We are ready to sprout new seeds and harvest budding herbalists at the Israel School of Herbal Medicine. Live and learn herbal medicine in the pastoral setting of the Ellah Valley in Israel at Moshav Aviezer and learn the ancient wisdom of natural medicine while communing with nature.
Baruch Shapiro studied Western Herbology in depth from leading teachers in the West. This eventually culminated in certification in the U.S as a Clinical Herbalist, which included training from multiple schools in California and New Mexico. He brings together varied perspectives, including scientific and folk approaches to herbal medicine are brought together through his teaching, which is practical and wide at the same time. He maintains a clinical practice, serves as an educator for adults and children, and has worked as medicine maker for over 20 years in Israel and the U.S. Working with people after training as a “healer” has been exciting and humbling. The more we learn about nature, the more we realize that there is nothing that we can do for anyone that the Creator has not already programmed into the natural world for us to discover.
