Year Two of Cecemmana is to help students build a deeper connection to the plants and to their ancestral medicine practices. Our intention is to support each person’s self-healing journey while building an energetic foundation to walk in the world as a healer. Students will strengthen their skills to use herbal medicine to support themselves, their families and their friends.
Students who complete this year will be able to work as herbal gardeners, medicine makers, product makers, teachers, and community health advocates.
This is not a clinical herbal training program, but it is a good foundation for those who wish to pursue becoming a professional clinical herbalist. The American Herbalist Guild requires 1600 hours to become a Registered Herbalist and all class hours at Ancestral Apothecary can be counted towards these hours.
Ancestral Apothecary does not offer clinical herbalist training at this time. If you wish to find a clinical school in your area, check out the American’ Herbalist Guild’s list of herbal schools or here to see a guide to getting an herbal education.
