Join us for an immersive Sound Journey Lead by Melanie Meherin

A sound bath is a deeply immersive, full body listening experience. You simply lay down or sit in a comfortable position and let the sounds wash over you. Your brain waves begin to slow, luring you into a deep state of relaxation, reduced stress, and rejuvenation. An ideal setting for natural healing to begin in the body and mind.

This magical event is appropriate for all levels. We are here to guide you and create a safe and welcoming environment for all!

Participants should dress cozy and bring mats or blankets to lie on. Pillows and eye masks are always welcome for ultimate comfort.

The Briar Patch is happy to offer two ways to shop!


Join us for in-person shopping in our truly unique showroom on Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm to 5pm.



Email us your herb, spice, and tea orders - pick them up on Sundays or have us mail them.

Sheri Copans

An avid interest in hunting mushrooms sparked my enthusiasm for the plants. The more time that I spent in the forest seeking mushrooms the more my attention was also taken by the wonderful plants and trees with whom we are so lucky to share a home in the Pacific Northwest. As my understanding and connection with plants grew, my path became clear. I was to share my love for the plants with the people who needed to meet them.

I began studying in earnest in 2009, attending The Elderberry School of Botanical Medicine in Portland, Oregon. The following year I spent days and weeks at a time in the forest meditating and learning directly from the plants while attending The School of Forest Medicine.

From 2011 through the spring of 2013 it was my great fortune to study herbal medicine with Cascade Anderson Geller, an internationally renowned herbalist, educator and environmentalist. Cascade fine tuned my thinking about plants with a focus on their needs as well the needs of the people they could help.

In 2012, I began working as assistant manager at Clary Sage Herbarium. This opportunity further honed my skills in working with people who wanted to use plants as medicine. After five years and the support of the owner Laurie Books, my dear friend and mentor, I felt the time was right to open my own shop. Briar Patch Herbs opened its’ doors to the community on May 1, 2018. It is my sincere hope that you will find this space to be a calming and grounding place to meet and further your friendship with the plants.
