Mentorship in Herbalism

As of 2015, I am no longer offering an herbal mentorship. I will instead be focusing on the Flower Essence Practitioner Training.

This program is designed to introduce the student to the basics of herbal medicine. At the end of the program the student will know how to safely and respectfully wildcraft, grow, and preserve the herbal harvest. They will understand the basic functions of the systems of the body. They will be capable of using personally prepared herbal medicines to improve health and heal common ailments. They will be prepared to continue learning new herbal skills and build upon a strong foundation of herbal knowledge.

The 2014 program will meet from 9am to 4pm, on 16 Mondays from March 10th through October 20th. (March 10 and 24, April 7 and 21, May 5 and 19, June 16 and 30, July 14 and 28, August 11 and 25, September 8 and 22, October 6 and 20) . There will be 112 total hours of instruction (16 meetings of 7 hours/meeting). While a schedule will be set, both instructor and students must maintain some flexibility as unforeseen circumstances may arise during such a lengthy commitment. Some dates may need to be changed, some adjustments may need to be made.

Students will receive handouts, approximately 350-400 pages which come together to form an organized manual for continued reference. They will receive a suggested reading list. They will have access to Lichenwood Herbals library and will be able to borrow some books, cdís, dvdís, cassette tapes, and VHS tapes.

During class students will make tinctures, infused oils, herbal vinegars and tonics, herbal syrups, capsules, lozenges, salves, creams and lotions, teas, compresses, poultices, and other products. Students may be responsible for purchasing some materials and will receive a list of items to be purchased at least one week prior to class. However, almost all materials are supplied to you by the instructor.

Students will create an indexed Materia Medica which will be kept in a three ring binder. Students will learn to identify plants in the garden and in the wild, and will learn the natural flow of planting, harvesting, and storing plant medicines.

Successful completion of the class will include presenting the Materia Medica for review, and once the approved Materia Medica has been returned, completing a take home exam which reviews key elements of the material. A score of 90% must be achieved to earn a certification. Failure to achieve a score of 90% will result in the assignment of a short essay/research project centered on the area of weakness. A certification can be issued once this research project is submitted and approved by the instructor. There is no legal requirement for the certification or registration of herbalists at this time. Cost of this program is $1250. A $250 deposit holds your place and is due upon registration. Payment is expected in advance of the first class, or you may pay the $250 deposit prior to February 28th, followed by a $100 minimum payment at each subsequent class from March 10th through July 14th.PayPal, check, cash or money order are all accepted. Please email for more information and to arrange a pre-admission interview. This program is designed for a small number of students and is suitable for those just beginning their herbal studies and for students who want to build upon past classes and apprenticeships.
