Foundation Module 1. Intuitive Plant Communication 

 

Following Goethe's quest for "Nature's Holy Open Secret", we embark on his 7 step method that reveals the Inner Principle of how a living being manifests itself the way it does - we find ourselves in conversation with the Essential Nature of a plant. We see how the outer appearance is governed by an inner principle 'Idea' of the plant which leads to the revelation of their unique qualities of healing and beauty.

"To find yourself in the Infinite, you must first differentiate and then combine." Goethe

Module 2. Earth Element, Root Medicine, the Foundations of Medical Astrology & the Archetypal Forces of the Planet Saturn and their influences on Plants and People.

We look at the qualities of the Earth Element and the Planet Saturn, which parts of the body they govern as well as the medicinal plants which are ruled by Saturn.

You will receive and be able to taste directly one of these herbs to illustrate all the qualities of above and to share your impressions during the Q&A session to elucidate what constitutional type of person and which conditions could benefit from the Saturnine qualities of the herb.

Testimonials - what our on-line students say:

"I was so fortunate to complete a month of online learning with Maureen and Jose during our lockdown this year. We were not able to do the training live but I know how privileged I am to have joined the Herbal Path in such a unique and special way. I’m so lucky they were adaptable and made it possible. It was an experiment to see if it could be done but an experience that has transformed my relationship with plants and provided endless subject matter for my Art making. I enjoyed the format and being able to discover the local environment and feedback my findings was a really fun way to explore. Maureen’s knowledge is extensive and delivered with passion and enthusiasm. Our sessions were an hour long and I would often wish they were longer. I could listen to her for hours and hours. I love learning online while being comfortable in my home. An inspiring Woman and Teacher. My virtual apprenticeship was magical and will standout as this years highlight. I'm so grateful Maureen is providing online offerings it means I can continue my Herbal Path with her where ever I am. Thank you Maureen and Jose I’m looking forward to more and more and more..."

"Maureen is incredibly knowledgeable in so many different areas of the plant world along with life in general. I loved taking part of her wisdom. While she speaks and shares I feel as if she is manifesting, expressing and weaving the threads between the many different realms of life. From the very material, scientific and tangible to the more abstract areas beyond our consciousness. 

It was a real privilege to have Maureen's guidance during that one month over the internet. The plant study and the sessions/lessons were all such a beautiful experience. It is clear that she has spent a whole lot of time together with and in the study of plants, both in themselves and in relation to humans. 

I am wishing and looking forward to continuing my plant journey with Maureen as a guide and mentor."

“To see a world in a grain of sand.

And a heaven in a wild flower,

Hold infinity in the palm of your hand.

And eternity in an hour.”
