Deepen relationship to yourself & the living earth through plant medicine

This in-depth, online course with Sacred Warrior Herbalist Andrea Stopa will help you create a holistic herbalism practice that fits into your lifestyle and needs. Together, we’ll explore the medicinal properties, folklore, and spiritual associations of a selection of local plants as you learn to engage them in healing. The course integrates teachings from the Wise Woman herbal tradition, elemental herbalism, and explores foundations for holistic self-inquiry and self-care.

ANDREA STOPA has always been sensitive to all living things but never imagined the depths that would be revealed through the practice of herbalism. Andrea is also an avid yogini and has her master’s degree in social work. The lessons of herbalism are being continually woven into practices of care for herself and others, and she is eager to support that process for a new community of students.
