About the event

Now enrolling for "Bodies for Herbalists" starting March 2024 in West Virginia! This class is hybrid: in person and live on Zoom, making it available to all with an internet connection. This is one module of a three module intensive for those wanting to become herbalists. This class makes a great gift for the herb lover in your life who dreams of being a healer. This is a solid foundation in how the body works Limited enrollment offered to ensure each student gets attention and we stay safe in the age of COVID. Contact Lily to reserve your spot. Syllabus is here. Class day and time is the same each month: third Wednesdays 6:30-8:30+ (We do go over when the spirit moves us!) Who takes an herb class? Many different kinds of people have been Lily's students. Some are practitioners of some sort: nurses, dentists, MDs, midwives, or massage therapists. Many have never had anatomy or physiology experience and are absolute beginners. All are curious, love nature, and want to help people. The world needs more herbalists. Join us! Advanced modules (clinical, cultivation, starting an herb business, education, and/or apothecary) can happen in the apprenticeship program after successful completion of this class.


These classes mix lecture and video with hands-on experience: medicine making, experiencing the herbs, outdoor classes, and field trips. Class sizes are limited and the classes fill up. I do generally create a waitlist. 

A deposit, payment in full, or a payment plan in good standing guarantees your place in the class. $1200 tuition for each module is non-refundable. Pay in full or Lily can finance it for you. Financed payment plans are: $172.50 for 8 months or $138 for 10 months (15% financing). Enroll here, or email Lily to  set up a payment plan or ask questions: holler (at) lilykunning (dot) com Class spots are limited and will be given to folks who take COVID seriously. We will keep one another safe and report any illness (and if feeling ill, test before coming to class).

This year-long class covers:

  • Anatomy and physiology for holistic practictioners: how all body systems and parts are interdependent, interrelated, and affect one another.
  • Materia Medica (the plants and how they work as medicine)
  • Advanced medicine making
  • Assessment of wellness: interviewing and asking questions
  • Plant Identification
