Kootenay School of Herbal Medicine

Are you ready to explore the world around you and uncover not only the medicines, but the deeper meanings within the forest?

Welcome to the Kootenay School of Herbal Medicine!

If you want to reduce your reliance on mainstream medicine and common pharmaceuticals, I’m here to help. By teaching you how to gather and forage plants to make your own medicines for treating everything from simple cuts to complex viruses, you’ll be empowered to heal yourself, your family, and ultimately your whole community.

If you’re open to it, you can also go deeper and learn to connect with plants directly. As you begin listening to and interpreting the forest’s signals, you’ll start a meaningful, lifelong dialogue with plants and herbal remedies, allowing you to unplug from the familiar, yet unsustainable, system you’ve become used to.

The Kootenay School of Herbal Medicine is founded on the principle that

Herbs can heal more than just your body, mind & spirit.

They can heal our communities and restore balance to the Earth.

Herbal medicines are incredibly powerful tools, not only for your health and healing, but also for your peace of mind. By using local, sustainable, herbal medicines you begin to align the medicines you use with the values in your heart. This potent process leads to daily balance and a lasting fulfillment. Learn more about how I teach with your values in mind.

“The Herbal Integration Course (HIC) completely transformed my relationship with plants—from one of passive, shallow and intellectual appreciation, to one of deeper love, soft intuition, understanding and respect. I no longer just see the plant world as ‘nice nature stuff we should protect,’ but rather as a beautifully complex and diverse ecosystem of friends who have a core role to play in the healing of the world, including myself.”
