What you'll learn in this natural medicine class:

The use of special pouches or containers for healing on both the practical level and the spiritual/energetic levels have long been used cross culturally for as long as the concept of healing and medicine have existed in human history.

Sometimes in the form of talismans or amulets, a personal medicine bag, historically, might contain sacred objects that symbolize personal well-being and tribal identity. Traditionally, medicine bags are worn under the clothing. Their contents are private, secret, and are not intended for display.

Cultural appropriation is a serious, complex, and, oftentimes, a sensitive subject. As such, for this class, we are not drawing from any one particular culture, but rather we are drawing from a cross cultural collective typically shared by many or most known tribal lineages as well as some adaptations for the modern individual. 

The medicine pouch we will be making will be focused on utilitarian function as physical medicines for 1st aid or other immediate purposes as well as serving the essential purpose of facilitating the use of and connecting the bearer with the unseen and intangible aspects of healing.

We generally choose to use hand tanned buckskin leather from wild or certified organic animals to honor and include the Animal Medicine that plays a vitally important symbiosis with Plant Medicine. The leather used for this is made the traditional way and is truly and intensive labor of love and way of full circle living.  

Vegan options will also be available for our vegan and vegetarian friends.

Class is held outdoors in our beautiful local wilderness under the shade of trees and next to a gentle flowing stream. A plant walk consisting of a short and mild 1.5 mile stroll to connect with the Plant people will be included.

In this workshop, you will:
  • Craft your own medicine pouch from hand tanned organic buckskin leather (vegan option available)
  • Learn to identify wild, native plants medicinals
  • Utilize powerful cross cultural Shamanic practices to connect with the plant people
  • Apply the fundamentals of Plant medicine to formulate your own personalized medicine pouch
This class is part of the Plant Medicine Certification program. Individual modules may be taken separately, however certification is only awarded upon completion of all Plant Medicine Certification modules and a passing score on the exam.

Refund Policy
All fees are due before classes start. The $50 deposit reserves your space but does not secure the Early Bird pricing. 

A great deal of time and expense is invested into the preparation and organization of each class. It is difficult and oftentimes impossible to recover costs and/or find a student to replace a cancelled registrant and so our cancellation and refund policies reflect this.  

Full refunds, minus a $25 administrative fee for private healing sessions or under 4 hr classes, a $50 non-refundable deposit for 4+ hours classes, and $100 non-refundable deposit for over 4+ months programs, are given to registrants who cancel with at least 7 days notice prior to the event or beginning of the program. Cancellations made less than 7 days of the event or session forfeit a refund. However, we understand that emergencies and unforeseen circumstances do happen. As such we offer the courtesy of transferring your tuition to a different class within six months of the originally scheduled class with a $15 administrative fee for single day classes and a $30 fee for multi-day classes and sessions. Cancellations made less than 24 hrs before a class or healing session forfeit a refund and cannot be rescheduled. Short notice cancellations and no-shows do not give time enough to offer the place to someone on the waiting list, so the fees paid cannot be refunded or transferred. For physical products purchased from our store we can issue full refunds if returned in their original form within 30 days of purchase. Shipping costs are non-refundable. All digital access/deliveries are final. 

A class or session can only be rescheduled a maximum of 2 times, after that, the tuition is forfeit. The maximum number of late notice cancellations from a student (even if for different classes) is 3 times. After that, I understand I am not that student’s teacher. In order to create a comfortable and safe learning environment for all students, REIKI Wellbeing reserves the right to dismiss any student that exhibits any inappropriate behavior or tendencies disruptive to the training. 

If you are unable to attend because of financial challenges please contact CourseHorse before the class start date to discuss options and find a way to make it happen.
