We are pleased to have the opportunity to offer you a special course this summer:
The Wisdom of Nature with Matthew Wood
Aug. 26 - Sept 02, 2017
Matthew Wood was born in 1954. He spent the first two years of his life on a remote Indian reservation in the Florida Everglades. Although he does not speak Muskogee he does not consider English to be his first language. He had a great deal of trouble learning to translate his thoughts into English. The study of astrology gave him a vocabulary with which to express his thoughts, which followed intuitive patterns rather than cause-and-effect rationalism. He had his first experience of the 'living Nature' at age 10, while attending First Day School at the Northern Half Yearly Meeting of Friends in Wausaw, Wisconsin. He was raised a Quaker and has been a student of Nature Wisdom since he was 13 years old.
From the age of 2 onwards Matthew was raised in Minneapolis, where he attended public school and the University of Minnesota. He graduated with a BA, major in history, in 1986. Matthew began practicing herbalism at Present Moment Herbs and Books in 1982. He has been in private practice since 1990. "I remember what it was like before our field was invaded by all these know-it-all scientists and doctors who have never used herbs began to tell us how herbs worked. That was before the very fabric of herbalism was warped by modern commerce." In 2003 he completed a Master's Degree in Herbal Medicine at the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine, accredited by the University of Wales, one of the largest accrediting bodies in the world.
From 1992-2005 Matthew lived at Sunnyfield Herb Farm in Minnetrista, Minnesota, seventeen acres dedicated to herbs and herbal teaching. He now lives in the tiny burg of Martell, Wisconsin, across from the Rush River, in a 157 year old log cabin.
Matthew Wood is the author of six books on herbal medicine and is a professional member of the American Herbalists Guild.
