Craft Herbalism is a revival of the ancient synthesis between the magical and medicinal. A modern homage to the ways of traditional spiritual plant work, with eyes and hearts wide open, forged empowered relationships with the natural world to effect needed change in the bodies, minds, and spirits of those they served.
At the line between the organized village and the wild forest, the analytical heights and the intuitive depths, the spell and the prescription, we find the timeless tradition of Craft Herbalism awakening for the good of all.
Through the School of Craft Herbalism, explore a living magico-medicinal tradition that is both a practice of wild, mystical spirituality and compass-grounded plant medicine expressed through the traditional ways of apprenticeship.
This is the only program of its kind in the world; with a focus on deep spiritual herbalism through the lens of ancient and modern Pagan and Animist embodiment presented in an initiatory manner. Josh's unique style of Elemental medicine brings together the wisdom of plant actions, energetics, virtues, formulation, and harmomnization to create a powerful expression of the work.
Our program consists of three paths; each building upon the one before it. We begin with a 9-week immersion into the language of elemental & energetic plant medicine, medicine making, body systems, herbal protocols, and immersive experiences with many plant allies. Path One should be considered an introductory foundation to the more intensive work that follows. The next two courses are advanced material and cover the more spiritual and magico-ritual applications of plant spirit work and are open only to those who have completed Path One successfully. The information in these advanced courses comes from Josh's Green Arte tradition of Craft as well as plant spirit sorcery work.
