Artemisia Academy

Artemisia Academy was formed from the dream that the healers journey could help other practitioners find their path and become HEALED healers, with healthy boundaries, clear expectations, and a strong emphasis that helping others should not come at our own bodies expense.  We hope to create not only another generation of incredible herbalists, but also successful entrepreneurs, that create passionately fulfilling & purposeful lives that inspire others to find their path and purpose as well.

 

Just as the Greek Goddess Artemis stood up for the healing plants, lands, and people in need, we hope to create a culture of personal responsibility & duty to protect the lands we live on and be of service to our community.  We believe many businesses today have harmed both the people and the planet do to a lack of these values. We hope that by teaching herbalists to not only care for themselves and their family, but also the land that we are a part of, that they will in turn create holistic businesses that serve our community for generations to come.


Artemisia Academy hopes to instill the following values through our students in all we do:

 

Honor Thyself and Put Self care first:  That healing others should not come at your own body's expense.  That through self knowledge and rigorous honesty, we can get to the core of our needs and heal generational wounds and traumas.  That as healers, we have to be leader's in this healing by being a living example that we should value our own healing above those we care for, not out of selfishness, but out of necessity to be role models for those we help.


Integrity- That by living, working, and teaching with openness, honesty and having moral principles, we can create a better world.  As practitioners, it is of utmost importance to know the distinction between right and wrong, and demonstrating this in all we do.  Broken healers hurt people, Healed Healers Heal People.  That it is not only okay to have boundaries, but necessary, that by showing our own needs have value, others may recognize that they have needs too.


Authenticity- That living in our truth, being honest, and being prepared to show Vulnerability.  Healing often comes from seeing others who have walked the path before you.  Being true to who YOU are gives others the chance to do the same.  That it is okay to be where you are at.  We all take time to learn and it sometimes takes YEARS to heal.  Life is truly more about the journey than the destination.  Showing up as your perfectly flawed human self means you humbly accept where you are on the journey, and that you still have room to grow.


Community- That our work as healers is the gift AND privilege of being of service to those around us.  That in our giving and helping others, we in turn are being given our purpose and fulfilling our true calling. 


Environmental Stewardship- That our job as herbalists is not only to help others, but to be the history keepers and storytellers of the land, the voice of the plants, and to pass on the wisdom of those that have come before us.  It is our responsibility as herbalists to develop a two way relationship with our natural environment and the land we live.  This relationship is built on both giving and taking, through conservation and sustainable practices, and also teaching these principles of the use and protection of our wild lands for generations to come.


At the Artemisia Academy, we strive to make herbal & holistic health education Accessible, Applicable and Relevant in everything we do.  That means we teach people where they are at (not where we want them to be), and we teach skills, herbs, and recipes that can be used in everyday life for our student base.  Most of our students live in cities, not on a farm or in the rainforest, so we try to keep our approach as down to earth as possible.


We also strive to be Knowledgeable, Qualified, and Thorough.  We teach from our own experiences, and are not afraid to say, “I don't know,” when something is outside of our own knowledge base.  We ask our students to fill in the gaps, or be a resource for our own learning, and to let each class be a cooperative learning experience.  We encourage students to look up answers online during class, and to research answers for themselves and report back to us if something is outside of the scope of the class material that day.


We make sure to be Compassionate, and encourage Openness & Authenticity through our teaching style, to let everyone feel like they can share and be vulnerable too.  We believe that there is no such thing as a stupid question, and make sure that everyone feels comfortable to learn, share, and ask questions.

East West School of Planetary 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 Registered Herbalist 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.'

Wellness Simplified! This is a hands-on course in herbalism, gardening, seasonal eating, and food as medicine at a working farm.


On this journey, you will learn by growing, harvesting, nourishing and healing with the herbs and vegetables as you learn to make them part of your everyday life.

We then move forward in developing our knowledge base to work with herbs safely and instill confidence to use them to nourish and heal yourself, your family and your friends.


This is a hands-on course in both gardening and herbal medicine skills. You will work on deepening your knowledge and connection with the plants over a growing season. Through the use of this knowledge, you will learn how to make quality medicine from the plants. The herbs in combination with whole foods will provide you with a foundation for healthier living and fulfillment of a more self-sufficient lifestyle.


This is a hands-on class!


You will take home something from every class. You will take home 70 projects! This is a learning opportunity as well as a chance to produce and immediately start using your new skills to enhance your lifestyle with the projects that you make in class.

Foundations in Herbal Medicine

Tieraona Low Dog, MD, developed the original Foundations in Herbal Medicine program in 1992 as a two-year training program that included a sliding scale, student-run clinic in Albuquerque, NM—one of the first of its kind in the United States. In 2013, the program was completely updated and relaunched using an online teaching platform with extensive video and written materials.


The Foundations program is designed for clinicians and highly motivated non-clinicians who are interested in learning the traditions of Western herbal medicine wrapped firmly in herbal pharmacology, physiology, biology, botany, biochemistry, and integrative medicine. The program is based on a systems approach (e.g., nervous, gastrointestinal, cardiovascular), with each module building upon previously learned material. Students work through case studies that are followed by a treatment approach presented by Dr. Low Dog. Evidence based discussions of nutrition, lifestyle, macronutrients, and micronutrients are woven throughout the program, offering a truly integrative approach.


This 500-hour course is structured and self-guided, with most students completing the program in 24 months. Clinicians will come away with confidence about incorporating herbal and natural medicine into their practice, and non-clinicians will be able to serve their community as holistic health educators and providers of herbal care. Program participants can choose to achieve one or two certification levels:

Hawthorn & Honey School of Herbal Medicine

Deeply rooted in the Pacific Northwest, Hawthorn & Honey offers seasonal apprenticeships and monthly workshops in Tacoma, WA. Come on a journey through our local forests, beaches, and mountains as we learn the art of herbalism in nature – as it’s intended – awakening our senses and connecting with the plants.


In this year-long apprenticeship, we’ll break the foundations of herbalism down piece by piece, through guided seasonal explorations where you’ll meet the plants in person, in-depth study on how the body works, and hands-on practice where you’ll synthesize everything you’ve learned in the kitchen.

Our students learn the history and medicinal uses of each plant and how to create a daily plant practice using meal preparation, meditation, journaling, and dream work. Each day our apprentices create new remedies, adding to their home apothecary, while also building a personal relationship with the plants through intuitive plant communication and personal ancestry research.


Through the many years that I’ve taught this seasonal apprenticeship, I’ve found that it’s not just about learning the art of herbalism. It’s the connection with nature, the relationship with the plants. They’re here to help you – whether it’s to heal your heart, rediscover yourself, or find your true path. The plants offer a grounding force apart from what people can offer us. This is what it’s really about…taking the time to build relationships with plants that will change your life.


Come join us on this life changing adventure, create new friendships with your fellow apprentices, and find the connection you’ve been looking for.

Northern Appalachia School of Vitalist Herbalism & Ecology

Northern Appalachia School offers in-person and distance programming in bioregional herbalism, ethnobotany, ecology, and earth skills.


Our Mission:

There is a spark inside all of us; a vitality that inspires us to make the world better for having been in it. We can make the choice to tend to that spark and kindle a flame; to contribute to the beauty and goodness of the world, or we can let it go out. Our mission at the Northern Appalachia School is to tend that fire inside others and help transform and return our local ecosystems and its inhabitants to a state of vitality.


The health of the land and the health of its people are intimately intertwined; you cannot have one without the other. The premise of nature-deficit disorder indicates with diminishing time spent in nature, our physical and mental health is declining. How strange a time we live in, to think of nature as something other than ourselves. It is not merely connection to nature we have lost; it is connection to our true selves.


The land is our teacher, our ancestor, and our home. It is calling us back.

An herbalist is someone who lives at the edge between the world of people and the world of the plants. We are stewards of the medicinal plants, of the natural world, and of the Earth herself. Herbalists connect people with plants so that they may partner with them on a healing journey. Herbalists also train others who wish to learn this sacred craft. It is our sacred joy and honor to do the work we do. The path of the herbalist is, ultimately, a sacred journey.


Sacred Journey School of Herbalism reflects Ginger Webb’s deep love for the plants and for humanity; her study with the late great herbalist Michael Moore; her years of experience making plant-based medicines; her explorations of east Indian philosophies including Ayurveda, Kundalini Yoga, and the chakra system; her geeky passion for botany, wild plants, and plant families; her reverence for the wisdom of the ancients; and her belief that we all have access to the healing wisdom of the plant world simply by virtue of the fact that we are alive and share consciousness with all life.


In addition to the programs and classes taught by Ginger Webb, we offer classes throughout the year taught by guest teachers. To stay in the loop about new upcoming classes, please subscribe to our email newsletter at gingerwebb.com. We now offer several live virtual learning options as well.

Meet JoAnn Sanchez: Herbalist, Educator, Friend of Earth & Western Herbalism Program Director.

JoAnn Sanchez is trained in social work, forestry, natural resource development, botany and describes herself as a “primarily self-taught Herbalist” with experience spanning four decades.


“A natural attraction and affinity to plants began in childhood,” says JoAnn, program director of the Western Herbalism program at Southwest Institute of Healing Arts, “as it is with many Herbalists.”


Fate directed JoAnn to an herbal Shoppe in the late-1970’s. There she met a third generation New England herbalist who modeled her craft through mentoring for many months. The next leg of her journey took her to the Arizona desert, where she learned from an Italian-American who knew the herbal ways from European family traditions.


She tells us: “I was influenced by many American herbalists such as Mark Blumenthal, Chris Hobbs, Cascade Anderson-Geller, Donald Yance, Roy Upton, Michael Tierra, Michael Moore, Daniel Gagnon, Paul Bergner and others.” In workshops and conventions during the first chapters of her career when she worked in the natural products industry as retailer, broker, and educator, she credits their work for having personal and direct influence on her understanding of herbal heritage.


Her first decade of introduction in the retail and clinical beginnings further encouraged her private study, where she found inspiration in the work of Dr. Bill Mitchell, Dr. John Christopher, Stephen Buhner, Judith Bergner, Matthew Wood, Sharol Tilgner, and Rosemary Gladstar. She has served as an educator, gardener, wildcrafter, apothecary host and clinician ever since.


“My work renders itself from Nature and Her environments,” explains JoAnn.


Through practical learning and diligent study, her long standing curiosity has led her to have experience in the field learning botany, observing the morphology and life cycles of plants, of which she remarks: “I have learned of Earth’s wondrous kin-dom.”

“This has been the motivation to proceed in my exploration and continue following the herbalist path as my vocation and calling,” JoAnn emphasizes, “It is an ardent admiration of trees, flowers, grasses, meadow, forest, and seashore; the earthly gardens that provides the substance that lends me to attune, harvest, research, process, produce, dispense, and administer the remedies of Nature’s offerings.”


“This is my work, this is my life: to journey close and near to these Green Folk all my days. The gift of being an Herbal educator is the outcome of my affinity and earnest attempt to be a mindful caretaker of the Earth places where the medicine plants are.”


What will I be learning as a Western Herbalism student?


30-hours of introductory courses create your foundation in herbal studies, familiarize you with the working language of the herbalist, and support discussion of contemporary issues in the field. You will begin cultivating plants, making medicine and identifying local plants.


You will also receive education in Chinese herbals, Ayurveda, plants native to America, endangered plants, earth stewardship, plant chemistry, botanical plant families, herb gardening, studies of medicinal plants and the applications of these for all human body systems. A thorough series of herbal pharmacy and medicine-making lessons are included midway in the course.


Your field study will emphasize desert botanicals identification, native uses, plant spirit medicine, flower study, and ethical harvesting.


What will my profitable opportunities be as an Herbalist?


Our Herbalism graduates do a myriad of things – community education, working alongside naturopathic doctors, publishing literature about Herbalism, opening brick-and-mortar retail spaces, one-on-one wellness coaching, and more.


Within your program, you will learn to write research papers, participate in an externship, and learn to formulate herbal products, giving you the opportunity to experience all aspects of being an Herbalist and to decide which unique path will bring you the most joy.

Terra Sylva School of Botanical Medicine

Terra Sylva exists to meet the growing need for environmentally and socially conscious herbalists able to support their communities as healers, educators, and emissaries of the plants.


Our Community Herbalism programs provide training in Western herbal medicine from a holistic and Vitalist perspective. We emphasize the foundational elements of Western herbalism: the flavors of herbs, influences and actions of plants on the body—what we can notice directly with our senses. We employ a traditional Vitalist approach to healing. Vitalism respects the intrinsic wisdom of the human body and seeks to recognize and support the healing force that exists within us all, using herbs, food, and lifestyle changes as fundamental therapies. These time-honored skills and methods are deepened by in-depth lessons in modern botany, plant chemistry, human anatomy and physiology, and the study of disease.


At the same time, our program emphasizes immersion in nature and experiential learning. Whether in-person or online, we include practical embodied exercises that train our attention on the plants and on our bodies. We also cover the many techniques for making plant medicine, from the intuitive art of the elixir to quick and effective tincture percolations.


We believe that attending to wellness implies recognizing the impact of structural oppression on the health of individuals and communities. Anti-oppressive practice and education is foundational to our school’s curriculum.

The Hermit’s Grove Master Herbalist Program

Conceived in the 1980s in Minneapolis under a different name, The Hermit’s Grove Master Herbalist Program was developed and founded by Paul Beyerl whose work as an herbal author and educator is well known and respected. The Master Herbalist Program 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.


We are a non-profit educational program. Our student advisors, teachers, and 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 program 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, our 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 $3,500 at $35.00 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 and a complete catalog. If you live outside North America, please send $6.50 in U.S. funds.


We have a wonderful 11-acre site in the Mississippi River Valley area of southeastern Minnesota which houses our Retreat Center as well as our educational and administrative offices. We are now able to provide more for our students using streaming and online options. Being centrally located will allow us to be more available to all students. There are students in Canada, on the East and West Coasts of the U.S., students in Portugal, Tunisia, and elsewhere abroad. The new library space has all of the 4500 books housed in the same building. It is bright, comfortable, and ideal for research and study.

The Human Path / Herbal Medics Academy

Also known as The Human Path, Herbal Medics Academy has an amazing and diverse faculty of 18 instructors and

offers four major certification programs that all focus around herbal, wilderness and integrative medicine: 1)

Austere Medicine Program 2) Clinical Herbalism Program 3) Family Medicine Program and 4) Advanced Medicine

Making Program.

The Austere Medicine Program focuses on the training of wilderness and herbal medicine in remote, austere and

under-served environments and is taught by Sam Coffman and Dr. Steve Pehrson MD. This 1+ year, online

program includes wilderness first responder certification and takes both herbal and orthodox medical training far

beyond that level. The Austere Medicine Program culminates in the Herbal and Off-Grid Medicine Experience

(HOME) which is a 13-day, on-site, scenario-based intensive that allows students to work with both field clinical

herbalism and orthodox medicine techniques in a post-disaster environment.


The Clinical Herbalism Program provides online clinical education and on-site clinical internship that surpasses

the requirements to apply for AHG registration. Subjects include botanical functional medicine and nutrition

(taught by Dr. Kyla Helm, MD and Sam Coffman), pathophysiology of all major body systems from the standpoint

of herbalism, case management, formulating, intake, botany and phytochemistry, clinic setup and business

management, tele-medicine and on-site clinical (and apothecary) internships and Spanish for herbalists. These

courses and many more make up the clinical herbalism program that is sub-divided into 4 levels.

The Family Medicine Program is the only course of its kind that we know of. It was developed and is taught by

Katia LeMone Midwife, MPH and Mel Baily, nurse midwife. This online program is specifically focused toward

developing competent herbalists who can take care of family health care issues - to include women’s health,

emergency birth, post-partum care, pediatric herbalism and doula certification. This program runs from one to

two years depending on the level of depth students want.

The Advanced Medicine Making Program – AKA The Apothecarist Program – is a fully online course taught by

seven amazing instructors that deeply explores basic and advanced processes of making botanical products as a

profession, at home or as part of a clinic. This program includes two 12-week semesters covering internal and

external advanced medicine making techniques and types of medicine, along with 5 intensives covering mycology

medicine making, cGMP law, multifractional medicine making, internal medicine making and external medicine

making. Herbs and resources are sent to students to be able to make medicine at home as part of the assignments

that are demonstrated, discussed and shared weekly.

In addition to these programs (and many other short elective courses ranging from radio communications to

medicine makers workshops, plant walks, slow sand water filtration, blacksmithing and more), students are also

given the opportunity to apply and practice what they have learned while helping medically underserved

communities by working on teams in the school’s outreach organization – Herbal Medics. This organization hosts

week-long free herbal clinics, slow-sand water filtration, permaculture medicinal and food gardening work and

education (such as free wilderness first aid certification, nutrition and health classes and more) for communities

that are remote, rural, underserved and desire this assistance.

We are developing these changes in response to COVID-19 and plans are evolving as of May 2020. Updates will be made to our website as they become available.*


Herbal Roots: This program emphasizes hands-on, embodied learning and is ideal for those who are new to herbs, but keen to make them part of their daily lives. This course provides a thorough introduction to using herbs for self-care, splitting students’ time between garden, lab and classroom. Additional topics include an introduction to our relational and justice-focused orientation to herbalism, the history of herbal medicine, fundamental energetic concepts, and basic physiology of body systems.


Family Herbalist/ Clinical Year 1: This year is a combination of hands-on skill development, and didactic time in the classroom, providing more complex medicine-making skills, introductory coverage of phytochemistry and pharmacology, student-led skill sharing, holistic physiology, in-depth coverage of materia medica, and therapeutic approaches to common system dysfunctions.


Clinical Year 2 — This year focuses on understanding more complex system dysfunctions (both energetically and physiologically), as well as the social and ecological determinants of health, intermediate coverage of phytochemistry and pharmacology, developing critical thinking and clinical strategies, and grounding in the logistical and relational skills of a practitioner.


Clinical Year 3 — This year brings the learning from the first two years to the clinical relationship. In addition to continued study of complex health conditions and materia medica, students see clients under supervision in the community clinics, while also developing a business plan for their future work as herbalists, and practice sharing their knowledge through community teaching.
