Steeped in Native American tradition, this course helps us return to the fold of the One Language shared by all of our animal and plant relations. During this session of increasing subtlety, theoretical knowledge and intellectual curiosity eventually give way to intuition and direct experience as we engage Nature on its own terms. By course’s end, participants will have gained a set of tools that will have expanded and deepened their native intelligence and intuition so that they can better communicate – and commune – with Nature and all of their fellow beings. Available to general students. Encouraged as a pre-requisite for Plant Attunement classes.

The Languages of the Physical and Personality We begin by directly engaging the One Language through our physical senses, experiencing how plants speak to us through their preferred habitats, shape and form, color, aroma and taste. We will learn to identify plants by their characteristics, and to interpret what they are telling us about their virtues as foods, medicines, and more. Participants will learn valuable exercises and tools for experiencing nature in a deeper way.

Next, with our heightened awareness from experiencing the physical language of plants, we connect with plants at a deeper level, seeing them as the sentient beings they are, not as unconscious life forms that modern culture would have us believe. We encounter plants as living, breathing personalities, learning about plant societies, plant tribes and sacred plant elders. This deeper understanding of the plant world enables us to make and use plant medicines that work more profoundly on human physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels.

The Language of Connection In this class, we enter fully into the realm of the Subtle, or Intuitive, Language. Indigenous cultures speak of the One Language shared by all life, elements, and energies. The One Language is present all around us and within us, but we have forgotten how to access it.

This class investigates methods and tools – gifts each of us already possesses – that reconnect us with the One Language. Emphasis will be placed on direct “communing,” or “attuning” with the plants that call to us, to which we are drawn, and we will learn how to approach these plants in respectful, sacred ways. Participants are asked to bring notebooks, pens, colored pencils, even musical instruments, for plants speak to us and through us in many ways.

Cost $75. Please pre-register via email. Space limited.
