Herbal Studies 20 Hour Intensive

My approach to teaching herbal studies is not about the medicine, it’s not about finding a cure or becoming a great healer, instead it is about opening and developing a stronger connection to nature, to spirit, and to our highest self. To re-establish this ancient and vital path, we must recognize that the power of the plant kingdom lies not in its ability to alter consciousness or to heal, but rather in its silence and simplicity of being.
— Certified Herbalist, Courtney L. Hall

The miracle is not to walk on water. The miracle is to walk on the green Earth in the present moment, to appreciate the peace and beauty that are available right now. Peace is all around us – in the world and in nature – and within us, in our bodies and in our spirits. Once we learn to touch this peace, we will be healed and transformed. It is not a matter of faith; it is a matter of practice. We only need to find ways to bring our body and mind back to the present moment so we can touch what is refreshing, healing, and wondrous, within us and around us.”
— Thich Nhat Hanh

Karen Lee BS, MBA, RN

As owner of Sang Lee Farms for over 35 years I have become passionate about the food we grow, and how to enjoy vibrant health eating fresh seasonal foods. Incorporating the fresh organic vegetables from our farm into specialty prepared foods for our retail shop has only added to that knowledge and passion.  My background in health care working with sick and dying patients as a registered nurse has particularly convinced me of the importance of food as the foundation of our health and well being. To educate and share this passion with others is now my focus and mission.
