Fall/Winter Semester Classes and Courses 2013

Classes are offered at the Troy-Hayner Cultural Center in the art studio front room.  You may register at their website, at the Center in person or over the phone.  Per the Center's policy, classes must be paid in full before the class starts.  Checks are made payable to the instructor, Carla Hunolt.

Beginning Oct. 5 in Troy, Ohio:

Beginner’s Intro to Herbal Medicine:  A Comprehensive Course


This is a 6 part course for the beginning student who wants to learn about traditional herbal medicine in depth. Here we take the main lessons of a typical 9 month Foundations course and condense it into a serious study, without the 4 digit cost.

We will cover botany, apothecary practices, forms of administration, tissue states, tongue diagnosis, organs and their energetics, digestive, allergy, wound and nervous system care through herbs as well as make remedies to take home and more!  Remedies will include tinctures, tea, vinegar and a salve.  Weather permitting there will also be a plant walk!  A class text is provided but please bring a pen or pencil and paper to do some extra note taking.

This class is fitting for anyone who wants to learn about how plants work in the body, is mystified and confused standing in the supplement isles at health food stores, and/or would like to be empowered with a foundation for caring naturally for their basic health and that of their loved ones.

Age: Adults

Fee: $300 + $75 supply fee that covers text, raw materials for class projects such as salve and tincture making, tea served in class, etc.  Total cost $375

Meets: 10:00am to 12:30pm, 6 Saturdays,  10/5, 10/19, 11/2, 11/9, 12/14, 12/21 (Note irregular dates--we have to work around Holiday events at the Hayner Center)

Cold and Flu Herbal Care Intensive

Are you really supposed to use Echinacea to fight a cold?  Come learn the who, what, how and why of herbs that are traditionally employed to alleviate colds and the flu, as well as common secondary infections that may accompany them.  We will have hands on medicine making of syrup and tea to take home to bolster your bag of home remedies for cold and flu season!  Text provided, bring a pen or pencil for note taking.
