“I have been learning and teaching the medicinal use of herbs for decades, as well as providing information to thousands of individuals on how to use herbs for themselves, their clients and their families. I am a medical school professor, and teach medicinal pharmacognocy at the masters level. I am also a hands on indigenous herbalist with a strong belief in interspecies communication with plants and other living and earth based personalities, as well as a wildcrafter.
Prerequisites: Strong desire to learn about the traditional as well as the scientific aspects involved in the known and unknown mechanisms of action of herbs. Respect for the individual consciousness of plants. Hint: Read “The Secret Life of Plants.”
I have been traveling extensively to indigenous areas of the world to seek out medicine people. I lived for years in a grass shack in southern Mexico, as an apprentice to a “curandera”. My children were born in an off the grid homestead in Bisbee Arizona, and never had a vaccination or anti-biotic. We used herbs and homeopathics for all ailments. I was also a midwife and assisted at prenatal counseling and home births. I currently run Shamanic Journey Expeditions through my organization, along with Dr. Eugene Zampieron, ND, www.ecotoursforcures.com, and we offered this course through Stony Brook University for 3 College Credits. I studied with many teachers such as John Christopher, Bernard Jensen, Ann Wigmore and Hazel Parcells. I have been on panels and co-taught with Mark Blumenthal, Roy Upton, Aviva Romm, Rosemary Gladstar , Chris Hobbs, David Winston and many other current herbalists. I was the head nurse for 23 years at The Corsello Centers for Complimentary Medicine, and am now a Medical School clinical instructor. I LOVE the interface between spirituality and science, and the scientific validation of long understood traditional uses of herbal medicines. I have also had a fulfilling career within the nutraceutical industry as a professional herbalist with Nature’s Answer.
