Linden

The first in a series of online (recorded and ready), single plant classes with an emphasis on considerations for those of us with CPTSD, and/or long-held anxiety-depressive patterns. I geek out a bit on the mythos and weaving patterns of fluidity and flexibility Linden shines at.

This class is the first in a series of herb classes I am doing (online) specifically made for folks who have long term experiences along the anxiety-depression spectrum and/or identify as having CPTSD/complex trauma and are curious about plants/herbal medicine. I cover the ‘herbal medicine’ related topics, from a bit of phyto-chemistry and this plant’s interaction with physiology, some collected mythology and then a bit about some of how I think it interacts with/supports underlying patterns of rigidity that can creep up on us.

I’m especially appreciative of those who are nervous about, tentative or fearful of taking herbs and/or having their nervous systems manipulated too fast/too much. It’s one of the reasons I picked Linden to ease even myself into designing a little course like this. Linden can be a soft, gentle transition into working with herbs as its bit more forgiving and fluid than say motherwort or vervain or even lemon balm for those of us really sensitive to plants. It is mostly made as an herbal infusion which also gives us a lot of play room to get to know it as we can take one or two sips, sip slowly or guzzle. What ever feels good.

Introductions:

  • Sourcing Linden on the web/market and what to look for

  • Identifying Linden .pdf/post/brief video
