Mentorships at Sacred Tree
Learn at your own pace
Learn Herbal Medicine One on One
Mentorships at Sacred Tree Herbals
Hello and thank you for your interest in the plants! Plant medicine is amazing and I am so happy you are delving into this topic so vitally important! Empowering yourself with your health as well as gaining knowledge of plant medicine to help those around you creates a shift of balance toward stewardship of the earth and all she provides. To know is to protect and she can use all she can get! Mentorships at Sacred Tree are a bit different than the 7-month Apprenticeship offered annually. Mentorships are exclusive one on one time with me at the shop, or in the fields and forest harvesting and talking about the plants. Each day with me will vary as to the topics, the plants, the formulations and product making that comes up. Below is a basic list of skills you will acquire and topics we will discuss in regards to plant medicine and product making.
The breakdown of the mentorships is as follows:
Each session will include:
One on one training
Start to build your Materia Medica
Learn basic herbal preparations
Hands on learning
Learn how to identify plants
Learn the plants in the region and how to use them as medicine and food
How to wild forage
Learn targeted herbal preparations for system imbalances
Learn about Herbal Energetics and how to formulate based upon this concept
6 Session: 6 full days of learning plant medicine with me in the shop and out in the fields and forests foraging and identifying plants. $ 720
12 Sessions: 12 full days of learning plant medicine with me in the shop and out in the fields and forests foraging and identifying plants. $1440
18 Sessions: 18 full days of learning plant medicine with me in the shop and out in the fields and forests foraging and identifying plants. $2160
You are required to be present for the whole day for each session. Each session will be scheduled at mine and your convenience and will be here at the shop in Meredith, or at my land in Belmont. All topics listed will not necessarily be covered each day. I will require homework during the time we are not together. This mentorship will require you to do some research on your own to be discussed with me during our next time together. There is no set homework topic list as these topics come up as we go. The topics will vary, but follow a basic guideline of body systems and common imbalances of these systems.
Extended Herbal Training
Form a deeper understanding of plant medicine and clinical intake skills
These two class series are for herbal practitioners seeking to hone their skills at intake, learn more about phytochemicals and plant constituents and what they do in the body and how to make more effective medicine using this information, get more in-depth knowledge about modern diseases, and how to use herbs to facilitate healing and bring balance in a more effective and (w)holistic way.
The Teaching Circle is an extension of the Advanced Herbal Series where you get to continue practicing intake skills. See below for all dates.
