For most people there is an essential question in their life. This question is their beacon during times of transformation. Some would even say this question is their karma. Abrah’s question is:
How can the intoxicating beauty of life co-exist with depth of suffering life can bring?
This question has led Abrah to work in hospice supporting the dying, train as doula to hold women in their labour, travel to all continents on this planet and spend a year in retreat in the Yukon wilderness. Abrah’s practice of herbal medicine began 17 years ago she graduated from Dominion Herbal College's 4 year Clinical Herbalist program and began her practice as a herbalist. Being a practicing herbalist has nourished Abrah's question and deepened her understanding of transformation from illness to health, from despair to hope and from disconnection to connection. Her experience with plant medicine has taught her many times that a single plant is much more than a remedy of a physical illness.
Abrah offers a three year apprenticeship in Clinical Herbal Medicine and is the author of three books: The Weaving: Plants, Planets and People; The Herbal Apprentice: Plant Medicine and The Human Being and the Herbal Apprentice Workbook.
Abrah currently runs a herbal clinic in Ottawa, Ontario and is available for distant consultation via Zoom.
