The School of Embodied Herbalism's



an online course for
 Meeting the Plants, Rooting into the Earth,
and Connecting to Spirit

Plants have been our companions since the Beginning ~

Since the Garden.

Created for beauty, shade, shelter, and food,
they hold Medicine and Magic and have the ability
 to touch not only our physical bodies but also our spiritual bodies. 


And they long to do so, and call to us, 
Come and See.


There is nothing to do but
Pass through the Veil and Surrender.
On the Other Side, the Green World awaits  with hands full of
Welcome and Wonder.

Are you ready to cross over, 
walk The Path and merge with the Green?

Then join the
2020 Embodied Apprenticeship.

Walk the Green Path.
It has been walked since the Beginning. 
Your Ancestors are calling,
The Plants are calling.

Course Requirements

Your Path is your own.  I am simply a companion along the way, holding space and offering gifts.  I trust your knowing of what you need to continue your journey.
If full immersion is what your path requires, then you will receive a lovely (and well-deserved) Certificate of Completion, when you:


  • Present a Final Project

  • Complete Reading and Journaling Assignments

  • Attend at least 19 of the 22 class sessions

Class Structure and Style

The Embodied Apprenticeship is a 10-month, plant-filled immersion where ancient ways and contemporary knowledge come together to nurture your connection with the plants.  Using an online classroom, we gather for class twice a month, meeting for 1.5 hours each time. Information is presented with the intent to inspire, and heart-felt interaction and discussion is encouraged. 

However, simply being and listening is welcome and given loving space.
(I, too, enjoy quiet sometimes.)  There is room for everyone. 

The knowledge and experience gathered will fill your mind, strengthen your heart, and open your hands so you may offer plant medicine to yourself, your family, and your community.

This course and its format merge best with those who are curious, have open-hearts and minds, and are self-motivated. 
If you've fallen in love with the plants, then join the 
Embodied Apprenticeship.

"Amanda’s lessons taught us to quiet the busy internal voices that manage our hectic lives. She created space for us to slow down, look inward, and give voice to our deep intuition. Somehow, deep inside us, we know, or at least can learn, how the plants are able to help us heal."
