Welcome friends to our Programs & Offerings for 2016
Sacred Plant Traditions is an educational center devoted to all forms, functions and fashions of plants.
We teach all levels of classes on gardening, plant identification, creating a home apothecary, as well as our celebrated Three Year Community Herbalist Training. To see what our graduates are doing with their training please click here.
We are also stepping up our game as participants with United Plant Savers and working with passion and dedication at getting the word out about plant conservation. We are moving towards working with plant spirit essence and drop dosing strategies in order to be mindful of our consumption of precious plant resources. Every Foundation student is gifted with a membership to UpS as we move forward in the exciting and challenging world of plant conservation. To support this movement please think about becoming a member of UpS or come to Rosita Arvigo’s Friday night lecture in June which is a fund raiser for the plants! More information on her class page.
There are a number of great one day classes including Kitchen Apothecary, The Art of Fermentation, and many more. For those that want more than a day but are not able to enroll in Foundations, our Six-Week class is now offered twice this year with night classes as well. The overwhelming response to this series has been great!
We offer our very popular Nine-Month Foundations program for those who wish to deepen their journey. After 25 years of teaching this format, we are delighted with how experience and all the participants, have perfected the curriculum as well as the flow and transformational nature of this program. I am in awe of the profound effect plants have on our lives and our relationship to self, family and community. This program is a testimony to that truth.
The revision and implementation of our Clinic training is complete. What an elegant and thorough system to ground our practice with – Traditional Western Energetics. Take a look at the two year advanced programs.

Whatever form or fashion of plant medicine you choose, we welcome you to our gardens, classrooms, apothecary and sanctuary. Our mission is to help people remember their true nature as it relates to the elements and worlds around them. We invite you for tea, a class, a day, or a lifetime; for once you feel the spirit of the plants you will be touched forever.
Kathleen & the Staff at SPT
It is folly to ignore the sacred in life or medicine.
Skirting the spiritual has had a shattering effect on every
dimension of contemporary existence.
