Level One Herbal Certification:  Foundations in Basic Herbalism

Formerly The Spirited Herbalist: A Plant-Guided Journey To Your-Self, this portion of our herbal studies program has been restructured to accommodate a broad audience of students, from the recent High School grad to the mom or dad with little ones at home, the person working a 40-hour week, the retiree who wants a new focus and healthier lifestyle or the person who wants a career-track in clinical herbal practice.

Students learn all the mechanics of making safe and effective herbal products. Discover the world of plants up close and personal, through sight, smell, taste and intuition, and discover how these versatile and brilliant beings work with us, supporting balance and vibrant health.  Anatomy and Physiology are explored from a blending of scientific, energetic and spiritual perspectives, showing the exquisite way the body is designed to work and how our mental, emotional and spiritual state affects its function -- guaranteed to be different from other A&P experiences you might have had!

Class time is balanced with lecture and experiential learning.  A comfortable and versatile classroom, flooded with natural light and views of the gardens, affords students the ability to choose seating that best suits their learning.  The well-equipped kitchen allows ample visual access of demonstrations as well as hands-on participation. 

Homework assignments are designed to be interesting and fun as well as challenging and thought-provoking.  A dedicated Facebook group provides students a forum for discussion. Assignments, class notes and PowerPoints are posted here for easy access.

Practicum hours outside of class time provide the student with real-life harvesting and processing experience. The student spends one 5-hour day each month working hand in hand with the Harvest Manager learning the proper ways and timing of the herbal harvest. There is also opportunity to work directly with the medicine maker.

Teachers are experienced, dedicated and skilled herbalists, gardeners, medicine makers. They also serve as faculty advisors, each student being assigned a personal advisor to help ensure student success.

I am deeply blessed and excited to bring Green Fire Reiki forward at this time when healing is so profoundly needed in our communities.

Reiki is a simple, powerful, and gentle hands-on healing practice that promotes the body’s natural self-healing abilities. Green Fire Reiki I is rooted in the strong foundation of traditional Usui Reiki and Tibetan Shamanic practice, and introduces the vibrational healing power of plant spirit, the highest vibration after Spirit itself. The exquisitely unique energy of plants enhances the connection between the subtle bodies of a person and the Universal Life Force and expands possibilities for healing on all levels. This two-day intensive includes an introduction to and discussion of the Reiki Ideals and the chakra system, incorporating the use of healing plants to encourage healing on all levels.

You will:

  • Learn the history of Reiki, how it works, and many of its uses.

  • Receive the Green Fire Reiki I attunement which opens your Reiki channel to the infinite supply of Universal life force energy, the spirit of The Green Nations and invites balance among your four subtle bodies: the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.

  • Receive the first Reiki symbol, learn how to use it, and practice using it.

  • Receive the Green Fire Reiki I symbol, learn how to use it, and practice using it.

  • Participate in exercises to open your own intuitive personal healing gifts.

  • Experience a guided meditation designed to clear and balance your energy, create your inner Reiki temple and meet your Reiki guide(s) and a plant spirit helper.

  • Learn the Reiki hand positions and practice a Reiki self-treatment.

  • Receive and conduct full Reiki treatments with class participants.

  • Certificate given at the end of class. 1 hour lunch break.

You do not need any previous knowledge of healing plants to participate in this class.
Herbalists and herbal students are urged to consider adding Green Fire Reiki to your herbal tool box for clinical practice.

  • Includes complete Reiki I Practitioner Manual.

  • Certificate given at the end of class.

1 hour lunch break. Please bring your lunch as our location is fairly remote and time will not allow for offsite dining.

When Dr. Mikao Usui received the Reiki symbols and the power and wisdom to use them while meditating many years ago on Mt Kuryama, he accessed the same power that is available to all of us. Shamans from time immemorial have interfaced the spirit world with the human and Usui can be considered to be one of the most powerful shamans the world has known. The practice of Reiki opens the intuition and thins the illusionary veils between spirit and matter. Within this opening lies an invitation to work directly with Spirit in the healing process the way shamans and indigenous healers have done for centuries. Hands-on Reiki becomes a vital portal for the dynamic ways of working with the Universal Life Force Energy. Enlisting the power of healing plants with focused intention brings traditional Reiki to a heightened level of possibilities for healing on all levels, all time, all planes.

In this experiential weekend, Wendy Snow Fogg combines the diverse teachings she has received with the discoveries that have come with 23 years of Reiki practice. Through ceremony and practice, assisted by the four elements, plants, music, sacred stones, shamanic journeys and Reiki spirit guides, Wendy facilitates your opening to Shamanic Reiki. You will receive the Master-Practitioner Tibetan Buddhist symbol and attunement; receive another archetypal symbol for use in healing work and the Green Fire III Plant Spirit Symbol; work more deeply with your Reiki guides, plant spirit guides and the four elements in the healing/cleansing process; practice body-centered journeying techniques for yourself and your clients; learn energetic extraction techniques and etheric body-work approaches; energetic practices to support spiritual healing and the path of the healer.

Prerequisite: Green Fire Reiki II attunement and minimum 20 healing sessions.

1 hour lunch break. Please bring your lunch as our location is fairly remote and time will not allow for offsite dining.



Scheduled by request with a minimum of 3 students. This one-day intensive is for non-teaching Reiki Masters (Reiki III’s) who want to teach or pass on the practice of Reiki to others, You will be initiated as a Reiki Master Teacher with this attunement and receive one more symbol. You will have the opportunity to discuss professional issues and the commitment of taking on the role of Reiki Master Teacher. You will be provided with time for on-going Q&A. In addition, there will be a review and discussion of the Reiki ideals, the Healing Attunement, all symbols, the Hui Yin and Ki transmissions, the Violet Breath, psychic surgery, and what it all means at the Master Teacher’s level. New Master Teachers will have plenty of hands-on experience as you practice Reiki I, II, III and Master Teacher attunements. You will be given suggestions for effectively teaching Reiki throughout the duration of this class. Certificate given at the end of class. 1 hour lunch break. Please bring a bag lunch. Pre-requisites: Reiki I, II and III or equivalent.  Students who received their prior certifications with a teacher other than Wendy Fogg will be required to meet with her and show certificates as well as discuss prior trainings.
