Therapeutic Herbalism

ITM has developed a number of opportunities to be introduced to the inspiring world of herbal medicine. Our Therapeutic Herbalism programs appeal to both those wishing to pursue a career as a Clinical Herbalist, as well as those passionate about caring for themselves and their families through natural, herbal ways as a Community-Family Herbalist. Our unique program provides the practical, hands-on experience and skills necessary to maintain a joyful relationship with the plant medicines, with a comprehensive foundation in theoretical studies.

“Just as the flowers grow from the earth, so the remedy grows in the hands of the physician. The remedy is nothing but a seed that must develop into that which it is destined to be.”

Every breath is a giveaway dance between you and the plants.

 

We have launched one of North America's most comprehensive trainings in Herbal Medicine with the most experienced and talented practitioners in the field. This unique program provides you with training in Herbology - from a local and global perspective, incorporating the traditions of Ayurveda,  Chinese and Tibetan Medicine and emphasizes an integrative and systemic approach to health. Students immerse themselves plant wisdom as well as the essentials of nutrition, therapeutic relationships and biomedical sciences.  

 

To forget how how to dig the earth, and to tend the soil is to forget ourselves.

Happy Birthday!

Field Trips

Throughout the spring and summer terms, students get out into the classroom of nature and receive first-hand experiences in working with and learning from the herbs. From herb walks and visits to local herb farms, to   wildcrafting expeditions - there is nothing like being in our natural state of learning and living and connecting.

ITM Herbal Garden

We are so blessed to have the opportunity to steward a tiny plot of land just behind the ITM building, where we care for the plants, and local inhabitants in the area. Each year we open our garden with a special ceremony, honouring the soil and the plant medicine, and learn to cultivate and care for the plants and herbs seasonally.

Medicine Making

Using the most sustainable and ethical dispensary & wildcrafting practices possible in our Vegan herbal dispensary, students engage in the art and science of medicine making. From tinctures to salves, to syrups and cough drops, to personalized formulas, our students learn all the necessary skills for developing their herbal product lines.

There is no greater gift you can give or receive than to honor your calling. It's why you were born. And how you become most truly alive.
