Kursinhalt


Saturday, August 26, Afternoon.  
Nature is Alive!  The Soul of Nature, The Wisdom of Nature, The Light of Nature.

Germany and the Rhineland have a long and very fine tradition of “Nature Wisdom,” tracing back to Paracelsus and Jakob Boehme.  People may not know that this tradition transferred to the United States and was perpetuated among the “Pennsylvania Dutch” (Deutsch) until the 1930s --- and has not yet completely died out.  Matthew had his own personal experience of the Living Nature when he was 11, and this has always been the leading inspiration for his teaching and life path, including herbal medicine.  Why study herbalism if we cannot reach back and touch the Living Nature?  This is our natural home, the home of our soul, Eden restored, where Mother Nature is alive.  “My experience is not unique (hope there are others in the class with this background) and is not impossible to teach and learn, but without vocabulary and the support of society and education it can be lost.”  This grand theme will be the keynote of our week, combining the tradition of Nature Wisdom taught by Paracelsus, similar themes from the teachings of the North American Indian people, worldwide shamanism, Rudolf Steiner, and thirty years of herbal practice, learning, and teaching. 

 
Sunday, August 27. Morning.
The Doctrine of Signatures. 

One of the first teachings of Nature Wisdom is that natural beings – plants, animals, and people – are all representative in their colors, shapes, scents, habits of growth, and habitat of the internal, spiritual qualities of the Living Nature (anima mundi), so that the traits of all of us are “signatures” of the Wisdom of Nature and God.  This is what the philosophers of Nature meant by Sophia (Wisdom).  Learning to perceive in this manner brings us closer to the Living Nature but also helps us understand, from their inner essence, the medicinal properties of herbs and how to apply them to animals and humans as medicines.  Nature does not waste anything, and therefore every shape, color, and scent is significant.  The old “doctrine of signatures” is valid, despite scientific animosity.  Form does equal function.  This helps us understand the plant as a whole, a view which is often missed when we only look at the pieces, the constituents.     
Afternoon. The Spirit Signatures. 
This is a Native American teaching.  "When the plant is used by the animal or looks like the animal, this is called a ’spirit signature.’  These signatures are particularly powerful and important” (Karyn Sanders, Choctaw).  Today we will talk about plants that “look like animals.”  In the medicine teachings of the American Indian people plants and medicine powers are classified by animal, as well as by natural phenomena.  The great animals are “archetypal” in story and in human life: Wolf, Bear, Lion or Cat, Dog, Bird, Eagle, Hawk, Water Bird, Fish, Buffalo, Elephant, Turtle, Snake, Lizard, Crocodile, Frog.  There are also natural powers: Sun, Moon, Cloud, Mist, Wind.  There are also a few universal mythological beings: Little People, Fish People, Underwater Panther, etc.  Many of these “medicine powers” are associated with plants and explain their properties.  They are also be associated with types of knowledge, clans or societies, families, and individuals.  “Indian stories,” or teachings of the “medicine animals” contain the stories about life itself. 
 
Monday, August 28. 
Medicine Animals, Medicine Plants.
 
There is a special reason why we want to learn about medicine animals and powers.  First, they teach us about the powers and lessons and stories in our environment, but even more importantly, each one of us is an animal.  We gain our consciousness from our human nature, but our sensory apparatus and instincts we have from our animal part.  Just as we see in the physical world via our animal senses, we need to learn to see in the spirit world, and this is also through animal senses.  However, in this case our senses are not open, are not developed, because we are unconscious of our animal self.  We need to dream of our animal self alter ego in order to gain our spirit eyes and ears.  This is the teaching of the shamans of all times and places; this is why the universal sign of the shaman is the half human/half animal.    
 
Tuesday, August 29.  Morning. 
The Importance of Personal Medicine Animals. 

In addition to more on the animal medicine and plant teachings we will learn about the animal self.  Each of us has our own personal animal spirit, which is the center of our “animal” way of looking at the world and our survival instincts.  We need to actualize and merge our human self with our animal self in order to become a complete person.  This opens up our dream self or spirit. This is why the symbol of the shaman is half human/half animal and why shamanism is associated with dreamtime.  When the animal self is actualized, the dream self also becomes actual because we gain “eyes and ears” in the dream world.  
Afternoon Herb Walk. 
In the afternoon we illustrate the doctrine of signatures with a walk in the herb garden in Saarland.  Students are invited to let their own imagination and intuition led them to discover new uses or better understand old uses of plants.  We will compare notes.
During the week we will take herb walks around the farm to learn, stretch our legs, and enjoy Nature.        
  
Wednesday, August 30, all day. 
Swanie Simon:  Herbalism for pets, Medicine making
 
Thursday, August 31, all day. 
Herbal Energetics and Herbal Materia Medica

It is important that we open up and train our intuition to see patterns.  In the herbal world this approach is known as “energetics.”  Nature changes and flows in simple patterns that we all recognize, such as hot and cold, damp and dry, light and dark, tense and relaxed, excess and deficiency.  The same is true for the body, and our health, and these are the same influences that plants must meet and survive.  Therefore, the plant has taken into the “poison,” the excess heat or cold, for instance, survived, and carried that power as a medicinal property.  We must learn to see patterns in Nature, the human body, and the plant properties.  Fortunately, the plant taste usually resembles the plant “energetic” properties.  In this class we will discuss the six tissue states (heat/excitation, cold/depression, dry/atrophy, damp/stagnation, tension and relaxation).   
 
Friday, September 1, all day. 
Pulse and Tongue Evaluation.
 
Using energetics and signatures to understand sickness and health.
 
Saturday, September 2, ending at noon.  The Medicine Path: Seven Herbs, Plants As Teachers. 
We will return to my first book, and my first teachings on the medicine path: the Seven Guideposts on the spiritual path and the Seven Herbs.
