What our apprentices have to say...
"This course is amazing. The teaching is brilliant as we get to experience Kazz and Fiona's passion for the plants and make friends with the plants ourselves by way of sight, touch, taste and intuition.
I'm much more aware of the seasons and what is available when and where. I never buy Vitamin C now - just use good old rosehips (enough to last the year until the next harvest). In fact, my essential oils, plant oils, balms and tinctures are the only medicine chest I need. Perfect."
"The Sistas teach in a way that encourages you to engage all your senses, and by the end of the course, I was familiar with a host of herbs, where they grew, what they look like, how they feel, taste, smell, how they interacted with me energetically. I was even on first name basis with some of them!!!
The Sistas with their wealth of experience will take you on a journey which can be challenging and fun in equal measure. I completed the course with a new sense of respect for the Herbiverse!"
"I am in love with the plant world. One of the many benefits of my Sensory Herbalism course was that it pushed my creative boundaries. When studying a plant we are often asked to describe their character as though they were a person. I find this quite challenging at times but a great way to really understand the plant."
"In terms of teaching style the Seed SistAs are able to impart in-depth wisdoms, including their extensive scientific and intuitive knowledge mixed with practical application of identifying, picking herbs and creating medicine with them. We get to draw and really get to know the herbs on an intimate basis. On our year-long sensual journey my relationship with nature deepened, I have come to realise I cannot heal others without looking after myself first. The work is important because the Sistas are engaging with the world on a micro level, working with individuals to heal, and on a macro level by creating change in the environment, respecting the earth and herbs and creating a network of earth lovers working with their communities."
