Community Classes

We offer many in-house classes, ranging from 2 hour workshops to year-long programs. Below is a general list of our offerings, as well as our offerings for the season. Classes are held at Green Path Herb School at 180 S 3rd St W above Meadowsweet Herbs.

2018 Fall Class Series:

 Winning at Weight Loss

Join Dr Dawn Dalili to explore the two questions you must answer well in order to stop getting in your own way and lose weight once and for all. Dawn often hears some version of this challenge: “I know what to do, but for some reason, I just don’t do it. I keep getting in my own way.” This talk will focus on the non-nutritional aspects of weight as well as the nutritional side of the weight loss equation. If you have 5-50 lbs, or even more, to lose, you do not want to miss this opportunity for a breakthrough in Winning at Weight Loss!

Dr Dawn Dalili is a Naturopathic Physician, focusing on weight, hormonal balance, and metabolic healing for women. Two years ago she joined the team at Montana Whole Health, and before that, she worked with women around the country to help them overcome their weight challenges by expertly combining nutritional and non-nutritional strategies. Her goal as a practitioner is that every woman live in a body she loves.

Herbal Kombucha

Most people have heard of kombucha by now, but if you haven’t, all the better! Join Herbalist and the woman behind The Botanical Brewess, Brittany Breitenbach to discuss the basics of this fermented tea as well as how to add herbs to amplify the benefits and customize your kombucha to your own needs. Please bring a jar if you would like a SCOBY to take home with you.

With a curious mind, a love for the outdoors, and affinity for hands on creation, Brittany Breitenbach ventured into the world of herbal medicine. She attended Green Path Herb School where she discovered a passion for medicine making. With a background in bartending as well as herbal medicine, herbal fermentation became an obvious choice in direction. Her passion for creating medicinal beverages has lead her to teaching classes, hosting drink parties, and collaborating with other like minded businesses. When she is not a mad scientist in her fermentation station, you can find her in the outdoors with her dog or gardening with her son.

Herbs for your Last Nerve

Join herbalist and Green Path herb School co-director, John Goicovich for this free introduction to the nuanced category of nervines. We will discuss the basic protocols for dealing with stress and learn how to start choosing particular remedies based on a plant’s primary and secondary medicinal effects.

John Goicovich is the Co-Director of Green Path Herb School. John first started working with plants in the early 1990s on the coast of California. It was not until moving to the Rocky Mountains in 1993 that his interest became a lifetime commitment. John’s first love of herbs was always the connection between plants and people and the personal involvement in making one’s own remedies. John is a graduate of both the Rocky Mountain Center for Botanical Studies and the Southwest School of Botanical Medicine. He is the co-founder of Meadowsweet Herbs.

Beauty Ritual

Join holistic esthetician/herbalist Anna Rummel Tenenbaum for a guided exploration of self care as ritual. Using the simplest means, we can elevate our routines from drudgery to celebration of the self. Connecting with botanical allies and reframing our definition of beauty can be a powerful tool for reclaiming our self worth and connecting deeply with our inner beauty. Anna will explore simple tools including breath work, visualization, aromatherapy and more to allow you to infuse ritual into your daily beauty routine. Each student will create a gem infused aromatherapy space spray.

Anna Rummel Tenenbaum’s  first connection with healing power of plants was as a young child, growing up in the beautiful mountains of Western Montana. Since that early period, her interest has grown into her life’s work, passion and expertise. Anna trained as an herbalist at the Green Path Herb school. She combines her herbalism with her work as a holistic esthetician.  She is owner of Apothecary Esthetics, a botanical skincare studio & boutique in Missoula, Mt.   She is trained in multiple skincare, wellness and botanical modalities and takes great joy in connecting others with the healing power of plants.  Residing in Missoula Montana, Anna loves spending time with her four children, being in nature and helping others to feel their beauty.

  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
