Today we’ll hear from Brighid Doherty of The Solidago School of Herbalism on her upcoming
online course, Nourish Yourself. This course teaches
you how to incorporate common herbs, in simple ways, into daily
life. Brighid inspires people to be more self-reliant in their
health and healing process, and she teaches the home herbalist how
to bring herbal medicine into their lives by relating to plants in
their bodies, kitchens, gardens, and the wild.
The next course starts October 6th and runs through mid-December.
Brighid Doherty is an herbalist honoring the Wise Woman
Tradition. She resides on Deer Isle, a bridged-island in Downeast
Maine. Brighid is a passionate herbal health educator and a
professional gardener. She is the founder of The Solidago School of
Herbalism. Brighid began her connection with herbs while playing in
her mother’s gardens as a child, their scents and beauty attracting
her curiosity. For the past two decades, Brighid has worked with
medicinal plants in a variety of ways; as a student and a teacher,
a gardener and a forager, a medicine maker and health consultant.
She received a BA focused in Organic Agriculture and Herbal
Medicine from Evergreen State College. She has had many wonderful
herbalist mentors including Susun Weed, Rosemary Gladstar, Katja
Swift, and KP Khalsa. She teaches a variety of workshops for the
home herbalist, including medicinal plant walks, herbal spas, an
Herbs for Health series, and hands-on medicine making. Brighid also
offers an online course, called Nourish Yourself.
