Sensory Solutions

Practitioner Training

The two-year Sensory Herb Practitioner Training follows on from our Foundation Year.  It is designed to deepen your knowledge of plants and the human body and train you to become a confident practitioner of plant medicine.

 

 

 

Would you like to support people with their health issues in a holistic way?

Or add herbal medicine to your existing healing practice?

We invite you to refine your knowledge and further your understanding of the root causes of disease.  Learn how to combine herbs into tried and tested remedies.  Become a professional Sensory Herbalist and expand your client base.

Herbal medicine has transformed our lives, our health and given us tools for life. We have caught each other’s babies in birth.  We bring our children up on herbal remedies and now delight in teaching anyone who will listen!

We have discovered a growing community of like-minded earth lovers and are delighted to be able to share in this journey.

 

What we offer:

 An expert’s practical toolkit of recipes, diagnostic tools and your own Materia medica.

A framework to practice as a Sensory Herb Practitioner

200 hours of contact time over 8 seasonal weekends

300 hours homework /self-guided study

Professional Herbal Medicine education that is infused with art, creativity and ritual

Tried and tested teaching – the program was established in March 2009

Beautiful location with a herb garden

Accommodation and delicious vegetarian food

 

The practitioner course makes available a whole system of medicine developed by the Seed SistAs over many years.  The course is designed to give you the confidence, skills and knowledge to develop your own practice of herbal medicine.

You will get to know your own personal materia medica intimately.  You will be growing and harvesting herbs and creating your own beautiful remedies.  The course gives you recipes and a diagnostic toolkit that have been tried and tested on literally thousands of people with positive results.

This isn’t a course that spoon-feeds you information; you won't just be sat in a classroom copying notes.  This course is designed to make you delve into yourself and begin to tap into your inner wisdom to intuit and understand the natural world around you.  You will also be required to work with and observe the land and study the propagation and growth of herbs.

We have a herb garden with over 50 medicinal plants at our disposal and the horticultural aspect is very important to our work.  Each weekend consists of roughly 50% fieldwork – working outside or directly with the plants themselves.  And 50% theoretical work during which time we shall be guiding you gently through each system of the human body and how the emotional, physical and more ethereal bodies interconnect.

We will be observing root causes of any imbalance or dis’ease’ and investigating how you treat people completely holistically.  Your medicine toolkit will go beyond your materia medica to include nutrition, meditation and breathing exercises, movement and ritual.   You will have the opportunity to observe and participate in patient consultations, and you will build up your own case studies – seeing patients is part of your home study.

Our philosophy integrates the power of intention and belief into everything that we offer.  All medicines are created with deep concentration and observation of the astrology, soil, location, other quality ingredients and the focus of the medicine is amplified with mantras and affirmations.  This is taught in addition to and alongside modern scientific knowledge of anatomy, physiology and phytopharmacy.

What our apprentices say

 

         Kristin Walker, Sensory Herb Practitioner

I found the Seed Sistas to be the most loving, patient, knowledgeable and skilled people I have ever met. They inspire me to be a completely better and more thriving version of myself. They are vivacious and infectious in their approach and zest for life, living both honorably and ecstatically, and I simply wanted to spend as much time with them as I could.   I have finished the apprenticeship being completely empowered to control and navigate the course of my health. I have come to a deep understanding and love for my body, and its interconnectedness with the amazing life and natural world around me. Every day now in someway revolves around herbs. Every part of my routine is connected to them. Every journey is filled with greeting old and new friends, the herbs, and connecting them to the loved ones and clients in my life. Intimate connections over and over, like a beautiful spiral.

                                                           

        

         Chris Gooch, Yr 2 Practitioner Training

This course is amazing. The teaching is brillliant as we get to experience Karen and Fiona's passion for the plants and make friends with the plants ourselves by way of sight, touch, taste and intuition.

I'm much more aware of the seasons and what is available when and where. I never buy Vitamin C now - just use good old rosehips (enough to last the year until the next harvest). In fact, my essential oils, plant oils, balms and tinctures are the only medicine chest I need. Perfect.
