ElderMoon School's Mission...
ElderMoon School (EMS) is a place of learning on-line and in-person about the nature of plants as medicine carriers for healing and a gathering place of wise medicine carriers for our many on-line and in-person courses. This journey, be it on-line or in-person, will awaken in you a deeper connection to the cycles - the way of life - and hone within you a range of ancient and traditional skills and tools to serve yourself, families, communities and humanity. ElderMoon School of Herbs is based in New York and is dedicated to respecting one's choice in health care and providing wise herbal knowledge during a time where many are combining ancient with modern practices. I've walked 25 years with many great teachers in herbal medicine, though my original teachings come from Pam Montgomery. Included in this experience is 5 years as a homebirthing midwife assistant, 25 years as a community herbalist and apothecary creator and manager, along with training new herbalists through years of teaching. I jumped the tracks and became an RN and have worked in the home and hospital setting, including hospice work, as part of my modern medicine walk for 10 years as a critical care nurse in ICU, ER, OR and Cardiac/Stroke units. My passion is to bring this experience of 25 years together in a mission to provide for ways of healing that are based in Nature first through engaging the power of simple green plants for healing. This requires more than a 'take this for that' and 'come back when your symptoms are worse' mindset. Herbal medicine is a primary healthcare system rooted back in time. And it actually IS just that for many in the world today. Learning directly from the plants is the path. Beginning now, as you are, is the first step. Glad you dropped in for a bit. Welcome. -Jen
