Our program is based in tradition. This means we work to create an established flow of energy that inspires both teacher and student along the way. The program is completely unique in that it blends both the ancient magico-spiritual and medicinal aspects of herbalism into one harmonious flow. We call this tradition Craft Herbalism due to its deep to roots in visionary craft. While we learn about one body system and the herbs that influence it towards wellness, we also explore the metaphysical energies of that system and the herbs that work magic for it. We are the only full herb school in Utah and the only complete program of Spiritual Herbalism in the world.
The student will be equipped with a deepening of intuition and a confidence in practicing intuitive herbal medicine rooted in solid constitutional and clinical herbal modalities. Our tradition is rooted and nourished by the four primordial elements and focuses on a sacred compass model for assessment of imbalance, healing actions, and herbal medicine.
What You'll Learn
We learn by immersive experience- by doing. While there are plenty of 'talky' days, most of our sessions involve rolling up sleeves and making magical medicines. Our goal is to equip each person who comes through with the wisdom, experience, and inspiration it takes to practice herbalism above and beyond the standard.
What To Expect
We meet every-other-week on Sundays, usually in the late afternoons (3pm-7pm), occasionally in the mornings. We generally meet for 26 four-hour sessions within a 12 month period. Between sessions and projects the program averages at 200 hours of condensed, immersive education. Each stream is limited to 9 students and gives you access to instructor, peers, and teacher's assistant for most sessions. You'll also receive a 10% discount on anything at the Greenthread Herbs shop during your enrollment.
Our sessions are fast-paced and hands-on. We cover a lot of ground and then have two weeks to process, digest, and work on supportive projects before we meet again.
Students who are brand new to spiritual herbalism and those with a solid understand of any school of herbal practice are both suited and welcome to attend. Projects, readings, and other assignments generally take 3-4 hours per week.
Upon successful completion of the course and all required projects, you will be awarded a certificate of completion, a letter of recommendation intended for your application to the American Herbalists Guild (if you so desire), access to deeper initiatory-level craft training, and access to teaching and working opportunities as available if you’re interested.
