One of the most prevalent approaches to healing
involves the use of "natural medicines" derived from herbs.
This program is designed to introduce the student to the theory
and use of herbs as a healing modality. It includes an introduction
to botany, herb preparation and study of Western, Chinese and Asian,
and Ayurvedic herbs.
Healing embraces a clinical strategy based on
the principle that Life, Nature, and the Great Spirit from which
they arise are fully present in all the tissues of the body, the
psyche, the spiritual heart, and the soul.
Master Herbalists employ clinical strategies
and methods, which support life force through encouragement of nourishment,
digestion, rest, and appropriate activity, identification of purpose,
connection with nature, and identification and removal of obstacles
to cure on all levels. A Master Herbalist avoids using methods,
which suppress or distort life processes and disease, while incorporating
all empirical observation, instinct and intuition.
After completion, the graduate will receive a
Diploma/Certificate of Completion. They may then start or continue
