Wood, Matthew

This class will discuss herbal medicine as a discipline that shines forth from the inner soul of the Living Nature, a living vocation that helps us to attune to both the soul of Nature and the wisdom that is implicate in the natural world. The class will be based on a lifetime of personal experiences of the Living Nature and therefore it will be somewhat autobiographical. I would like members of the Guild and the herbal community in general to hear some of my story, a story which contributed greatly to the popularity of herbal medicine in Minnesota today. Once I was a young herbalist forging my path, now I am an elder looking back at it.
