Ayurveda <> Herbalism <> Astrology
Part school, part study group, part personal development. An 8 month journey reconnecting you to the earth, the elements, and to your authentic spirit. Join us as we learn with the earth, reconnect back to the deeper Self, and explore holistic herbalism through Ayurveda and Astrology.
Taking place on our Organic Herb Farm in River Falls, Wisconsin (a 45 minute drive from Saint Paul/Minneapolis) you’ll be immersed in fields of medicinal plants, clean air, rich soil, and like minded community. For brand new and experienced herbalists alike, this course is designed to use and develop your senses and intuition to understand plants and spirit in a whole new way.
Having been in the design phase for over 5 years and with 10 years of research and development, this course brings together holistic modalities taught through various learning styles. Herbalism, Ayurveda, Astrology, Mindfulness, and Earth Awareness taught through hands on experimental learning, lectures, social engagement, and solitary reflection. Starting in the spring and continuing through the growing and harvest season, participants will learn and explore with the changing of the season and the blossoming of the farm.

What to Expect
This is not a clinical herbalism program. If you are interested in opening a practice and seeing clients, send us an email and we will connect you with a handful of local programs. Instead, this course is about developing the holistic practitioner- helping to shape the way in which you perceive and experience plants, nature, and humans alike. Think of it as a self development course through plants.
You will not be memorizing a list of herbs and their medicinal uses. Instead, we will practice using the senses and intuition in order to perceive the energetic properties of plants and phenomena. Our goal is that by the end of the course, you will be well on your way to being able to understand (without having to use external resources) the energetic pattern of any plant or person. By greater understanding the energetics, patterns, and elements around us, we can understand balance and imbalance, harmony and disease, in a deep and real way.
This is not a passive learning, sit back and be taught course. It will require your active engagement and participation. You will asked to do personal reflection, connect with classmates both one-on-one and in a group, and share in front of the class. Though there is a ton of material to go through, you will be processing that material in real life with your fellow classmates.

Coronavirus: We are dedicated to creating a safe container for learning and exploration. We are keeping our enrollment sizes small not only in response to the coronavirus, but also because we want to create a safe and emotionally intimate space to connect and grow together as a community. Most classes will be held entirely outside (dress for the weather) and we will be following safety regulations when indoors or in close proximity.
