175 HOUR 8-MONTH FOUNDATIONS IN HERBALISM CERTIFICATE PROGRAM
At Twin Star Herbal Education we draw upon traditional, holistic modalities that empower individuals to live a healthy and peaceful modern life. This program will meet two days a month throughout the growing season, March through October. Each session focuses on one of the seven sacred healing centers (chakras), the corresponding system of the body and the herbs that support them. We honor and recognize the significant connection between well-being and our direct relationship with nature. This program provides the opportunity to continually deepen that bond by spending time outdoors in Natures classroom discovering the numerous healing benefits of the plants that grow all around us. By strengthening our knowledge and understanding of herbal wisdom we reclaim our health back into our own hands and continue to evolve the healing exchange between our communities, our planet and ourselves.
