Herbal Foundations Series


A Drop-In Series Introduction To Herbal Medicine

About the Course:
Through a series of lectures and supplemental labs, we will navigate our DIY, home herbal-medicine coursework. This series will introduce you to a multitude of ways to connect with the healing magic of herbs, while developing and deepening in foundational home-herbal know-how. You will walk away from this course with an understanding of how herbal medicine dances with the seasons and a foundational skill set to weave the abundant magic of plants into your life.

These classes can be taken as stand-alone workshops, although the material will certainly build on itself as we move through the program, so we recommenced attending as much of the series as you are able, to attain the full richness of the coursework.

1st Year Healing Craft Circle

Intuitive & Spiritual Development through Traditional Magic, the Ceremony of Elemental Magic & Earth Medicine
Offered By Ylva Mara Radziszewski
Select Tuesdays 7:00pm-9:30pm


- Registration for this class is now closed.  Online payment is available here for those who have already enrolled. -


About the Course:
This circle offers a safe and sacred container for your intuitive and spiritual development. Over the course of this year we will learn the foundations of The Healing Craft through the study and practice of Traditional Magic techniques and Earth Medicine healing practices. You will develop and deepen personal relationships with the Elements of Nature and the Healing Craft. 

Each class we will learn to apply these relationships to intuitive development and divination techniques, psychic protection, ecstatic journeying and faring forth, hands on healing, energy clearing, and daily personal practices. Throughout this year we will explore your individual cosmology and relationship to Source within the context of community. I encourage you to take what you learn in class and unravel it, question it, pull it apart and weave it into a cosmology that most resembles your walk.

Complete course details & calendar available on Ylva's website here.
