Our Herbalism Program offers courses for those interested in exploring herbalism; for those wishing to gather the untitled-19information to care for their families naturally; and for those wishing to pursue herbalism in a professional setting.

The health of our planet, of our communities, and of our bodies are inextricably connected. At FSHL, we approach Herbalism from an ecological perspective, cultivating a sustainable practice that focuses on medicinal plants of our bioregion. We study Western Herbalism with an emphasis on traditions indigenous to this continent, and look to eastern traditions, such as Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine, to deepen our study. We believe in a hands-on approach to learning, and work with the plants themselves, dried herbs, and herbal preparations to build our knowledge. We explore Herbalism holistically, recognizing that nutrition, exercise, stress management, and other holistic modalities offer us a full experience of health. We encourage our students to integrate their study into a personal practice, so they can benefit daily and master the material through first-hand experience.

 

Our Roots of Herbalism course is an immersive introduction that introduces herbalism to both experienced and lay people alike. It is an excellent course for those wishing to gain a comprehensive introduction to herbalism, and empowers students with the knowledge, tools, and experience to continue their journey to natural, radiant wellbeing. It is offered as a weekend intensive, or a home study course featuring a full-length DVD, course book, and herbal materials.
