Herbal Healing Mamas stop in here! - Page 11

well I have changed my mind and am taking the course at www.swsbm.com and also one with Susun Weed. After that I am going to do the NAIMH one and also yet another course through Anima! (I am a sucker for classes as I have several certificates already, not that they really mean anything officially though.)

I have several chances to start teaching soon so I want to fill my head with as much info as possible!

oh! that sounds like a lot of fun. i taught a community education class a while back on how to make salves. it was so much fun. and i got so much out of being able to show everyone a techinque that should belong to everyone. it really helped to condense my "lesson" down to "teach" the class to a friend frist. so she could ask any questions that might come up.
how are you planning on doing your class? i would love to hear more about it.

We just got 6" of snow yesterday (hadn't had any for over a month though) it is melting already and the birds are nesting even!

I am not teaching (yet). Just doing my SWSBM courses! I am also going to start a 3 year community herbalist program in May (super psyched for this one too!! weee!)

what do you use the gilead oil for?

I need to stock our herb (and tea) cupboard this next week. Mountain Rose here I come!

I also found this great site and come to find out it's owned by a friend of a friend! small world, right? www.terrafirmabotanicals.com

I also forgot to say I get to add to our landlords already lush gardens. We are going to grow tons of herbs! I can hardly wait I am so ecstatic! After trying to grow things in the desert for so long I am simply thrilled! (the weather is soooo good here for herb growing too) Hope to have alot of things to dry and prepare this summer and fall!

What is everyone planting this spring? I just got the Richters herb catalog and want to plant everything.

Spring IS coming! Saw my first patch of tiny baby nettles peeking thru yesterday while on a walk!

Just saw this interesting post,
Useful Herbs For Men

Some good info - I didn't know St. John's Wort was good for the prostate.

What herbs are you all looking forward to wildcrafting this spring?

HI all, I hope its alright to join this thread! I just started Rosemary Gladstar's Science & Art of Herbalism course and so far love it!!

I am planning to try to grow St Johns Wort this year along with Echinacea.

I already have comfrey, lavender, calendula, catnip, and mint growing!

I am stunned at how much I feel like I finally found my path in life!

nice to have you. how is her class? your doing the online one? i hear good things...
post #216 of 358
Yes, its actually a correspondence course. 10 lessons come in a binder and each lesson is pretty in depth. You have to do homework and send it in to her.

I really am enjoying it and am already learning a bunch more!

I am also thinking about attending the Woman's NE Herbal Conference in August.

I'm looking for herbal classes/conferences in the Carolinas. As close to Charlotte, NC as possible.

Any recommendations or online courses for beginners? Herbal schools?


Thanks, Pat

well, it would depend on your goals of course. are you looking to because or study as a naturalpathic doctor? or just some good people to learn from?
here is some good inforamtion in an easy to read format. although henriette doesnt include some people i would recommend she does include why NOT to go to a certain diploma mill http://www.henriettesherbal.com/faqs/medi-7.html

this course, wtih susan weed might be right up your alley http://www.herbshealing.com/Correspondence-Course.htm

or this one:
http://www.sagemountain.com/science-...herbalism.html

micheal moore is a well respected herbalist, he offers a correspondence course, or rather, he set up a very good school but has passed on, the education is still available. http://www.swsbm.com/homepage/

this one might be really your style too, the anima school is popular, and offers time in there sanctuary. http://www.animacenter.org/

this one is alot like a university, and offers connection with the herbalist guild
http://www.planetherbs.com/

sage mountain is another incredible one. rosemary gladstar (what a name!) is
the woman who runs it, this would be at the top of my list.
