Shana Lipner Grover: Unsung Herbal Heroes of Immunity
Anti-infective superstars take center stage while other, subtler (but just as important) aspects of self-care and herbal medicine are laying the framework of our defenses. We will look at the bigger picture of immunity. How our mucosal membranes and our lymphatic system play vital roles in the immune system’s maintenance and effectiveness.
Steven Yeager & Howie Brounstein: I Hope That’s Valerian I Smell
Steven and Howie will banter and blooper an overview of Valerian, Valeriana sp., including such topics as the botany, ecology, and uses of this well-known aromatic plant. As usual, the teaching style will include case histories, personal experiences, and a liberal sprinkling of humor.
Erika Galentin, MNIMH, RH (AHG): Aroma, Psyche, and Body: Creating New Narratives
Join Erika Galentin for an exploration of aromatic plants as useful tools for supporting our minds and bodies on our journeys to wellness. We will take a brief tour of the inner workings of our sense of smell, how aromas are perceived, and their influence on our memories and emotions. This will be followed by a discussion on how emotions such as grief and shame can have significant impacts on how our bodies function. We will also explore how we can use aroma from plants to create new emotions and memories through the power of the myths, metaphors, and stories they can carry to the psyche.
