NC School of Holistic Herbalism

The NC School of Holistic Herbalism is the Southeast's oldest herbal studies school. We offer classes for children as well as beginning, intermediate, and advanced adults & provide sound technical training in holistic healing with a focus on preventative lifestyle. Students are educated and empowered to cultivate deep wellness within themselves and others using hands, heart, nature, and plants. Learning in nature and through nature at NCSHH, on our thirty-acre campus, connects the student to the roots and essence of herbalism. Through the study of medicinal plants and holistic living skills, we return the ancient art of healing to the individual and to the family, rebuilding conscientious communities and embracing our divine potential.

Wise Woman Fundamentals of Herbalism

In this unique three weekend program, we create a safe and sacred circle for women to connect deeply with the earth and themselves. Together, we take an in-depth journey into the world of edible and medicinal plants, meeting one weekend each month to observe the plants developing from spring to summer. Through this program, you will develop a circle of herbal allies. In the wise woman tradition, we don't do this by just memorizing facts. This program is an opportunity to create a personal relationship with the plants, the Earth, the Goddess, your intuition, and your own body. It is not only a knowledge base, but also a lifestyle: one of self-love, nourishment, compassion, and caring for the Earth. We harvest and make medicines together. Through workshops, discussions, and plant walks, you deepen your understanding of how to take health care into your own hands. You take home reading and hands-on assignments as homework to deepen your experience between the weekends. A certificate is awarded upon completion of the program. In these times, even herbal medicine is following in the footsteps of the pharmaceutical industry, becoming increasingly disconnected and removed from the source. Join Corinna in reweaving the ancient cloak of deep respect for the earth and our own bodies.
