Every week for two years, I had a date with my teacher, David Winston, the herbs & myself of course I was also Blessed to be with other students who were journeying down the same road- who have become like family to me).  This class provided me with what I needed to know to use my herbs in a more knowledgeable way. I learned the science behind the herbs, materia medica, how to prepare my herbs appropriately; I learned how to create a comprehensive herbal formula to support my client’s health using the concepts of energetics of the herbs as well as the tastes of the herbs. I learned how to do this safely & confidently! I loved the fact that we had two projects to as well as part of our requirements for obtaining our diplomas; it helped me to marry my two loves of Midwifery & Herbs. When I have a question, I still review that project with a smile on my face & gratitude for having done these projects. I have a strong foundation to speak from-this developed as a result of sitting in class every Tuesday and absorbing knowledge- not found in a book, for David is always researching and sharing his newly found knowledge with his students.
