Mother Earth is rich with the bounty of healing herbs!

Long used in every culture throughout the world, plant wisdom has long been used to treat physical, emotional, and mental concerns.  The magic of the healing art through plants has waxed and waned, but its tradition lives on through modern support persons interested in carrying forth their power and importance.

During this course you will learn how to support the reproductive journey from adolescence to post menopause through the power of plants.

Plant power for the win!

“Healing is a matter of time, but it is also sometimes a matter of opportunity.”

~ Hippocrate, herbalist and considered founder of modern medicine
