"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.” - Courtney Lee Hall

 "Since meeting Courtney this past fall, I've completed three of her classes.  I'm in awe of her

unlimited enthusiasm, the depth and scope of her knowledge and most importantly, "her open heart". 

She seems to never tire of sharing information. I've incorporated plant medicine in my life on a daily bases

with beneficial teas and healthy menu planning.  Again, thank you." -Mary R.  (Intensive student)

intermediate herbal studies

**Thank you! This series is full! **

Open only to students who have completed the beginner 6-week series, or study of equal value, with instructors permission.

Yahoo! Time to get dirty! This hands-on 4-week series is an extension of the 6-week intensive.  We will be outdoors for each class, planting, harvesting, digging, making medicine, and connecting deeply to the living spirits of the plant kingdom. As we will be working with and learning from several plants growing abundantly at Sang Lee Farms, each student will also choose one plant to connect with on a deeper, more personal level. We will focus greatly on plant-spirit communication, (sitting in meditation with several live plants), sustainable harvesting, and intuitive medicine making. Students will also take it a step further this series, learning how to identify and treat certain ailments in one another, even making medicine for the other.  Here students will be paired up, and each week will spend some time healing one another from a clinical and intuitive position.
