The Sonoma County Herb Association/Exchange
is excited to announce our new monthly education series
Herbal Traditions From Around the World
with this in mind, we are pleased to announce the first in the series:
Energy Clearing with Plant Medicines
a discussion with Jennifer Heminger
Online zoom class
A fundraiser for SCHA/SCHE
We’ll continue the conversation we began in 2019 during the Sacred Smudge course offered through the SCHE. Whether you attended that talk or not, there will be something here for you. Topics for discussion will include a variety of Plant Medicines with cultural representation, discussion on appropriation and ethical use including cultivation vs. wild-harvesting, and ways to develop or deepen your relationship to the incredible plants called for these sacred purposes.
Jennifer Heminger graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in English, with a specific study in culture + folklore before life careened her into a path in the alternative wellness field around 15 years ago. After focusing on building her wellness career as a practicing massage therapist, yoga instructor, and herbalist for over a decade, including owning two studios in Napa she stepped back to recalibrate in 2018. After some travel and several new trainings, she’s emerging now with some new skills in presence coaching, while parlaying her early adult education in writing to her work in energy healing + cultivating plant medicines. Filling her days working on a book project, focusing on helping others cultivate their own connection to the plants, and continuing her own education (always), she enjoys a relatively simple life in Mt. Shasta. Her varied offerings all have one thing in common: a sense of coming home to the heart.
