In CHP, we move into a deeper understanding of how the body works by looking at the functioning of the endocrine system, how we make energy, methylation, epigenetics, and herbs, foods, and other aids for balance.
The student will learn about natural approaches to mental health issues, autoimmune disorders, herb/drug interactions and contraindications, chronic illnesses, and healthy aging.

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 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.

Hawthorn & Honey School of Herbal Medicine
Deeply rooted in the Pacific Northwest, Hawthorn & Honey offers seasonal apprenticeships 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 the apprenticeship, we break the foundations of herbalism down piece by piece, through guided seasonal explorations where you’ll meet the plants in person, study how the body works, and practice implementing the knowledge you're building.
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, building their home apothecary, while also developing a personal relationship with the plants through intuitive plant communication.
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, and building your community of fellow plant folks. They’re here to help you – whether it’s to heal your heart, rediscover yourself, or find your true path.

Northern Appalachia School of Vitalist Herbalism & Ecology
Northern Appalachia School offers in-person and distance programming in bioregional herbalism, ethnobotany, ecology, and earth skills.
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.

This program is only available to people who have completed Foundational Herbology or an equivalent program.
Practical Herbology (Year 3)- this is the year that we integrate everything that we have learned through real life practice. We primarily spend our time seeing clients- both as a group and individually.

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, 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 offer both in person and online learning courses.

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.
