This in-depth herbal training program will explore the relationship between mind, body, emotions, plant medicine, and the innate vital force that awakens the body’s own healing capacity.
Through both theoretical and practical hands-on study, this program will provide the enthusiastic student with an opportunity to develop an intimate relationship with herbs in our bio-region. We will learn how local plants can help prevent disease, support healing of an acute illness, and nourish long-term health and vitality.

We will dive into the ancient history of herbalism, explore anatomy and physiology from both the current biomedical model and traditional eastern medical perspectives, and formulate nourishing potent medicines.

Curriculum Includes:

  • Constitutional plant medicine

  • The Energetics of Herbs

  • Herbal Actions

  • Holistic Anatomy for the Herbalist

  • Interpreting the language of illness

  • Skillful medicine making

  • Crafting Formulations

  • Flower essences

  • Herb walks & plant identification

  • A focus on bio-regional herbs

  • Nutrition as a nurturing practice

Students will complete the course feeling firmly rooted in the understanding of how herbs work; feel confident in their medicine-making skills, confident in their ability to treat oneself and loved ones successfully with herbs, and deeply inspired by the natural world!

Tuition: $1600 or $1500 before September 1, 2014.
