About Don Ollsin:

Don's journey with herbs began in 1969, and he has been walking the path of a grassroots herbalist for over 45 years. He followed his passion for healing and raised three kids working as a full-time herbalist. He opened and operated an herbal dispensary, Self-Heal Herbs, for eighteen years and has been teaching herbalism since 1972. His innate love of learning comes across in his teachings. He provides students with the guidance they need on their journey as healers.

As a mentor, his goal is not just to guide you through the motions; he will be responsible for your educational growth in various fields like Western Herbalism, Medicine Making, Herbal Gardening, Herbal Politics and Herbal Consulting complemented with Ayurveda, Dreambody and Shamanism. Mentoring, unlike coaching, is a deeper process that focuses on the growth of an individual not just in one area of life but in all areas of life.

Pathways to Healing: A guide to Herbs, Ayurveda, Dreambody and Shamanism by Don Ollsin is the textbook for the Online Herbal Course.
