Studying with Karine over the past two years has been a wonderful journey. Although I had worked with herbs years ago, other responsibilities took over my focus and I put the herbs aside while I worked as a health professional. Learning from Karine has been more thorough than I expected as she is generous with her time and knowledge. The first year’s study was exciting and full of new information that took time to digest, new ideas to find space for. The second year deepened the first beautifully, allowing a flowering from the first year’s base. The practical and easily accessible curriculum helped me to learn the qualities and uses of many herbs, even some (lots!) that can be grown in my garden and yard. Being able to devote time and energy to the plants has been such a blessing, and has brought me balance and strength. With Karine’s gentle patient oversight I’ve learned to capture the essence of the plants, and my cabinet is full of beautifully jewel-toned oils, salves and teas right from my backyard.
On our frequent walks to identify plants we saw the herbs in their natural habitat, and the variations of how they grew under different conditions, with Karine identifying and connecting with the plants as we went. We made oils, salves, tinctures, syrups, glycerides, teas, infusions, decoctions and more, we meditated and communicated with the plants. Sacred Heart of Herbalism training has been an education I’ve only dreamed of, and it’s empowering still as I stay connected to the plants and let them lead me into the next chapter.
Thank you Karine for your authentic herbal mothering and expertise! Your program is indeed sacred and heart centered and you teach clearly with deep humility and inner strength.

Karine is an extremely knowledgable and qualified energy healer and herbalist. She is an expert in her field and it has been a pleasure working with her and knowing her. The Plant Spirit healing work we did together opened the pathways as I continue to gain insights on my journey called life. Karine’s knowledge about plants, herbal remedies and the Plant Spirits is invaluable. Her tea blends are so much more than organic tea; she honors the power of the plants and creates a tea that tastes divine and nurtures both body and soul. I highly recommend Karine; she is truly gifted!

I have studied with Karine since 2001. I have found her to be the most knowledgeable and down to earth herbalist that I had the pleasure to study with. Her passion for the plants and the Great Mother is contagious to all that she teaches and her herbal teas blends are second to none! I look forward studying with her for many years to come.

The tea is wonderful! You should put this one in your product line. I used it too and noticed a change. Nicky only takes the tea and his probiotics now. We are off all other medicine. Thank you so much!
Entering into the world of plants and herbs through this course is one of the most amazing events in my life. Plant communication has provided a pathway of understanding to the energy of healing from plants under the guidance of Karine, a great teacher.
