Hawthorn Academy of Healing Herbs

The Hawthorn Academy of Healing Herbs offers a variety of both in-person and online courses in herbal medicine.

The objective of the Hawthorn Academy is to empower people to become self-reliant, self responsible and self-sufficient in caring for their health and the health of their families.  There is also great encouragement to forge a deeper connection with the Sacredness of Nature and our Plant Relations. In this way, these courses are truly holistic and take into consideration the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health of all.  Working with students to share my love of plants and of Nature is such an honour.  It allows me the chance to enjoy some of my favourite things all at once  – plants, gardening, making medicine and teaching!

At the Hawthorn Academy we are working with the idea that plants are sentient, intelligent and magical.  By working with plants we can expect deeper, more lasting healing and we come to recognise that the natural world is full of magic!  The Wise Woman tradition of healing includes working with the Sun and the Moon whilst in a state of reciprocity with the plants.

Throughout the year there are several courses held in person, live at the Hawthorn Academy; as well as courses where you can study online.  The online “Introduction to Herbal Medicine” is an excellent foundation course, giving you an insight into herbal or plant medicine as well as lots of practical skills.  This course can be followed by other courses that are more focused on particular health issues.  See below for all the courses on offer. You can choose a course for a specific health issue or for delving deeper into a relationship within the world of plants.

On February 1st 2022, the first online herbal course – AN INTRODUCTION TO HERBAL MEDICINE was launched! This is a six month course consisting of video lessons, demonstrations and lectures as well as PDFs, Plant Monographs and more.  I am so excited and thrilled to be teaching this course as it gives me great pleasure to share my knowledge and experience.  Have a look at it here danusirishherbgarden.com/product/an-introduction-to-herbal-medicine/

To ensure that as many people as possible an afford to do this course, I am asking for a minimum donation of €250 or you can donate €300 or €350 depending upon what you can afford. Alternatively, contact me to arrange a payment plan.
