Description: We are fortunate to have Phyllis Light, a 4th-generation herbalist, join us again this year in the upstate of SC! The Power of One: Simples and Taste. The traditional method of herb use in Southern and Appalachian Folk Medicine is the administration of herbal decoctions using Simples (single herbs). Our elders knew the power and wonder of knowing an herb intimately and using it in-depth. Join Phyllis for a history and rediscovery of the power of Simples as taken from her native tradition of Southern and Appalachian Folk Medicine. Herbs will be brewed and tasted during this class as we explore several native herbs and their simple uses. Together we’ll discover what that taste has to say about the medicinal properties of the plant and how the plant can be used. This is a hands-on, or rather, tongue-on, experiential class. You’ll be surprised how much information a simple taste can reveal. As part of this class, we’ll also have a plant walk around the property and discuss traditional Southern uses of local plants and their taste. This won’t be your typical plant walk. Sunday, May 22 – Looking at Assessment (Note: we’ll also have a taste testing today.) Tongue Assessment. Looking at the tongue is an easy and quick way to providing information that can be used in finding patterns of dysfunction. We’ll discuss the basics of tongue assessment using Southern Folk Medicine taste patterns. We’ll look view a powerpoint of various types of tongues. And then, we’ll look at each other’s tongue. Tongue assessment doesn’t just look for physical ailments and their tongue patterns but also mental/emotional imbalance and those patterns. You’ll be amazed how much you can tell about a person by looking at their tongue. Hands, Fingers and Nails Assessment. Signs gathered in a visual assessment of the hands, fingers and nails provide information about a person’s nutritional status and can also be helpful in finding the perfect herbal remedy for specific complaints. This class will cover signs of healthy hands, fingers and nails as well as common signs of health imbalance. Color, texture, lines, shape, moistness, and tone are just a few of the factors taken into account in this visual assessment class. This is an interesting and fun class and you’ll find that you are looking at everyone’s fingernails when you get home. Please take off all fingernail polish for this class. Face Assessment. This class will discuss ways that the face gives us information about the health of a person. We’ll look at face shape, skin color, placement of lines, and areas of the face that correspond to various body systems. This is an eye-opening but fun class. 10am-5pm. Cost is $240. Early Bird price is $225 if paid in full with cash or check April 1; otherwise, the $100 deposit is due April 1, and the $140 balance is due May 1. Registration details are on our website.

Description: Learning Objectives: Fire using the bow drill; build debris shelter; purify water; find food. For anyone who wants to learn wilderness living, this is the class to take! Learn the four essentials of survival in this 2-day, overnight class: how to create and find fire, shelter, water and food. Designed for experienced outdoorsmen and novices alike, this class will familiarize the student with the empowering skill of creating fire using friction — the most important skill to know in the wild! Location, location, location: What is true in the real estate business is also true for survival. Students are introduced to the shelter lesson portion where students will work as a team to construct a warm and dry debris hut. How long can you go without food or water? How do you find it? Is it safe to drink or eat? The purpose of the second day’s lesson is to familiarize students with methods of obtaining food and water in a wilderness environment. This course will familiarize you with harvesting food — from insects and small game to edible plants. No, you will not be eating insects, unless you want to, of course. Students will build a deadfall for small game and make fishing tackle using only the material found in nature. The class will be familiarized with identifying and sampling common edible plants that are abundant everywhere — even in your backyard! Finally, students will learn various ways to find and purify water: from natural sunshine to your own, self-made water filter. Students will keep the tools they make (deadfalls, fishing tackle, filters, etc.) and class handouts.
