2) The Advanced Apprenticeship Year 2 ( for those who have completed a full year program or more in Herbal Studies)
This program meets on alternate Thursdays (twice per month) and is aimed to deepen the knowledge of students as they work towards becoming community/clinical herbalists. While we get more clinical and explore the body and what ails, The Self Care and Deep Nourishment theme explored in great detail during the Beginner Apprenticeship will continue to feature strongly as it is my belief that this is the foundation of good health! The student will come away from this program with several detailed protocols for treating common and not so common ailments and will feel more comfortable using their materia medica developed in year 1.
