A Note from Rosemary about the course!
“The Science & Art of Herbalism Home Study Course is not a clinical level program, nor is the focus only on medical herbalism. Rather, the course builds a firm foundation upon which to continue to build one’s herbal education. It guides the student into the many areas and aspects of herbs providing pathways to deepen one’s awareness. The students complete the course with a well-rounded and grounded herbal education. The course is geared towards the beginner/intermediate students of herbalism, though I’ve had many knowledgeable well-trained herbalists sign up. They use the course material as a review and/or to better organize their own source of knowing and information. The Science & Art of Herbalism provides a systematic comprehensive way to organize one’s studies and gives excellent resources and techniques for doing so.” - Rosemary Gladstar

Courses For Working with Intention

Did you know that along with Herbal, Aromatherapy and Gardening Classes and I also love and teach multi-denominational workshops focusing on Intention?

Intention is practices by every religion.. And in many different ways. 

Raised as an Irish Catholic, hearing about fairies and Mermaids, and being the great, great grand daughter of a Medicine woman from the Mohegan longhouse.
I am very blessed to have been taught so many different ways to pray.
I love my heritage and I hear I hear it beat so loud in my heart.
Working with intention is easy once you learn how to settle in and listen..
We are all brothers and sisters and I am honored to teach all that I know and share all that has been taught to me!
