Based in St. Petersburg, FL, Renee Crozier RH(AHG) has been practicing herbalism and traditional healing for over 20 years. Her family has lived in Florida for four generations and continues to live off the land here today. She is a protector of plants and indigenous traditions. This program was designed to immerse students in herbal studies through weekend intensives and a supervised, hands-on intern clinic every Tuesday evening. Traditions School of Herbal Studies offers one of the few herbal training programs in the US that guarantees hands-on clinical experience during your enrollment.

Students have access to our on-site Chinese and Western apothecary, which has more than 500 crude herbs, powders, tinctures, and pre-made formulas available. Herbalists-in-training will also have the ability to reference our herbal library, which consists of over 400 texts from both the Eastern and Western tradition. With this program, students have the chance to advance at their own pace through independent study, homework assignments, and herb walks offered throughout the year. Students attend once monthly weekend intensives for eight months and, begin taking part in our Tuesday night clinic. This program has been designed by highly trained herbalists, and prepares students for professional clinical practice upon its completion.

Curriculum includes:
Botany for Herbalists
Herbal Actions & Energetics
The Ethics of Herbalism
Advanced Herbal Preparation
Plant Spirit Medicine
Overnight Field Study
Ethical Wildcrafting Practices
Barefoot Doctoring
Upon completion of this program, students professionally see clients, design herbal formulas, and more. Students learn the skills to create their own product lines, work with established herbal companies, consult with other healthcare providers, and help friends and family with lifelong wellness.  The fields of herbalism and natural healthcare are expanding rapidly, and more opportunities arise every day!
