MEDICINAL PLANT WORKSHOPS
1. Practical Plant Medicines for Better Health
An interactive workshop about using plant medicines for better health and well-being. From the simplest preparations to the more complex, participants learn about the different ways therapeutic plants can be incorporated into a wellness strategy. We discuss how many types of preparations are made, like teas, tinctures, syrups, compresses, infused and essential oils, as well as the benefits of each. With this understanding it becomes easy to choose the right product or preparation for your needs. The workshop includes demonstrations and samples of local medicinal plants.
1 ½ – 2 hour workshop: $95
2. Medicinal Plants of Costa Rica
This is a Show-and-Tell workshop specifically about medicinal plants of Costa Rica. I bring in many samples of local plants with information on their traditional uses and therapeutic benefits. As well, we look at various preparations and finished products made from plants grown in my medicinal garden.
1 ½ – 2 hour workshop: $95
I have many years experience using medicinal plants for healing myself and others. My knowledge base comes from personal experience, ethnobotanical and medical anthropology studies in university, and self-directed research. As well I have attended workshops on Costa Rican medicinal plants given by Professor Luis Poveda (University of Costa Rica and Director of the National Herbarium) and Agustin Contreras, a noted researcher and promoter of natural medicine. I use my skills to prepare many different medicinal plant products for sale in the local markets. I also regularly present workshops on medicinal plants and holistic wellness to the international students at the Firestone Center for Restoration Ecology at Pitzer College, located in Baru.
