2017  Practitioner Intensive

2017  Teaching Schedule

Class Handouts

 I believe basic autonomous self-care to be a human right.  Because of this I try to provide inexpensive information about  entry level herbal self-care through classes in my community and on my blog.


Sometimes individuals feel called to pursue a deeper study of plants that helps them to feel competent as plant healers.  For those people I offer a yearly intensive program.

I am offering much of the classwork through interactive on-line options.  We will only be  meeting once a month for what I consider necessary hands on practice of some skills.  While not ideal, it is possible to take the class remotely.

I already have a few spots filled for the 2017 session, so please e-mail me at your earliest convenience to apply.  Due to what can only be termed a mess last year,  I will be requiring a $50 deposit to hold your spot, in order to limit responses t serious inquiries.

A successful interviewee will have some previous training in the biological sciences or herbal therapeutics.  I suggest that beginners start with one of my eight-week self-care sessions.
