2nd Level Herbal Apprenticeship DEPOSIT


The Second Level Advanced Training Program has two components: Intensives with prominent visiting herbalists Phyllis Light, Master Herbalist and Director of the Appalachian Center for Natural Health, and Tammi Sweet, Co-director of Heartstone Herbal Center and celebrated teacher of anatomy and physiology, and with faculty members Tommy Priester and Madelon Hope. The three weekends include extensive materia medica, case histories and stories from herbal practice. The focus will be on how to get to the root cause of physical complaints. The classes cover advanced anatomy and physiology and the inter-relationship among body systems. This year we are focusing on the liver and gall bladder, the endocrine, immune and nervous systems along with the Endogenous Cannabinoid System and pain pathways. 

Our second component involves an Immersion in the Plant World. In the Spring, Karina Hines; Herbal Educator and Professional Natural Chef, and Natalie DeNormandie, Ecological Herbalist and Landscape Architect teach about foraging, deep botany and ecology, enhanced growing techniques and the alchemy of cooking with medicinal plants. In the fall, Marianne Fritz and Karina Hines focus on Medicinal Mushrooms; cultivation, materia medica, preparation and usage.
