Medicine making comes in many forms- from the choosing of ingredients sautéed in cast iron to the gathering of roots, leaves & petals bathed in alcohol in a mason jar, every herb lover & kitchen witch finds their way to inviting the spirits of plants into tiny little bottles. In this class we will honor the inevitability of gravity and the gentle pressure it lends, allowing us to create a tincture with measurably more constituents, increased potency & an expansion of taste & action, while eliminating extraction time. We will discuss the significance of making medicine aligned with the days- planets & moons as we move step–by step through the percolation process.
Thursday, January 11th, 7-9 pm at Soma Vida (2324 E Cesar Chavez St, Austin, TX 78702)
$33 for the 2 hour class.
*Due to the limited number of spaces available, we cannot offer refunds on classes.*
About the Teacher:
Sheri M. Hupfer: Witch, wild crafter & medicine maker of the wearable.
Through the collecting of bone, petal, root, metal and leather she offers much of her medicine in the form of adornment. She believes that in a time when much of our plant medicine is being misused, clear cut or over harvested, the creation of amulets and talisman, flower essences and the use of drop doses can serve to support the sustainability of our plant allies and the medicine they offer.
She has been teaching for over 9 years at the CSCH in Boulder, Co and has offered community classes at Sacred Journey School of Herbalism, Wildflower School of Botanical Medicine, Sage Country Herb School, & Naropa University. As a nomad, she continues to teach, create & weave together her love of art & medicine wherever she is called. She believes in teaching from the heart & sharing from personal experience as she gathers the songs & stories of the natural world.
