Annual course dedicated to the in-depth research and study of the Plant Kingdom.
Bi-weekly sessions, which take place year-around in which we will listen to, observe and discover the plants in their natural habitat at Ayala Moriel's "Cave" and fragrant garden in Clil, and mostly outdoors in the wilderness of the Galilee.
The course focuses on exploring the life cycle of plants, and the mysterious and magical teachings that we can draw from their ways of life, survival mechanisms and unique qualities: Chemistry, colour, aroma, flavour and texture and the plant's way of life all teach us about the plants properties and how they can assist us in healing our body, mind, spirit and the planet.
We will develop close relationships with the local plants, as well as discover some exotic ones from far away lands that are essential for understanding the human-botanical connection and its history in medicine, cosmetics, incense and perfume.
We will learn about the history of plants from ethnobotanical point of view, their versatile applications from time immemorial - as food source, medicine, spice, construction, weaving, incense, perfume, magic, art and so much more.
The course is suitable for medicine people and healers, artists and artisans, and anyone who hears a calling from the plant world - be it from professional or personal reasons. For me personally this course is making a dream come true - to get close and intimate with the Plant People and give back to Mother Earth. This connection on and of itself is healing to all people and the planet!
The course will commence December 12th, 2019, and will take place on a bi-weekly basis, to a total of 24 sessions throughout the year.
Tuition fee: $1,666 USD, or up to 12 payments of $150 each (total of $1,800).
Exact dates and locations for the sessions will be handed to participants after signing up.
