Welcome to the Blue Ridge School of Herbal Medicine

Applications for the 2018 school year open July 15th!


Plants are our life; everything on earth exists because plants have the magic ability to transform sunlight into energy. Every cell of our body comes from plants, even if it came from animals that ate plants. They have been our food and our medicine for as long as humans have been on the planet. Recognizing our connection to plant life helps us to see our connection to all that is, and with awareness and respect for all life, we can see the interconnectedness of all things on this green planet.

The goal of the Blue Ridge School is to teach students how to see in a new way, using the vision of traditional medicines from across the globe, blending Chinese and Euro-American herb traditions. And ultimately that vision is this - treat the person with the disease, not just the disease the person has. Simply said, but the knowledge, wisdom and intuition behind this paradigm shift take months to learn, and a lifetime of practice. Ultimately it is a new way of looking at life. The journey begins here, with our Herbalist Training Programs.

Be Well, and Good Medicine,

​​BRSHM Diversity and Inclusivity Statement

Botanists and Herbalists know that a diverse ecosystem is a healthy ecosystem. In that spirit and keeping in mind the current political climate, we would like to share our school's statement on diversity and inclusivity.

The Blue Ridge School of Herbal Medicine honors diversity, and we do not discriminate based on race, sex, gender expression, religion, disability, sexual orientation, immigration status, military status, or anything else that divides us as people. We believe that everyone deserves access to health care and education, and we are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment to all students, staff, clients, customers, and vendors.

We actively encourage our students to be aware of how others experience the world, to become conscious of their own privilege, and to empathize with all beings.




 
CoreyPine also offers consultations for personalized assessment and healing.
