Holistic Education

[an error occurred while processing this directive]       Navigation

Holistic education is a hot topic these days. From holistic schools to holistic certification programs, there are seemingly endless opportunities for obtaining holistic training. But which one is right for you and how do you choose?

When I work with a client looking for holistic education, we usually focus on 3 things:

1) What do they want to learn? This means more than simply 'acupuncture' or 'homeopathy'. It means understanding the type of information you want to obtain and how you will use it. For example, if you are an MD interested in learning more about herbs to see if you want to use them in your practice, you may want to start with a weekend herbal program to learn the basics. On the other hand, if you know you want to work with individuals prescribing herbs, you'd probably want to look at a natropathic or herbal certification program.

2) Next we look at how they will fit school into their schedule. For example, do they want to attend night classes, day classes, weekend classes? Do they want more self-study? It is important to review this before looking at schools to save time in the school selecting process.

3) Next we look at the format or formats that the student might prefer. Do they want to learn in-person, are they more comfortable with teleclasses(and will they learn what they need in a teleclass as some holistic courses include hands on work), would they like a more experiential program or are they more of a book learner and also do they want to work with a college type atmosphere or more of a small group format.

Once you've determined the above, you are ready to begin exploring schools and their options. Take your time, ask the important questions and take a program that you will enjoy, not simply one that is the easiest or least expensive. Enjoying your education is an important part of the journey. Wishing you success in your endeavors!~
