ONLINE HERBALISM SCHOOL: PHASE TWO
In the Wise Woman Tradition, healing happens along a spiral path of ever-deepening discovery and integration. This class is a continuation down this path, inviting deeper relationship with the plants through continued experiential learning. Students will meet new plants, explore familiar plants, and continue to strengthen their own intuitive relationship to themselves, the plants, and the Earth.
This is an online course, conducted via live monthly Zoom sessions. Students should plan to attend every meeting as a way to deepen learning and build community, but recordings will be available to students for any missed classes.
Students will receive monthly packages from Andrea with samples of the herbs covered in each month’s class. Students will also be guided in monthly homework, exploring the land local to them through the changing of seasons.
This course is designed for students who already have some understanding of herbalism, but students of all levels are welcome. Please reach out to Andrea with any questions.
• Mailed packages of herb samples for each month
• 15 hours of class time via Zoom (class recordings sent for missed classes and/or review)
• Shared interactive online doc updated with class notes
• Outdoor homework, check-ins, and touch-points between classes
• Seasonal Virtual Plant Walk with Sacred Warrior founder, Vanessa Chakour

“Working with Andrea and the plants over the last six months was such a gift. Andrea embodies a deep connection with the Wise Woman tradition of healing and gently holds space for others to do the same. She naturally and skillfully created an environment in which each student could reconnect with their inner wisdom and tune in to the subtle magic of being in relationship with plant allies. Andrea goes above and beyond to support you in finding ways for this practice to fit your lifestyle and needs, and I felt so held throughout the process.” ~ Amanda L.
