Apprenticeships in Herbal Medicine September 2018
For years I have been asked to teach apprenticeships in herbal medicine. I am humbled that so many people find the little knowledge I have worth learning. So, after careful thought, I have decided to take on a small group of apprentices in Belfast this year. To my knowledge there are no practitioner level courses in herbal medicine in this part of the world. I have also designed a course which includes in-depth modules in cultivation, botany, nutrition, wildcrafting, aromatherapy and practical medicine making so that the student is able to gain the knowledge to safetly and sustainably grow, harvest, prepare and create herbal remedies. This practical study will be informed by a wide-ranging approach to herbal medicine which embraces the wisdom of the ancients, with a modern evidence-based approach. The 3 year course is set to the highest of standards and leads to a Diploma in Herbal Medicine allowing graduates to practice the time-honoured tradition of herbal medicine at a recognized professional level. Although I will be the main lecturer on the course, I have invited some of the very best teachers from the international herbal community to share their considerable wisdom.
If you are genuinely interested in this course; have a passion for nature and wish to dedicate yourself to healing yourself and others, then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org expressing your interest. Full details and application forms will be sent out towards the end of March 2018. This is a unique opportunity, and may be the only time this course will run.
