Sacred Plant Traditions is a center offering classes in herbal medicine for all levels of students. From the beginner to the accomplished practitioner we offer classes and experiences crafted to deepen your understanding and relationship with plant medicines.
Our mission is threefold:
- To honor and protect the plants as living gifts bestowed to us for our health, nourishment, delight and spirit. Our teachings and practices in harvest methods (wildcrafting) as well as use of herbs in the clinic reflect this. Our backyard Botanical Sanctuary is a model and a teaching tool in our collaboration with United Plant Savers.
- Empower our community and beyond be as self sufficient as possible in tending their own healthcare.
- Train compassionate, competent clinical herbalists with a broad array of skills needed to serve their communities.
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.
