Bellebuono School of Herbal Medicine

The Bellebuono School of Herbal Medicine is one of the most welcoming and popular programs for beginner, intermediate and advanced herbalists and for any health care practitioner or professional who wants to include plant medicine in his or her practice. Directed by award-winning herbalist, apothecary director, teacher, national speaker, and author Holly Bellebuono, this program introduces students to the beauty and function of herbs for medicine with a focus on herbal formulary by body system. Successful completion confers a certificate and credential, and the rigorous formulary-and-pharmacology-based curriculum has been especially useful for herbalists, wellness coaches, naturopathic students, botanists, pharmacists, midwives, ecologists, women’s specialists, and alternative healers.

We offer 3 programs:

1) THE 2-WEEK HERBAL INTENSIVE on Martha's Vineyard. Every Summer we host a delightful and engaging 2-week training and certification intensive for intermediate and advanced learners. The 2017 Intensive will take place June 22 - July 6 (Early Bird Registration ends March 21 2017). This fantastic learning opportunity on the beautiful island of Martha's Vineyard teaches the herbal curriculum in a dynamic small-group setting for an engaging exploration of all herbal medicine has to offer. We meet in a casual and supportive environment to study plant ID, harvesting, processing, apothecary, case studies, jurisprudence, and more--with an emphasis on herbal formulary. With its in-depth focus on how herbs work in the body (the curriculum is organized by body system), the 2-Week Intensive also includes hands-on experience processing a variety of folk remedies (the 4-Day Apothecary Weekend). Students also participate in multiple herb walks, field trips, and garden explorations around the beautiful island of Martha's Vineyard, as well as kitchen processing, pharmacology and physiology based on the body's primary systems (respiratory, reproductive, digestive, etc.). Our studies include the heritage and folklore of healing, the philosophy of healers from around the world, and more. If you want to deepen your understanding of herbs and how they work in the body--and to learn how to apply herbal formulary in family and community settings-- this is the course for you. Every year this is a very well-received program that strengthens students' abilities and builds community.

Pre-requisite: intermediate experience/education in either plants (gardening, farming, botany, etc.) OR healthcare (nursing, midwifery, herbalism, etc.)

Certificate Earned: Community Herbalist Certificate

Tuition: Early Bird: $2,295 (until March 21). Normal Tuition: $2,495 (until June 1)

Housing: Beds are available at our Herbal HQ, a fantastic and comfortable house where we hold most of our classes and workshops. The house is in walking distance to West Tisbury post office, grocery store, bank, pharmacy and pizza place and we offer both small beds ($700/2weeks) and king beds ($980/2weeks), which is some of the most affordable summer housing on the island. Past students have loved living in the Herbal HQ as it creates a unique and friendly environment and makes classes and coursework very convenient.

Note: This is an intermediate program, not an advanced clinical program. We do not cover diagnosis, cancer, or diabetes. It is, however, a comprehensive introduction to the complex how and why of herbal healing and pharmacology.

People here are interested in world culture and devoted to local living; it's a place where herbal medicine fits into the fabric of self-sufficiency and Earth appreciation nicely, and we're only a hop-skip-and-jump from Boston and it's history and walking tours.

ECLECTIC SCHOOL OF HERBAL MEDICINE

What kind of herbal school are you looking for? If you answered one with a clinical focus, our programs might be exactly what you are looking for. Our founder and head instructor has been seeing clients for well over a decade, having a practice in Alabama, Florida, and now North Carolina. Thomas Easley’s experiences, and passion for teaching others how to approach clients in a clinical setting, are the main driving forces behind our mission here at Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine. We want to give you the herbal skills in clinical nutrition, functional medicine, and traditional western herbalism to leave the program feeling confident in pursuing your practice as an herbalist. Eclectic /iˈklektik/: Adjective; deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources. Not so long ago there was a group of doctors in America that practiced Eclectic Medicine. They were physicians who employed whatever was found to be beneficial to their patients. Eclectic Medicine was formed in opposition to the toxic remedies used by standard doctors in the 19th and early 20th century. Eclectics didn’t care who discovered the remedy, if it worked they used it. Be it botanical, homeopathic, mineral or occasionally chemical medicines to bring balance to the body. Our school teaches students to use what works, no matter what tradition it comes from. With a strong grounding in both modern science and Traditional Western Herbalism, Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine offers both online and in-person educational opportunities.

Sky House Yoga

Sky House Yoga and the Sky House Wellness Collective was born during the Autumn eclipse season of 2011 after several months of intense work and planning, and after several years of dreaming and visioning by its founders: Ashley Litecky, Abby Burgess, and Adam Elenbaas.

At the heart of the Sky House vision lies the ancient spiritual marriage between yoga, astrology, and plant medicine. In addition to these core offerings it's our mission to provide the best in local holistic practitioner services and cutting edge wellness workshops.

Perhaps most important to the Sky House mission is our financial philosophy. Sky House is a donation based yoga studio and wellness collective. This means that we offer all of our services at donation-based price ranges, ensuring that nobody is ever turned down or priced out for a lack of funding. Since opening our doors to the community Sky House has been thriving under this trust and faith based business model.


Twice a year Sky House holds annual fundraisers and raises money to ensure that our donations prices can be maintained year round. Those who have more give more, which enables those who have less to pay only what they can afford. The Sky House vision of wealth is based in peace of heart, peace of mind, the peace of community, and a sincere sense of gratitude for the gift of life.

The Hermit’s Grove Master Herbalist Program

Master Herbalist Program

Our Master Herbalist Program [MHP] represents the culmination of more than 40 years of Paul Beyerl’s work as herbal author and educator.

Conceived in the 1980s in Minneapolis under a different name, over the years it evolved into our Master Herbalist Program with our 45,000 square foot private botanical garden, with more than a third of our 4,000 book research library directly relevant to the MHP.  The MHP is in-depth with no two students moving at the same pace. As a consequence, it is ideal for the correspondent student but does require self-motivation.

The MHP is a non-profit educational program. Beyerl and all volunteers donate 100% of our labor and time as our gift to the serious student who is committed to a quality herbal education.

There are 100 Units, a pay-as-you-go program, so that the student can afford books, herbs, equipment and time. The MHP covers herbal horticulture, and typical coursework. We also cover anatomy and physiology in ten courses; more than 100 infectious diseases and other conditions, history, ethics and more. To date more than 50% of those who complete the program are RNs.

Although challenging due to its depth, my goal is to bring the most education for the least student expense. The program itself, not counting books, herbs and equipment the student will need, is under $3,000 at $30.00 per unit with some reduced options available.

Information and application: $5.00 which includes the most current description of the program (in detail), an application form, the current edition of The Hermit’s Lantern and a complete catalog. If you live outside North America, please send $6.50 in U.S. funds.
