For over 10 years Spirit to Sole Connection has been building a “Tribe” of natural healers. I am honored to say that 96% of my graduated students have opened their own businesses or have advanced their own healing practices. In this course there have been chiropractors, doulas, nurses, psychologists, energy workers and more.
The Community Herbalist Certification Course is a 12 month course. In this course our focus of study will be on the abilities to guide our bodies in healing, with balanced nutrition, phytochemistry, and emotional well being. We will use many facets of spirituality works in the Native American Medicine Wheel methods of harvest, with honor and dignity, cherishing the Mother Earth, respecting the elements, and harvesting under the moon signs.
The class will study the symptoms of nutrient deficiency and how this may affect the bodily processes. You will explore how foods, herbs, vitamins and minerals can bring these deficiencies back into harmony. You’ll also learn about herbal formulation and how to prepare a formula designed for the individual and their particular needs.
The student will continue to build an herbal material journal primarily focused on the medicinal herbs of New Jersey, the Pine Barrens and Eastern Pennsylvania.
You will learn:
· The history of plant medicines from Western and Eastern perspectives
· Plant constitution and properties
· How to formulate remedies and choose herbs based on their healing properties
· How to gather herbs that honor the plant, the Earth and their potency
· How to make tinctures, teas, salves, lotions, oils, herbal sprays, flower essences and more
· How to identify the underlying condition that is out of balance
· Actual case studies
· Seasonal tonics and lifestyle choices that support healthy and create balance with Nature
· Plant identification based on herbal walks
· How to create healing allies with plants
Each month the class will learn a system of the body, the common ailments associated with it. You will address the conditions that create disease and use things like food as medicine. There will be ancient, proven, plant preparations that nourish and support the spirit/mind/body complex. Each student will identify and explore specific solutions for men, women and children; and the best way to complement new-age pharmaceuticals.
