For over 10 years Spirit to Sole Connection has been building a “Tribe” of natural healers. I am honored to say that 96% of my graduated students have opened their own businesses or have advanced their own healing practices. In this course there have been chiropractors, doulas, nurses, psychologists, energy workers and more.
The Community Herbalist Certification Course is a 12 month course. In this course our focus of study will be on the abilities to guide our bodies in healing, with balanced nutrition, phytochemistry, and emotional well being. We will use many facets of spirituality works in the Native American Medicine Wheel methods of harvest, with honor and dignity, cherishing the Mother Earth, respecting the elements, and harvesting under the moon signs.
The class will study the symptoms of nutrient deficiency and how this may affect the bodily processes. You will explore how foods, herbs, vitamins and minerals can bring these deficiencies back into harmony. You’ll also learn about herbal formulation and how to prepare a formula designed for the individual and their particular needs.
The student will continue to build an herbal material journal of reference.
Each month the class will learn a system of the body, the common ailments associated with it. You will address the conditions that create disease and use things like food as medicine. There will be ancient, proven, plant preparations that nourish and support the spirit/mind/body complex. Each student will identify and explore specific solutions for men, women and children; and the best way to complement new-age pharmaceuticals.
Upon completion of the program; which includes homework, reading assignments, herbal samples, hands-on materials, and tests totaling approximately 160 hours, you will have hands-on knowledge to create basic remedies that nourish yourself, your family and your community.
Class meets the third Sunday of every month from March 2020-2021,
from 1:10pm-4:00pm online using Zoom.
