The Herbal Path Program 

Total Program Cost: $2555

Are you ready to embrace the inner healer that was always meant to be? Join Clinical Registered Herbalist, Holistic Nutritionist, Biologist, and Energetic Healer, Anna Marie Beauchemin, on a 7-month journey to ignite the spark of healing intuition and herbal wisdom that we were all innately born with, using traditional methods and practices.

In this immersive 7-month program we will learn to walk the Herbal Path using herbs, foods, seasonality, and earth-centered herbal practices to nourish our lives and the lives of those we love. Together we will learn the art of home-based herbal healing, herbal gardening, cooking,  plant medicine making, traditional practices, and above all, how to connect to our own inner wisdom and intution when approaching our health and lives. Classes will take place in a historic farmhouse and students will get to experience the old ways of learning in herbal gardens  and making plant medicines in the rustic farmhouse kitchen in our experiential lessons.

If you have felt the sparks of becoming an herbalist deep down inside you, join me in this transformative course that works to uncover-and-step-into this traditional way of knowing, being, and claiming the birthright as your own.

An Herbal Apprenticeship

The traditional way of learning the art and science of herbalism, an Herbal Apprenticeship is a unique opportunity to work alongside a trained herbalist to study their unique and individual style of the craft. This program will be rooted in Anna's own teachings in herbalism (see below for experience and training) and will focus on earth-based and intuitive knowledge, current research and modern scientific uses of herbs, and traditional botanical teachings. This immersive and hands on 7-month program will follow Anna on her hebal path, and hopefully, inspire you to walk your own. 

Class meets monthly on Thursday evenings for 2.5 hours in-person and includes both lecture and hands on experiences. In addition to the classroom, we will meet for 3-4 morning weekend field trips over the course of program, including medicine making intensives and field studies. Students will have acces to the instructor during monthly office hours (virtual) and an online community to connect with their peers throughout the month. The course will include homework, self-paced at-home herbal study prompts, monthly herbal deep dives, and a capstone project due at the end of the program. Certificates of achievment and a graduation gathering will complete our time together right at the April 2025 new moon - the perfect time to launch into your new path.

About Your Teacher + The Historic Classroom 

Anna Marie Beauchemin, RH(AHG) is a Clinical Registered Herbalist with the American Herbalist Guild, Holistic Nutriitionist, Conservation Biologist (and former working field biolgoist). Herbal lessons will include both modern science and traditional knowing. If you've been searching for an in-person, down-to-earth, integrative program to help you start on your Herbal Path, than this program was built for you and is born out of my own discovery of how to become an herbalist in the modern world.

We will be studying together at the historic Rodgers Ranch Heritage Center, a beautiful, old, and historic Farmhouse located in Pleasant Hill, California. The farmhouse is adjacent to both an herb garden run by the Herb Society of North America and the Rodger's Ranch Urban. This old home has the charm and magic you would expect from a historical treasure, and is the perfect place to travel back in time and revisit this ancestral way of being in the world.
