About the Courses

 

The Green Path is the way of naturalists, herbalists, wise women, wise men and all who have a working knowledge of the world of plants.  In the days gone by, these individuals would have been called the cunning folk or Green Witches as an acknowledgement of their healing skills and plant knowledge. All practiced the art of living in harmony with the Earth. 

 

It is the intention of these courses to teach you the basic skills of becoming a healer for you, your family and friends. There seems to be a general consensus for us get back to the earth and become more self suffiicent, and these skill sets are essential! Besides being a whole lot of fun!.

 

These courses are for everyone who has an interest in healing work.  We will learn the herbs through our senses and direct application instead of memorizing pages and pages of text.   You will use your senses to determine how the herbs work by tasting them and feeling how they feel in your body. 

You only need a desire to learn to work with nature to take these courses.  These courses will not to teach you the vocation of herbalist but instead you will become proficent as a Home Healer.

 

All the courses are stand alone and can be taken individually.  However, all of these courses have been designed to dove tail together to make a comprehensive Home Healer Series. If one took all of the of the courses you would be a fully educated, hands on Home Healer able to competently help your friends and family with the lumps and bumps of daily life.  As well as having made a fully stocked Apothecary with your own two hands.   

 

Foundation Course -Language of Plants

The Language of Plants is a foundational course that guides you through your senses to learn about plants in a more profound way! Reading about and memorizing medicinal properties can only give you the knowledge; this course offers old-time wisdom through practical hands-on experience. 

 

A sensory adventure of taste, touch, smell and sight, the Language of Plants invites you on a journey into the ways and wonders of the plant kingdom. To fully understand an herb and its healing potential is to observe and translate its unique language fully; you might call it the decoding of nature herself. 

 

The Language of Plants is an evergreen course, meaning you can take it all year round and complete it at your leisure.  Even though it is a self-directed course, I am always available for questions, comments, and to check your quizzes as you proceed. I look forward to seeing you in class!

Salves & Balms

Salves & Balms is a fun 'stand-alone' course for beginner Green Witches as well as for the seasoned ones and a great way to start working with herbs!

Each salve has at least two formulas and in some cases an essential oil formula will be included.
