Online Course - Beyond Chamomile
Herbs for stress, anxiety, and sleep.
A self paced, 4 week online course that you can start any time.
The stress so many of us have come to accept as a normal part of life affects us well beyond our moods. We experience it constantly without a chance to recover and it brings us out of balance, altering our emotions and relationships, our sleeping, eating, and menstrual cycles, our energy levels, and how we feel about ourselves. Join us for a workshop that will empower you to bring your body and mind back into balance naturally with the support of herbs.
In this course you will receive two lessons a week, one on Monday and one on Thursday, over email for four weeks.
Part of the workshop will be experiential as you taste a specific selection of suggested herbs and find your own herbal allies. The materia medica (the list of herbs and their uses) will include nervous system relaxants, nervous system tonics, and adaptogens.
The course will cover:
introduction to herbalism / addressing symptoms vs addressing causes / herbal medicine making / types of herbs for the nervous system / finding your herbal ally / herbal recipes / the nervous system / the difference between stress and anxiety / actions of herbs / methods of taking and using herbs / creating practices and rituals
"I have struggled with anxiety that has manifested itself in a very physical way for a long time. Previous to Aniko's class, the only herbal remedy I tried was chamomile tea that I could purchase at the grocery store, which never really worked. What I appreciated about the class from the start was that Aniko shared her knowledge and expertise about what herbal allies to use, what each herb was useful for, and where you could buy high quality herbs affordably. Getting a weekly "curriculum" emailed to me was great as I could work through her lessons at my own pace. Each lesson included a list of herbs we'd be exploring that week, detailed descriptions and actions of each, and a simple worksheet for reflection. Aniko even gave us recipes for teas, tinctures, and body oils that we could experiment with and use herbs that best fit our own needs. By the end of the class, I felt more confident in using plants to reduce anxiety and started incorporating a daily herbal tea into my self care routine. I found herbal allies that work for me thanks to Aniko and have noticed how they work to relieve anxiety and tension in my own body." - Ellen
"Learning from Aniko over the past year has truly changed my life. Aniko's authenticity shines through all that she does, and it is evident that she cares deeply about imparting her herbal wisdom to others. Aniko takes the time to answer questions, provides only relevant and evidence based information to her students, and gave me the confidence I needed to move forward with integrating herbs into my daily life. Since taking Aniko's classes I have felt empowered to take my health into my own hands. This education is such a gift!" - Nicole
"It's really refreshing to have met Aniko and realize that there are more ways to solve a problem than pills or just ignoring it. She's a great teacher, inviting students to experiment with mixtures that will benefit their needs. " - Rachel
"I walked into my first workshop with Aniko with a slight interest in plant medicine and left with an ever expanding curiosity into the world that is herbalism. With Aniko's welcoming atmosphere and enthusiasm for plants, it encouraged me to start my own journey. The next day I bought my own rosemary and lemon balm plants, so thrilled about this new adventure. As a nurse, my whole career is based around health and the human body. With Aniko's workshops, it opened the path to a more holistic approach, which overall I feel way more connected to." - Nycia
