Rosemary Gladstar says, “Marie and I have worked closely together for the past several years at Sage Mountain Herbal Retreat Center, the WHC, and The International Herb Symposium. She also served as a teacher for students of my home study course, The Science & Art of Herbalism: Online Course, for many years. Marie’s not only an experienced herbalist who brings many diverse healing skills to her teachings, but is also a wonderful teacher and person. I’m delighted that Marie is offering this special opportunity for students to study with her.“
