Practical knowledge is of ultimate value and will pay you dividends for the years to comE.
The Art and Practice of Spiritual Herbalism
The Art and Practice of Spiritual Herbalism program offers you a deeper way of thinking, encouraging radical theories of self-healing and ultimately community healing to take shape in your mind, resulting in a transformation of mind, body and spirit.
The roots of the word Apprenticeship literally means grasp with the hands. The right mentor-apprenticeship relationship is the most efficient and productive form of learning. Knowledge is abstract when the learning process is just based on passive absorption. As your mentor I know where to focus your attention and how to challenge you. My wisdom, knowledge and experience becomes yours. I provide immediate feedback and realistic feedback to your work, so you can improve rapidly. All knowledge you receive can then be integrated into your individual spirit through this practical, self-directed opportunity to achieve mastery in herbal medicine and most importantly yourself.
