Hawthorn & Honey School of Herbal Medicine
Deeply rooted in the Pacific Northwest, Hawthorn & Honey offers seasonal apprenticeships and monthly workshops in Tacoma, WA. Come on a journey through our local forests, beaches, and mountains as we learn the art of herbalism in nature – as it’s intended – awakening our senses and connecting with the plants.
In this year-long apprenticeship, we’ll break the foundations of herbalism down piece by piece, through guided seasonal explorations where you’ll meet the plants in person, in-depth study on how the body works, and hands-on practice where you’ll synthesize everything you’ve learned in the kitchen.
Our students learn the history and medicinal uses of each plant and how to create a daily plant practice using meal preparation, meditation, journaling, and dream work. Each day our apprentices create new remedies, adding to their home apothecary, while also building a personal relationship with the plants through intuitive plant communication and personal ancestry research.
Through the many years that I’ve taught this seasonal apprenticeship, I’ve found that it’s not just about learning the art of herbalism. It’s the connection with nature, the relationship with the plants. They’re here to help you – whether it’s to heal your heart, rediscover yourself, or find your true path. The plants offer a grounding force apart from what people can offer us. This is what it’s really about…taking the time to build relationships with plants that will change your life.
