Materia Medica is the way herbalists refer to their “dictionary” or “tool box” of plants.

It is, literally, the “medicinal materials” – herbal allies ready to assist in times of need!

Materia Medica is the way herbalists refer to their “dictionary” or “tool box” of plants. It is, literally, the “medicinal materials” – herbal allies ready to assist in times of need! 

The most important part of herbalism is the plants themselves! Get in-depth with more than 89 of the most versatile and prominent plants in contemporary herbalism. 

Ryn Midura and Katja Swift make learning herbalism as easy as watching TV!

This program includes videos about each plant as well as PDF handouts, introducing you to each plant as if they were a new friend (they are!). You'll learn all the ways that we work with each herb and how it can help you. You'll learn when it's appropriate to work with each herb, and if there are any contraindications. Detailed, up-close photographs will help you learn to identify that plant in the wild.

This course typically takes 8 weeks to complete, but you can watch the videos at your own pace, and re-watch them at any time.

We want your experience to be as close to “being there in person” as possible, and we want to accommodate as many different styles of learning as possible. That’s why we also provide:

  • PDF materials - if you like to follow along on paper
  • MP3 files - so you can review the content while you commute, workout, garden, ... anytime!
  • Direct access to Ryn and Katja - we're always just a click away: you can ask any questions in the integrated discussion forum, and we're committed to personally answering your questions within 24 hours
  • Weekly live Q&A sessions - to get some face time and direct feedback from your teachers

Feel confident with a whole toolbox full of herbs that you can turn to when you need them!

Let's get started!

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.

    I am no spring chicken :) As such, deciding to study herbalism at a later stage in my life was something that, although I knew was the path for me, I was highly skeptical of. I looked through so many schools and various courses and each one sounded great! Then I came across Ryn and Katja. As soon as I watched the first introduction video, something clicked. I saved up and bought this first module, the Materia Medica. I have loved every minute of every video. I am so pleased with the way they both teach and I simply cannot sing enough praises for the two of them. Their vast knowledge and true passion for what they do is evident in this course. I cannot wait to venture further in my own studies.

    I learned so much in this module. I'm so glad I decided to take it as a part of the herbalism 101 bundle. Katja and Ryn make learning extremely accessible and I appreciate how sensitive they are to environmental, social and economic injustices when talking about herbalism. I'm looking forward to the medicine making portion of the bundle and feel like this gave me a really good foundation. I highly recommend it!

    The Holistic Herbalism Materia Medica Course was awesome! Sooooo many plants, I found I would learn about a plant then walk outside my front door and see it growing. Ryn and Katja made the content enjoyable and easy to understand and really fueled a desire and got me stoked to know and understand the plants more. I am looking forward to taking the Community Herbalist Program soon. Grace Bisaro
