About us

Holistic Herbal Education for Self-Healing

Grassroots is a comprehensive introduction to integrative herbalism and holistic living. Students will enjoy hours of spring sunshine at the beautiful Sacred Mountain Sanctuary in Candler NC, while learning the fundamentals of health, healing and self awareness. We will explore many forms of  medicine making easily incorporated into the kitchen, as well as  native plants of the woods and fields, flower essences, energy anatomy and an introduction to Ayurveda. We will also look into the systems of the body and the herbal remedies and lifestyle practices that support them, including the digestive, nervous, circulatory, urinary, generative and immune systems. Students leave the class with a plentiful basket of skills and herbal allies, and the confidence to safely incorporate them into daily practices for self healing and supporting the family. Due to the nature and location of the class, students need to be able to make a moderately vigorous walk through the woods (uneven terrain) during each class.

  • History of Herbalism
  • Energy Anatomy Overview
  • Plant Actions + Energetics
  • Intro to Ayurveda
  • Digestion as a Foundation of Health

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

Mind training for post-retreat life! Renate

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
