I've been looking for a program that helps fully immerse myself into the wonderful world of Herbalism. There are so many options out there, it's easy to get overwhelmed. The concept of plant energetics that's discussed in the 4 Keys to Holistic Herbalism course hit me like a ton of bricks- in a good way. It's like i got my fingertip into a tiny opening of an unknown plane and am finally able to wiggle it open enough that a whole dimension of understanding can come flooding through. That's a fancy way of saying, the concept Katja and Ryn are sharing in a very fun and loving manner is something i get and will be able to work with. I love their statements that "if you can watch TV and boil water, you can do Herbalism". The videos are easy to follow and contain a ton information, the PDF provided after each is super helpful and the prizing of their courses will allow me to seriously embark on this wonderful plant based journey :0BRead Less

SO GOOD. My favorite course within this program is, 'Herbalism As a Lifestyle,' and within it, my favorite quote: "Herbalists are more interested in health than diseases. We're really interested in what health looks like and learning how to built it, support it, and maintain it." The 4 Keys to Holisitic Herbalism deeply resonated. For too long I've felt very alone as I've watched countless loved ones become chronically ill and go through the medical system, only to become worse. I've been piecing things together on my own. This course gave me hope and excitement -- I've found my people! I can't wait to learn how to give others hope, too.Read Less

Ryn and Katja - you work so well together, responding one to another to cover concepts conversationally. The content introduces and explains the concepts well; adhering to the focus of each lesson. You infuse the videos with laughter, smiles, and wit, in addition to a clearly articulating content and conveying your solid grounding in concepts. A wonderful course to connect with individuals and to enable the participant to reflect on the 4 pillars of holistic herbalism while contemplating the 'right' next steps. The course layout is easy to navigate and is intuitively designed. The inclusion of audio file for ease of access for folks who listen while whatevering. The interactive discussion board affords student participation. The link to articles and resources provides space for deeper dives into content. The pdf files provide a succinct reference for discussion points. I feel like I am seen and heard, even in the internet mediated asynchronous platform.Read Less

Two heads are better than one!
Katja & Ryn almost always teach together. They each have particular talents and areas of interest, and their perspectives on certain issues are quite different! Together, they convey a fuller picture of the realities of herbal theory & practice than either one could do alone.
Katja is an herbalist and teacher working to help people rebuild their relationships with their bodies and their own ability to heal. She’s been in practice for nearly 20 years, but it all began with a desire to make her own “fancy tea” at home instead of paying high prices for imported blends at specialty stores. She’s kept that do-it-yourself ethic close to her heart.
Ryn has been a practicing herbalist since 2010. He came to herbalism by way of martial arts, where his first experiences with herbs were focused on getting back into the game and becoming more flexible, adaptable, and resilient. Passing that experience on to others is what keeps him motivated every day.
Together, Katja and Ryn teach everyone from children to elders, as well as pharmacy students from Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Northeastern University School of Pharmacy, where they both serve as associate faculty. Ryn and Katja are the authors of Herbal Medicine for Beginners, and the creators of the weekly Holistic Herbalism Podcast.
Now you can access our carefully structured curriculum that guides you to develop good foundational habits which will serve you well as a student, a practitioner, professional, or simply a human looking to become your healthiest self. Don't wait!
