Founded in 1978 by Rosemary Gladstar, CSHS is one of North America's oldest centers for herbal education. Now under the ledership of owners Rebecca Maxfield and Jason Miller and program coordinator Autumn Summers. CSHS continues in the spirit in which it was formed by offering a multi-perspective approach to Earth-centered botanical studies.

East West School of Herbology
The East West Courses are a unique combination of Western, Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese herbology. Many of the graduates of our 36 Lesson Professional Herb Course program have obtained professional membership status in the American Herbalists Guild (AHG). This is important since the AHG is the only professional clinical herbalists organization in North America.
Herbal medicine in North America has grown from an off-beat interest promoted by a handful of non-mainstream adherents, to an 8 billion dollar a year mainstream business -- and it's still growing. Increasingly we see professional medical practitioners including medical doctors, pharmacists, nurses, chiropractors, acupuncturists to non-professional lay persons exhibit a keen interest in herbal medicine prompted at the behest of their patients. The reason is clear: Herbs work. For this, there is no dispute even by those who would be normally critical of so-called 'alternative medicine.' As a result, there is an urgent need for qualified people in the growing professions of clinical herbology, herbal pharmacy, herbal research, herb cultivation and wildcrafting, herbal marketing and product development.
Throughout the last several decades Michael Tierra and the East West School of Herbology have been in the forefront of the herbal renaissance, promoting its widespread growth and acceptance throughout the Western world. To increase the standards, credibility and acceptance of clinical herbalism, in 1989 Michael founded the American Herbalists Guild.
There is no shortcut to mastery. Courses and schools that purport to offer 'master herbalist' (MH) or other misleading degrees, often based on a 'quickie' weekend or a single week-long workshop, have no guaranteed legal professional standing. Be that as it may, there is a growing number of professional herbalists throughout North America. Many of these are graduates of the East West Herb Course, which represents a comprehensive and thorough herbal training program. (See the "Student Profiles" on the bulletin board). Our graduates are confident and competent herbalists!
Remember; one can learn hundreds of herbs, but that knowledge is clinically worthless without its integration into a traditional system of diagnosis and treatment. Additionally, only the East West Herb Course systematically integrates the three main systems of herbal medicine based on the traditional practice of Western, Chinese and Ayurvedic (East Indian) herbal medicine.
We believe that herbal medicine is not simply another profession, but an inspired calling. It is to this inner calling, as well as the increasing numbers of students who feel drawn to the study of herbal medicine, that we dedicate our teachings. If you are one of those who feel such inner promptings, come journey with us down this heartfelt path of wonder and learning. A wise person once said that whatever energy is expended towards education is never lost. Enroll in one of our courses today and let it serve as your guide on your personal 'Way of Herbs.'

Chicago College of Healing Arts
We believe learning happens in a lively environment where students are engaged with each other and a rich body of work. In particular, we believe that students need hands-on experiences to ground their intellectual understandings. Because of this our courses have elements that appeal to all the senses, and all levels of being. Students taste, smell, observe, grow and experience herbs. In the summer months, students spend time on our Indiana United Plant Savers Sanctuary tending, harvesting and medicine making with herbs. Weekly lectures and clinical practicums prepare the student for a clinical practice in herbalism. Our program is one - three years of training depending on your goals with herbalism.
