If you want to learn herbs, find a mentor

The one thing I wish I had done earlier in my career is finding a reliable

knowledgeable mentor at the very start of my herbal studies.

  • Your own personal guide and teacher, someone who will honestly evaluate where you are at in your herbal journey and then encourage and support you to set attainable goals and help you achieve them.

  • A mentor who can answer your questions and quell your concerns.

  • A mentor who can help you build confidence, because he has traveled the herbal path and was able to support himself and raise three children practicing herbalism.

  • A mentor who owned and operated an herbal store, clinic and dispensary for 18 years and helped thousands of clients and customers.

  • He will guide you in how you can apply and grow your own herbal healing knowledge and practice.

  • Stay connected to the seasons and alerted to which herbs are ready to be harvested and why you would want them in your medicine collection.

  • Be guided to the best way to harvest and preserve your herbs? What are the most effective ways to prepare and use them.

  • Be part of a dynamic group collective of healers who are devoted to bettering themselves and to helping each other and support each others learning, practice and healing.

Join now and you will grow and blossom under the personal guidance of master herbalist and herbal Elder, Don Ollsin who has almost 5 decades of experience in the herbal field.

Don Ollsin:

A prolific writer, professional herbalist (one of only 250 in North America registered with the American Herbalist Guild -AHG) and process oriented teacher since 1970, Don Ollsin now wishes to pass down the experience of his lifetime to a new generation of budding herbalists. Because of his love of the earth, his students and teaching he is now offering a new mentoring service for those who wish to learn the art of living with awareness and herbs and\or become professional herbalists registered with the AHG.

To him, herbs are not just another means to a medical end; he views them more as his friends, as allies. As creations of beauty. As an herbal elder he has been teaching about herbs and incorporating earth sciences such as shamanism and ayurveda that directly connect students to the plants the elements and the dreamtime. As well as modern science like the extracellular matrix and process oriented psychology (dreambody) for over 45 years. He recently (2013) attained a masters degree in Environmental Education and Communication and he is now better equipped to help, not just the planet, which he cares so passionate about, but also his earth loving students. True health is achieved when both your inner and outer environments are life sustaining. When we employ natural remedies we not only benefit the person but also the earth. He is deeply interested in sustainable medicine.

As a mentor, his goal is not just to guide you through the motions; he will be responsible for your educational growth in various fields like grassroots herbalism, Ayurveda, shamanism, dreambody, extracellular matrix, biology of perception and the zero point field (sentience). Mentoring, unlike coaching, is a deeper process that focuses on the growth of an individual not just in one area of life but in all areas of life.
Essentially, by being your mentor, he will also be your counselor to guide you through the process of self-actualization and help you to overcome your challenges, fears and conflicts. Mentorship is a long-term commitment between the mentor and the mentee, allowing time to impart and document learning\training. It will involve everything concerning your lucid healer and\or professional herbalist development. Don’s mentoring process is geared towards providing guidance from his personal healing experience of more than 45 years.

If learning herbs, find a mentor.

The one thing I wish I had done earlier in my career is finding a reliable knowledgeable mentor at the very start of my herbal studies.

Learning herbs need not be hard, boring, lonely, scary, or complicated. Being mentored makes it exciting, gets you there faster and easier, keeps you focused on your goal and helps you achieve it. Find a mentor.

Traditionally, herbal knowledge has been transmitted orally from teacher to student. A seasoned mature mentor transmits much of his\her wisdom through direct contact. I offer personalized one on one sessions with each mentee, as well group work.

Only when you seriously and consistently apply yourself to your herbal studies will you become a professional herbalist. A mentor can help keep you on task. You are not going to the advance much in your herbal studies or practice without a mentor and positive group support.

A mentor will get to know you and your goals and offer clear guidance on how you can grow into the kind of herbalist you want to be.

We all go through tough personal issues from time to time. A mentor will be there to comfort you when needed or give you encouragement, motivation and challenge when that is what is needed.

A mentor will not only show you what to learn, they will also help you learn how to learn. We are not taught how to learn in school. I have found learning how to learn to be one of the most rewarding pursuits of my life and I love sharing it with my mentees. A mentor can make learning fun and rewarding. Learning herbs can be rewarding, profitable, healing and enriching.

A seasoned mentor knows the ins and outs of the professional and personal herbal terrains and can help you find opportunities and avoid pitfalls.

A mentor will guide you to the resources that you didn't or wouldn't even know existed like books, trustworthy websites and important teachers.

A mentor can save you a lot of time and money by keeping you focused on your goals while using your life as your training ground.

We need a whole new generation of herbalists because:

Herbs are very important, medicinally, culturally and socio-economically.

·      Herbs heal gently and powerfully.

·      Herbs are beautiful and inspiring.

·      Herbs are necessary and important part of our healthcare.

·      Herbs are safe, available and can cultivated or wild crafted.

Herbs are medicine for the people. They cannot be patented and owned by corporations. Herbs are grassroots medicine and we need grassroots herbalists, professionally trained to do herbal wellness consultations and recognized as members of the American Herbalist Guild to continue this vital tradition. Be a part of keeping herbalism alive.
