At Vital Ways Institute,
our mission is to guide you to learning how to heal yourself and others naturally in mind, body and spirit, with the healing power of nature including herbalism, food as medicine, and holistic lifestyle.
We believe that we’d be a healthier, and more resilient community if there was an herbalist in every home, and community herbalists in every town. We think that an essential feature of a vibrant community is to have access to natural healing and healers, who are skilled in using the local, free, abundant medicine that surrounds them.
And as the current time shows, we are in more dire need of Herbalists in Every Home, and Community Medicine Holders than ever.
So at Vital Ways Institute our primary mission is to be a Healer’s Training Institute.
In our 1-to 4 year herbalist certificate programs, our students don’t just learn about healing plants, or hear us talk about plants, they personally learn the skill of healing, and form deep relationships to each remedy that is based in traditional wisdom, cutting-edge perspectives and is grounded in personal, hands-on experience with the plants that we provide, even for online students.
