Sage Mountain Herbs & Earth Awareness, 2014

Welcome to Sage Mountain

Rosemary Gladstar & a Young Herbalist at Brietenbush Hot Springs

Welcome to Sage Mountain.  Founded by Rosemary Gladstar and family, Sage Mountain Retreat Center & Native Plant Preserve is one of New England’s foremost learning centers for herbs and earth awareness. Located on 500 wilderness acres in central Vermont, this beautiful piece of Earth Mother is a natural sanctuary and teaching site. There is an incredible assortment of wild herbs and flowers growing in habitats that vary from meadows, forest to swamp. Our wild neighbors include deer, bear, moose, beavers, bobcat, otters, fox and a wonderful variety of feathered folk that honor us with their presence. Our facilities are simple, rustic and comfortable and provide a relaxing and beautiful place for participants to learn.  

This marks our 27th year of offering programs at Sage Mountain.  Though we will be offering fewer programs this year on the Mountain, we have a busy year planned with two large herbal events ~ the International Herb Symposium & the New England Women’s Herbal Conference ~ as well as several Plant Lover’s Journey’s and a couple of our perennially favorite classes. Rosemary will be traveling and teaching at several other events as well.  We are also seeking new owners/stewards of Sage Mountain.  As we grow older (Rosemary turned 64 this year on 12-12-12!), we yearn to simplify, do less, and ‘be more’.  If your dream includes owning a beautiful mountain retreat and/or running a small retreat center, please contact us.   Not a ‘simple dream’, this will require a particular person or group of people with energy and financial resources, but its a fulfilling dream worth pursuing…..

The Foundations of Herbalism

with Rosemary Gladstar
August 6 ~ 10, 2014

 

Join Rosemary for this wonderful introduction into the world of herbalism.  This class will emphasize the foundations of herbalism and herbs for family health. There will be lots of hands on learning and activities, including making herbal products, learning to identify, harvest and prepare plants, creating a first aide kit, and learning how to use plants for health and healing…all taught in Rosemary’s joyful inspiring way with plants.

An ‘herb camp’ as much as an ‘herb school’, students learn more than seems possible in a few days time, while having a ‘ton of fun’, enjoying the relaxing atmosphere of Sage Mountain and the great company of other herb students.      

Registration Information: $695 includes all classes, materials, handouts, delicious vegetarian meals and lodging at Sage Mt (camping and limited indoor lodging available). For those staying/eating offsite the cost is $495.  A meal plan option is available also: please inquire.  A $200 non-refundable/non transferable deposit is required to hold your place.      

The Shaman’s Path

The Shaman’s Path

Rocio is a remarkable healer, shaman and teacher as well as a beautiful soulful person who has inspired hundreds of people with her healing work.   A native of Ecuador, Rocio shares ceremonies and healing traditions of the Amazon and the Andes.   In this workshop, we’ll learn special healing ceremonies using flowers, herbs, and oils.  How to use plants to remove negative energies. Learn how to ‘see & read’ health conditions in people and how to cleanse the body.   We never quite know what Rocio may teach or share, but it’s always amazing and magical.  Your time spent with her may very well transform your life! Rosemary will offer herb walks, plant meditations, and be here to serve in whatever ways she’s needed.
