The Road Less Travelled
Have you ever taken the road less travelled?
Well, that is what I did on this very spot and I never looked back
The California school of herbal studies. Straight out of college I started taking classes with Rosemary Gladstar and Jane Bothwell. I had just spent 4 years in college classes and not a single class from those 4 years touched me the way Rosemary did in the first 2 hours I spent with her…. I was smitten. That was it. I knew I was in the right place.
I didn’t even really know what was happening here at the California School of Herbal Studies, but I knew that whatever it was, I wanted it. Those two women and this place set the course of my life.
Nowhwere could I look out on my life and see a reflection of the choice I was making, to be here and study herbalism it just wasn’t out there. I mean now herbalism is everywhere now, but in 1986, it wasn’t like that, it wasn’t an option it was not on the radar…
Check out this little video and then scroll down and tell me something about your road less travelled…
Hello I’m Kami, Welcome to Living Awareness!
I believe every family needs to have someone on board with a working knowledge of natural remedies if you want to take care of your family’s health for real.
When I was growing up, natural remedies was not a mainstream concept like it is now, in fact, you are going to be surprised that I never even heard the word natural remedy until I moved out of the house!
In my early 20’s I met someone by chance that told me about holistic health and herbal medicine. I wondered why nobody had talked to me about it before and had a voracious appetite to learn everything I could.
Now, 30 years later I've helped thousands of people demystify the world of herbal medicine and become empowered in using herbal self-care in their home to prevent illness, take care of common ailments and protect their health naturally.
For 20 years I've had a clinical herbal practice connecting people with plants and their wellness. I've developed and taught herbal curriculum for UCSF School of Nursing and the Integral Health Master’s Degree Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies.
Stick with me! You’ll learn awesome herbal self-care, get inspired to be more self-sufficient in your health care and nourish a deep love for the herbs and how to use them, knowing you are doing the very best you can to care for your wellness.
