In the midst of the Covid-19 situation, we wanted to remind you that this is a perfect time to turn to plant medicine and working with the land. While many of our onsite classes have been temporarily suspended, we are still here for you online! Below you can find a listing of some upcoming online classes to keep you and your family educated and minds stimulated as we traverse this situation as a community.

As we are witnessing today, modern conveniences are not guaranteed and it is vital that we learn austere and sustainable skills, as well as herbal medicine, to use for ourselves and in supporting our communities in times such as these. This is the driving force behind The Human Path and what the school specializes in, and we hope that you join us in educating yourself on these important and timely topics so that our community continues to grow and support others in times of need, such as this one.
