  3. Hello there! Is there any classes planned for Fall/Winter 2016? I’d like to take some. I’m also interested in the 450 hour certification class as well. Thank you!

    • Hi Kristina, Our fall classes will be coming up soon and they will be listed on our website under “Community Classes”. You can also get the info by signing up for our email newsletter. Hope to see you there! Elaine

  4. Elaine,
    Is there any way to receive the “celebrating your first menstruation” in digital format? We live in Colorado and my daughter is 12 with many friends starting their cycles I’m sensing she’s not far behind. I attended a class of yours at the Montana Herb Gathering two years ago and just love your style of instruction. There’s not enough of this information out there for young girls and she just love the healing properties of plants.

    • Hi Ava,
      Thanks for your kind words! I agree, there isn’t enough of this information out there. I’m sorry, at this time there isn’t a recording of this class. I will also be teaching it at the Pacific Women’s Herb Conference outside Seattle in September (don’t know if that is a possibility for the two of you, but wouldn’t that be cool?!). If they tape it, I’ll let you know as well! Warmly, Elaine
