Event description

Description

For thousands of years, we’ve had a visceral kinship between healing and timing; nature and the cosmos; the plants and the people. Join community herbalist and astrologer JP Hawthorne as we discuss the significations and principles of the planets in medical astrology through our sense of taste and smell, including sampling handcrafted planetary tea blends. We will plot our natal charts onto body maps to better understand the principles of physical astrology and learn about the theory of sympathy and antipathy to begin applying these principles to our lives. Please come with a copy of your birth chart, or provide details with purchase of the class.



Biography:


JP is a queer astrologer, magically trained community herbalist, founder/teacher at the Portland School of Astrology. Raised in a racially integrated family in an urban Detroit suburb, he was fascinated by both the plants pushing through sidewalk cracks and by the language and infinite possibilities that the stars seemed to hold. Beginning his journey with astro in 1995, he later wedded the two disciplines and began seeing clients in 2011. In 2013, he founded the community-focused Portland School of Astrology with a focus on anti-oppression--which sees hundreds of students a year. His work with Cosmophilia connects people with both earth and sky, including a line of Astrological Herbals: planetary teas, tinctures, elixirs, sprays and Plants Against the Patriarchy vibrational essences. JP has completed 2 years of herbal medicine school, 3 years of herbal retail, 5 years at the Blue Iris Mystery School, holds a degree in Public Health and even attended university in Sapporo, Japan. He currently sees clients and teaches out of his Portland office, and is writing a book about Astro Herbalism titled BioCosmophilia: the Confluence of Plants, Planets and People. His work has been featured at Portland Art Museum, Portland State University, Reed College, Nike, Marriott Hotels, XRAY.fm, several astrology and herbal medicine conferences, numerous venues and websites. www.Cosmophilia.us | www.PortlandAstrology.org
