Somatic Herbalism

Somatic Herbalism

taught by Sean Donahue

Course description

The late Dr. Oliver Sacks said that the two most important diagnostic questions were "Who are you?" and "How do you be?"

Somatic herbalism combines insights from psychology, neurobiology, and traditional western herbalism to help subtly shift the felt sense a person has of being embodied in this world in this moment. Learn how to help people find greater vitality and experience deeper presence by working with minute doses of herbal medicines and the body's own capacity to heal.
