Herbal Education & Deep Mentorship
"If you want to learn herbs, find a knowledgeable mentor"
Don Ollsin is one of only 250 registered members of the American Herbalist Guild (AHG). He is one of only 20 AHG professionals who offer their services as a mentor.
Mentoring is way beyond taking a course. You get that rare experience of actually talking with a real person. A person who has the knowledge and the skill to help you realize your goals.
We also offer one of the most affordable mentorship programs available.
Note, Don has almost 5 decades of experience in the herbal field.
Honored as an Herbal Elder of Canada in 2015 by Canadian Council of Herbalist Associations.
Don recently (2013) complete his MA in Environmental Education and Communication. He did his master's thesis around teaching online. Teaching online is new and challenging. In my first online courses only a small number of students completed them. My last course had 100% complete the course.

“The recipient of Don Ollsin's teachings would have a better life as they would understand their inner strength. He would not only be teaching them herbs and their usefulness but also about inner strength, energy, and being a whole human.
I have seen Don Ollsin turn students around to very calm, vibrant, understanding people. They were able to find their self esteem. I know some of them are still working in the field of helping others from what they have learned from Don Ollsin
Through knowing Don and working with him for all these years i would recommend him to be instructor in herbal medicines and self help.”
