L’Association des herboristes du Nouveau-Brunswick

Abrah Arneson has been practicing herbal medicine for 18 years. Abrah has worked in a hospice to support the dying, trained as a doula to hold women while they labor, travelled to all continents on this planet and spent a year in retreat in the Yukon wilderness. Abrah’s practice of herbal medicine has deepened her understanding of transformation from illness to health, from despair to hope and from disconnection to connection. Abrah is the author of The Weaving: Plants, Planets and People, The Vessel: Women, Plants and Contraception, The Herbal Apprentice: Plant Medicine and The Human Being and the Herbal Apprentice Workbook. She will soon release Grandmothers: Ancestors and Plants Medicine. She is passionate about sharing all that plants have taught her on her journey as herbalist.
