott for anyone traveling from a distance.  Each Wednesday evening we will dive into the subject matters and then each Saturday session will be hands on and experiential learning on the farm- a chance to practice and utilize the class content.

What to Expect

 This is not a clinical herbalism program.  If you are interested in opening a practice and seeing clients, send us an email and we will connect you with a handful of programs.  Instead, this course is about developing the holistic practitioner- helping to shape the way in which you perceive and experience plants, nature, and humans alike. Think of it as a self development course through plants.

You will not be memorizing a list of herbs and their medicinal uses.  Instead, we will practice using the senses and intuition in order to perceive the energetic properties of plants and phenomena. Our goal is that by the end of the course, you will be well on your way to being able to understand (without having to use external resources) the energetic pattern of any plant or person.  By greater understanding the energetics, patterns, and elements around us, we can understand balance and imbalance, harmony and disease on a deep level.

This course will require your active engagement and participation.  You will asked to do personal reflection, continue learning outside of each module, connect with classmates both one-on-one and in a group, and share in front of the class.  Though there is a ton of material to go through, you will be processing that material in real life with your fellow classmates.

Investment

We strongly believe that this information and experience should be accessible to everyone and are trying our hardest to make this course available to all. Especially in the wake (and middle!) of the Coronavirus pandemic, we believe that this information is at the forefront of our current paradigm shift.  Therefore, we have created a tiered payment system.  If none of these options work for you, especially if you are part of the BIPOC community, please reach out and we will do our best to work with you.
 

Coronavirus: We are dedicated to creating a safe container for learning and exploration.  We are keeping our enrollment sizes small not only in response to the coronavirus, but also because we want to create a safe and emotionally intimate space to connect and grow together as a community. Most classes will be held entirely outside (dress for the weather) and we will be following safety regulations when indoors or in close proximity.
