What our apprentices have to say
So far, the course by the Seed Sistas is like a door opening on a new world, so much more exciting than the old one. The plants become characters with wonderful personalities which talk to me as beloved friends. And then without noticing, a bit of Fiona and Karen’s knowledge starts to sink in, principles and techniques take place in my head. My first patient is myself, and then my family, and experimenting with recipes and tinctures and wonderful new ideas, is becoming a delight. Most of all, i feel that I belong somewhere in this amazing universe.I look forward to the next years, hungry to experiment and discover more.
Thank you to Fiona and Karen for being such wonderful, caring, sensitive and efficient teachers.
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.
When I met the Seed SistAs I was just developing an interest in herbal medicine and had been seeking out courses throughout the country to develop my knowledge. After spending just a few hours with Karen and Fiona in their herbal medicine workshop I was captivated by their passion, knowledge and hands-on delivery.
This is the only herbal course I know that speaks my language. I searched for a long time for a course that allowed me to really dance with the plants and understand their rhythm. I love the way Fiona and Karen weave essential and diverse information into the fabric of these amazing workshops. I am coming to the end of my foundation course and just want to keep on learning.
