Our mission is to offer a quality audio and video journey into the art and science of herbal medicine and natural healing. We offer a high quality herbal video learning series, audio course, field guide and content from two of North Americas most passionate, educated, and experienced herbal healers. 

We’ll explore the history of healing, the role of Herbalism presently as well as it’s great future importance. One key question to start with is - what is medicine or healing really and what role can the herbalist play in such a process? Is it limited to our view of chemistry and the mechanisms of the body?  We also explore some essentials in natural healing such as; seeing the body as an ecosystem, the role of Vital Energy or Qi and the true potential of sound health.  There is a detailed look at the elements of earth, water, fire, air, and ether, as well as how we're literally made up of a balance of them all. Most of all this is a journey towards greater health and vitality, and a greater sense of connection to the natural world we are a part of.  You will find professionally made videos and audio classes and, of course, a full screening of our award winning documentary film Our Common Roots - Unveiling Our Global Traditions of Healing with Plants included.
