An herbalist is someone who lives at the edge between the world of people and the world of the plants. We are stewards of the medicinal plants, of the natural world, and of the Earth herself. Herbalists connect people with plants so that they may partner with them on a healing journey. Herbalists also train others who wish to learn this sacred craft. It is our sacred joy and honor to do the work we do. The path of the herbalist is, ultimately, a sacred journey.
Sacred Journey School of Herbalism reflects Ginger Webb’s deep love for the plants and for humanity; her study with the late great herbalist Michael Moore; her years of experience making plant-based medicines; her explorations of east Indian philosophies including Ayurveda, and the chakra system; her geeky passion for botany, wild plants, and plant families; her reverence for the wisdom of the ancients; and her belief that we all have access to the healing wisdom of the plant world simply by virtue of the fact that we are alive and share consciousness with all life.
In addition to the programs and classes taught by Ginger Webb, we offer classes throughout the year taught by other herbalists and teachers. To stay in the loop about new upcoming classes, please subscribe to our email newsletter.
“Studying with Sacred Journey School of Herbalism under teacher/maestra Ginger Webb is akin to taking an interactive higher education lecture/lab and to sitting with my caring elders. In both settings, learning about the richness of native and other plants for herbal medicine making and healing. Deep respect for the earth, each other and sharing knowledge across cultures are hallmarks of this study and practice. This is our shared birthright regardless of gender, ethnicity, race, economic or political identification. I’m grateful for the opportunity to realize a long-term dream through SJS inclusivity values and reparation scholarships. This program is rooted in botanical, physical and energetic herbal plant properties for healing oneself, family, and community. It’s for me, you, and us.”
