with Christina Bertelli
Vitalist Herbology is a healing strategy based on the principle that the physical body is animated by a vital life force energy. The Vitalist philosophy is found throughout many traditional medicine lineages. Other names for this vital energy are qi or prana, and a variety of methods have been created to open its flow and raise its charge. The clinical philosophy is that by building the vital force, a being has its own capacity to heal and revive itself more than any substances given. We will explore the western herbalist point of view of Vitalism which includes employing practices, herbs and nutrition to support the life power in the body, the psyche, the spiritual heart, and soul.
This class will give you a new view of your body and provide you with simple ways you can cultivate energy and vigor holistically in your body and mind. Vitalism helps you live in a way that does not distort or suppress life processes and teaches you to source even more energy from Life.
