250-hour Certification in Foundations of Herbal Medicine
Online 150-hour Certification in Foundations of Herbal Medicine
Level II Herbal Certification (Coming May 2019)
1. 250-hour Certification in Foundations of Herbal Medicine Duration: April 16-October 19, 2019 (6 months) Tuition: $2,995.00 + tax With nature as our guide, we will navigate through the year using seasonal foods to keep healthy, and herbal remedies to treat common ailments. We will take an in depth look at different body systems and learn what herbs support each system. In addition to a Western approach to herbal medicine, this program incorporates the Chinese Five Element theory and Curanderismo, a folk healing system from Mexico.
During this course you will learn medicine making, botany for herbalists, herbal therapeutics, herbal materia medica and ethical wildcrafting. We believe that the best way to connect with the plants is to meet them in their natural environment so we take three weekend camping trips to different ecosystems near Santa Fe where you will learn how to identify local medicinal plants and how to responsibly collect them from the wild.
2. Online 150-hour Certification in Foundations of Herbal Medicine Duration: Open enrolment (12 months) Tuition: $895.00 The Milagro School of Herbal Medicine is offering an online distance learning program designed to teach the foundational principles of herbal medicine, medicine making, botany, and ethical wildcrafting. We used our in-person program as a template for developing the online program curriculum and format. Our online program is structured similar to our in-person course in that we emphasize the seasons throughout the course, there are four areas of study, and we have a similar timeline, syllabus, and requirements as the in-person certification.
The online program differs from our in-person program in that you do it at your own pace, over a 12 month period as opposed to a tightly structured, in-person program, from the convenience of your home in an independent approach. The online program averages about 3 hours of time per week, but because you are managing your own schedule, you can shape your weekly time commitment to what works best for you, and to accommodate your schedule. There is a difference in cost of the in-person and online program to consider. The online program is a multimedia, high quality program with audio, video, and slideshow presentations so that you will have a personal feel while doing the courses from a distance.
