Welcome to the Blue Ridge School of Herbal Medicine

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 cultures from across the globe including Chinese medicine, Ayurveda and native plant medicine. 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.
