The Gaia School of Healing’s sacred plant medicine courses from home!

 

A Year of Gaia

with Sage Maurer & Gaia School teachers

12 months of Sacred Plant Medicine Online

Based on Gaia’s Year One Sacred Plant Medicine Apprenticeship

Course begins April 1st, 2020

Every month we will send you lessons corresponding with each session of The Year One Sacred Plant Medicine Apprenticeship. This online course is an abridged version of our in person apprenticeship. Lessons will include simple rituals, plant medicine lectures, guided meditations, recipes, and plant walks that make up the roots of our practice at The Gaia School. Course content will be accessed through A Year of Gaia website. You will receive 5 - 10 videos every month, audio lecture, guided meditations, handouts, and written content. After 12 months you'll receive lifetime access to all course content. Our courses combine plant spirit medicine, traditional herbalism, ethnobotany, holistic medicine, earth based ceremony, and meditations with the healing spirits of the earth.

Throughout this course you will receive Sage's mentorship through videos, recordings, and written content each month, as well as an online community of others journeying with the plants. Current Gaia apprentices can take the online course to support their home practice and will receive lifetime access to all videos and content.
