Nature speaks to those who listen. This 3 Level Certification course in Medicinal Aromatherapy + Herb Use focuses on listening. The coursework is an 18-week journey where we will sit with the plants and trees and talk to them: they  have a story to tell, a message to help us here on Earth to live, grow and heal. We will use their medicine to hear their stories and understand how they serve us. 

Like an onion, each of the 3 Levels of the course work peel back the layers of the divine simplicity yet power of plants as medicine. In the same, the coursework peels back layers of your soul and entire being as you work with these sacred teachers. 

The course asks you to tap into the subtle energy of the plants and  explore the effects of plant medicine on your mind, body and soul. From this place, you will be able to become friends with the plants and trees and co-exist with them through wisdom to use them for your own healing.

As the coursework progresses,  you will not simply understand how to use aromatherapy for your own healing: you will become deeply connected to the sacredness that is plant medicine and develop a respectful, safe and meaningful relationship with the plants and trees to help expand yourself and others. 

You need not take all three levels and can stop and start as you feel called. The levels do need to be taken order as each level peels back more layers and asks you to go deeper as you immerse yourself with the plants. Each level will teach you how to use aromatherapy and herbs for yourself and others. Each course provides an official certification and 30-hours of continuing education through the Yoga Alliance.
