Continued Training

The two-year Sensory Herb Continued Training follows on from the Foundation Year.  It is designed to deepen your knowledge of plants and the human body and train you to become a confident & skilled in Sensory Herbalism.

 

The training shares a whole system of medicine developed by the Seed SistAs over many years.  The course is designed to give you the confidence, skills and knowledge to develop your own healing practice to share with your community.

You will get to know your own personal materia medica intimately.  You will be growing and harvesting herbs and creating your own beautiful remedies. The course gives you recipes and a toolkit that have been tried and tested on literally thousands of people with positive results.

This isn’t a course that spoon-feeds you information; you won't just be sat in a classroom copying notes. This course is designed to make you delve into yourself and begin to tap into your inner wisdom to intuit and understand the natural world around you.  You will also be required to work with and observe the land and study the propagation and growth of herbs.

We have a herb garden with over 50 medicinal plants at our disposal and the horticultural aspect is very important to our work.  Each weekend consists of roughly 50% fieldwork – working outside or directly with the plants themselves.  And 50% theoretical work during which time we shall be guiding you gently through each system of the human body and how the emotional, physical and more ethereal bodies interconnect.

We will be observing root causes of any imbalance or dis’ease’ and investigating how people can be treated completely holistically.  Your healing toolkit will go beyond your materia medica to include nutrition, meditation and breathing exercises, movement and ritual.  

Our philosophy integrates the power of intention and belief into everything that we offer.  All medicines are created with deep concentration and observation of the astrology, soil, location, other quality ingredients and the focus of the medicine is amplified with mantras and affirmations.

 

Continued training overview:  

  • 200 hours of hands-on practical study over 8 fully-catered residential weekends
  • 300 hours of supported study at home. Deepen your knowledge and skills with guided homework between each session. Homework includes making medicines, reading and research.
  • Learn how to guide yourself and others toward the root cause of health issues with the Sensory Herb Tools
  • Confidently master your Materia Medica. We will laser-point your focus to study 35 plants deeply so you know them inside out as you would an old friend
  • Gain knowledge and skills you need to blend the plants in your Materia Medica into a set of herbal drops that have successfully treated thousands of patients over the last 15 years
  • Learn to supercharge your herbal drops with the additional tools of creativity, magic and ritual
  • Deepen your sensory guided art techniques and enhance your Sensory Herbal 
  • Plant your own medicine garden as a vehicle to share your knowledge with your community and attract others to your change and grow, aligning with the plant world.
 

What to expect: 

  • Certification as a Sensory Herbalist
  • Your own deep healing journey
  • An apothecary of your own handmade medicines to begin your practice 
  • The autonomy to be able to make your own medicine each year
  • Your own community medicine garden 
  • A practical healing toolkit that includes diet, movement, meditation and ritual in addition to herbs
  • A beautiful Sensory Herbal — your own tailor-made reference book 
  • A community of Sensory Herbalists, like-minded earth-lovers to support you on your journey with plant medicine and healing rituals

 

What is expected of you:

  • Make your own travel arrangement to and from the venue
  • Arrive in good time and turn up promptly to all sessions
  • Complete the self-guided homework and hand-in where required
  • Bring all necessary equipment to the sessions
  • Inform us of any dietary requirements in good time
  • Kindness and consideration to fellow students and an understanding that you are part of a group dynamic. Any issues must be discussed with the course tutors before talking with others or the group as a whole

 

What our Sensory Herbalists say:

 

         Kristin Walker

"I found the Seed Sistas to be the most loving, patient, knowledgeable and skilled people I have ever met. They inspire me to be a completely better and more thriving version of myself. They are vivacious and infectious in their approach and zest for life, living both honorably and ecstatically, and I simply wanted to spend as much time with them as I could.  I have finished the apprenticeship being completely empowered to control and navigate the course of my health. I have come to a deep understanding and love for my body, and its interconnectedness with the amazing life and natural world around me. Every day now in someway revolves around herbs. Every part of my routine is connected to them. Every journey is filled with greeting old and new friends, the herbs, and connecting them to the loved ones and clients in my life. Intimate connections over and over, like a beautiful spiral."

                                                                   

         Chris Gooch

"This course is amazing. The teaching is brillliant as we get to experience Karen and Fiona's passion for the plants and make friends with the plants ourselves by way of sight, touch, taste and intuition.

I'm much more aware of the seasons and what is available when and where. I never buy Vitamin C now - just use good old rosehips (enough to last the year until the next harvest). In fact, my essential oils, plant oils, balms and tinctures are the only medicine chest I need. Perfect."
