explore the healer inside yourself
Our courses are designed to teach herbalism and traditional healing practices from the ground up. We begin with foundational understandings of natural methodologies and progress through the many aspects of herbal healing, including herb identification, horticulture, medicinal usages, methods of preparation and more.

Become a Registered Herbalist

The foundation of traditional healing lies in the understanding of medicinal plants and herbs, and how they engage with the body on a physical and mental level. This journey is for everyone, from Mom knowing herbs to heal the family at home, or the health enthusiast planning on establishing a career in traditional healing.

Our training like with all traditional healing training processes, is established on a building block methodology. We first teach you how to identify the blocks you need to build with, and we help you get comfortable with the blocks and subsequently building and understanding of traditional healing holistically.

Holistic Health Practitioner

After you have completed the Medical Herbalist course, you qualify for the Holistic Health Practitioner (HHP) curriculum.
In HHP we will build on the absolute importance of the holistic understanding of medicinal plants and herbs on the body and how to enhance the plant and herbs with a deeper understanding of nutrition and subtle energy work.

We will dive deeper into energy work, divination and ancient herbs and plants to help us connect with the higher self and start our healing practice with a much better understanding of holistic health and how to employ the forces of nature and the body for ultimate and overall health and wellness.
