Finding an in-person herbal program can be tough. I know! When I started taking herbal courses, I looked for a program that included everything I needed in order to understand the basics of herbalism from a holistic perspective AND preferably one I could attend in-person since I’m a hands-on, interactive learner.
My next option was to find an online program that had definitive start date that I could take with other students at set dates and times.
Sadly I wasn’t able to find what I was looking for, but I’m not one to give up on my dreams, so I ended up taking a self-paced program.
It wasn’t easy! I worked hard to keep myself focused and moving forward. Sometimes I felt like the only herbal student out there and it was lonely.
So many situations came up in life that made it difficult to keep on task; some days it was sheer will power that kept me going, and on those days I had no deadlines nor other students to help keep me motivated.
That is what spurred me on to start an in-person program in 2018.
In 2020 our focus was on growing our online program – many people prefer or need to have a more flexible schedule and want to learn on their own time, that program is PERFECT for them (you can find that here) but for those of you who are like me, we’re offering the live class again.
Because we want to accommodate as many students as possible, we decided to add Zoom as an option as well. This way, if you want to follow along while taking class in your pajamas, you can!
You’ll still follow the set out schedule, interact with the class, ask questions, and learn in real time.
This program will follow the same basic format as our online program so all 18 sessions are covered. PDF handouts and quizzes will be available for you to access online before we meet in order to maximize class time.
We are excited to be starting this program again and can’t wait to meet our newest students!!
**If you are currently enrolled in the online Fundamentals program (for less than 12 months) and wish to apply the tuition you’ve paid thus far to the live program, please contact us. If you have been enrolled longer than 12 months we will not apply more than 1/2 of your tuition toward the live program, the exact amount will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
Are you wanting to explore a way to reduce your tuition? – refer another student to the program joining with a friend is always a great way to spread the herbal love and optimize your learning. If your friend enrolls, you will receive a $100 discount to the program (this only applies to the live Fundamentals program not to online programs – in that case you need to apply to become an affiliate)
Our mission is to show you how to incorporate herbs into your life to achieve health and vitality using a holistic approach.
This is a live, in-person or Zoom hybrid program. This means you also have access to the content online in order to provide you more value and easy access to your course curriculum and instructors
If you recruit other students into the program (we highly encourage joining with a friend) you’ll get $100 off your tuition for each person who enrolls in either the in-person or the live Zoom class. At any time you can choose to apply that to another student’s tuition.
