Herbs & Natural Remedies

The abundant gifts of the local nature

herb-flowerThis course focuses on a deep connection between flora and the human being. By including local herbs and plants into our daily diet, applying them as natural remedies, it helps us to balance our body in many different ways such as a natural detoxification, disease prevention and alkalization.

Herbs-collectionsDuring this one week course we will walk in nature to explore and enjoy nature’s numerous offerings: every seed, root, flower, grass and leaf can reveal its healing benefits and potential.

You will learn how to differentiate and identify various herbs as well as their use as remedies and how to incorporate them into a diet.

herbs preparingThis course brings awareness on how to consciously nurture ourselves within the ecosystem we are living in. We learn new ways to enjoy the beautiful and wild gardens, to start seeing weeds as plants and flowers as nutrients for all the senses. Mother Nature’s generosity is so vast.
