Foundations in Herbalism

Spring 2016 

"This class provides a great foundation in herbal medicine. Lupo's extensive experience and knowledge allows for her to meet the students where they are at, whether with lots of experience with herbs and plants or none at all! She helps us build a relationship with the plants"

-M. B. 2013 Graduate

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 one weekend a month throughout the growing season, March through October.

Each session focuses on one of the seven sacred healing centers (chakras) and the corresponding system of the body. 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.

To insure a personal and intimate experience class size is limited, please contact us at [email protected] to reserve your 2015 spot.
