Neurological and Emotional Health is intertwined with every aspect of of your state of being.

Our culture tends to separate emotional health from physiological health, and even from neurological health. That's not our perspective! 

We see the deep interconnectedness of every aspect of our health - both in our individual bodies but also in our communities and our society.

Learning how to deeply support your neurological and emotional health will help you live more comfortably in your own skin, and help you keep an even keel in times of stress.

In this course, you'll learn how to:

  • build strong nervous system function even after chronic illnesses like MS or fibromyalgia
  • support nervous health at the cellular level - including the relationship between nerves and hormones - and how to establish balance so that you feel steady 
  • assess emotional health issues so that you can choose the right herbs for the situation at hand
  • manage pain holistically
  • provide herbal support for issues like depression, anxiety, ADHD, and Autistic Spectrum Disorders


The course includes over 22 hours of video instruction, as well as PDF handouts, quizzes and homework assignments, and more - plus weekly Q&A discussions where you can talk directly with Ryn and Katja.

"I researched different online herbalism courses for about two months and am so glad I found you two. There is so much more than just the material to this course. Because you teach everything in videos, and then with the live Q&A sessions every week, I feel like this is more of an in-person experience than an online course and I love that."

  • Lifetime access - so you can review the content as many times as you like, forever!

  • Weekly live Q&A sessions with Katja and Ryn - to ask your questions directly, live and in person! (They're even archived, in case you miss one!) This course has 1 year live Q&A support.

  • Ask questions anytime - 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, usually within 24 hours

  • No-risk money back guarantee - no questions asked!

OMG Thank you!

I have always felt like it should be possible to deal with stress and anxiety naturally, but there are so many "natural" claims and it felt impossible to sort them all out. This course is making it much easier to see a clear path, to understand why things work, and to know what I need to do to take care of myself, myself!

22+ hours of in-depth videos, downloadable quick guides, live Q&A sessions, and more - all for $225!

Learn with a community of support

We're here for you every step of the way!

I want to join in!

Your Teachers

Two heads are better than one!


Katja & Ryn
Katja & Ryn

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.
