“Such a great class where you can learn all kinds of great herbal medicine and how to live a more natural life. Kym Chi is a great facilitator and easy to listen to and follow along with. Such much knowledge passed down that I can incorporate every day into my life and my children’s”- Colleen

“My time with Kym Chi and the Herbal Preparations course was a sacred journey through my relationship with plants. She slowed it down and allowed me the invitation and opportunity to connect on a deeper level. It became about more than the harvesting, preparation Or outcome of health...it was about alignment and listening ....deeply. First. Period.

I appreciate the kind and gentle reverence Kym offered. My journey has begun anew with joy. Thank you Kym” - Mandy

“I love this class a lot and enjoy it tremendously. It opened my eyes to the medicinal use of many plants and mushrooms. It is wonderful to know something as common as weeds that can be rich in medicinal constituents. The course is informative and very inspiring. Most of the techniques were easy to follow. Now I have the basic techniques and plan to make some staple medicines for my family. I am sure I will keep learning and making more. I would definitely recommend this course to others.” - Jammy

“Gathering in a medicine kitchen with Kym as a warm, relaxed and informative mentor to learn about plant allies and how to make medicine and food was nourishing on many levels. Gaining skills and building relationships with plants, and other keen folks, was soul food indeed. Much gratitude!” - Jenn

“Grandma said when you come on something good, the first thing to do is share it with whoever you can find; that way, the good spreads out where no telling it will go.” That’s why I am spreading the news of this course because It is worth your time/energy and this is so timely to access new skills and wisdom as we navigate in these unprecedented health issues/pandemic. To be resilient is a motivation to be creative/innovative by tapping into our natural resources within our backyards and communities for health benefits, with care and responsible harvesting, this is what I have taken from this course. - Dharlyn

“Kym is an excellent, well informed, caring, patient, and thoughtful teacher. I learned so much from the Herbal Allies Preparations and Plant Allies course. I feel much more empowered to make my own medicines. I really appreciate that there are materials and videos to go back to. I highly recommend Kym as a teacher and her courses!” - Kelly
