While I do often offer classes myself, I am always thrilled to continue learning more – and Portland is rich with experienced herbalists and educators I am eager to study with. Yesterday was my first day as a student in the Advanced Clinical Program with Erico Schleicher of The Elderberry School of Botanical Medicine. I love it already! Erico generously weaves knowledge, experience, and intuition with such ease, and truly invites his students to journey together and collaborate in a way that honors where we are coming from and where we wish to go.
I’m lucky to be studying with two of my former coworkers from Fettle, as well as other talented herbalists! I’m a little nervous – this is the first school program I’ve attended since 2011 – I’ll have to brush up on my study skills!
