Growing Medicinal Plants

Growing Medicinal Plants

Become more self-reliant and resilient by taking back our ancient wisdom and bringing healing into your own hands.

Trainer Taj Scicluna contends that our society has become disconnected from the ability to heal ourselves and contribute to our overall health by the ways of preventative, precautionary and nourishing medicine.

Two thirds of pharmaceuticals are still derived from plant sources today, and in this workshop Taj will support you to become more self-reliant and resilient by taking back our ancient wisdom and bringing healing into your own hands.

By the end of the session, you will have more of a firm grasp on how you can start to build medicinal resilience in your own backyard.

On the day you’ll:

  • Be shown what healing plants actually look like
  • Develop an intuitive approach to health and wellbeing
  • Combined intuitive with the theoretic and scientific
Meet your trainer
