Have you ever wondered about herbalism classes? This new mini course is open for registration from today (July 19th) till August 5th, and will start on August 6th and has two options: the totally free class, or you can upgrade and purchase a gorgeous printed herbal journey workbook to go with it. Even though I have taken many classes through Herbal Academy, I signed up this morning for the class. And yes, I ordered the workbook, I just couldn’t pass it up!
What is in the course?
Lesson 1 looks closely at certification and regulation for herbalists and explores some of the educational options that are available to those interested in herbal careers. Learning about these important topics will help you begin to develop confidence and lay the groundwork for a career as an herbalist.
In Lesson 2, we will take a look at the language that herbalists use – words you can and cannot use legally, regardless of education, due to the current state of herbalism as an unlicensed practice. While this topic is sometimes confusing for beginning herbalists, it is important to understand the appropriate use of language when talking or writing about herbs.
Lesson 3 dives deep into the ethical considerations of becoming an herbalist. We’ll give you the lowdown on scope of practice, confidentiality, informed consent, and full disclosure. For those interested in clinical practice, we’ll go over basic red flags, safety concerns, and referrals. Introducing yourself to these key concepts will continue to build your confidence in building an ethical and safe herbal practice.
In Lesson 4, we will outline key aspects of starting your own herbal business and the many details that go along with each. Considering the diversity of options covered in this important lesson is an invaluable stepping stone to dreaming up an herbal business and writing a business plan.
Lesson 5 discusses the importance of keeping your finger on the pulse of herbalism. The way that herbalists use herbs is constantly evolving, with new clinical research being published all of the time and practicing herbalists discovering novel ways of bringing balance to human physiology with herbs. Get inspired by all of the ways you can stay connected, network, and continue your herbal education in the last lesson of this free mini course!
And you have plenty of time to take the new class – 3 months once you activate it, meaning if summer is busy, once the kids go back to school, it is time for you to go as well! But don’t wait to sign up – you only have till August 5th, before the class signup closes.
