Graduate's Experiences

"As soon as my feet hit the ground at Wellspring Mountain, I knew I was right where I needed to be. The intensive program with the Eclectic School of Herbal Medicine is a dream come true; combining lecture, medicine making, and clinical studies to give me all the opportunities to learn and succeed. I am only halfway through and have learned much more than I thought possible. I'm so proud to be a part of this amazing program."
"The intensive program fashions us to step into the roles we are meant to play. Living in the woods, in a small community, is an experience that asks you to step into the role of humanitarian, egalitarian, environmental activist, and outdoor enthusiast. I find myself falling in love with people and nature again and again, not simply by studying biology, botany, pathology, etc-- but by living it. We live and study together, and the free clinic allows us to exercise that work, playing witness to life, so perfect in its truths and mysteries. This style of living and learning is an 'all hands in' effort that will have an impact on every aspect of your life; mind, body, soul, spirit, heart. My teachers, as well as my peers, support and make space for one another to evolve. And that's what its all about anyway-- evolution. We exist to evolve."
"I waited years to find a very intense/ immersive program that focused on clinical herbalism and medicine making, as well as energetics. This has been the deep dive into study & practice that I was seeking. Highly recommend to other budding herbal practitioners out there who want to get serious about studying alternative medicine."
"I stumbled upon Thomas and his school-- best thing I ever stumbled upon! This is stuff that all doctors should be taught!"

Meet the Founder and Director

Thomas Easley, RH(AHG), founder and director of ESHM and co-author of The Modern Herbal Dispensatory, is a Traditional Western Herbalist. While he loves bioregional herbalism, he use herbs from all over the world, including Ayuveda and TCM. However, he applies them in the Western tradition. You won’t hear Thomas talk much about Chi or Prana, or even Doshas. He respects other cultures’ systems of medicine, but chooses to focus on the deep and rich tradition of Western Herbalism. Keeping with that approach you will hear him talk about humoral imbalances and constitution, Eclectic and Physiomedical approaches to disease, modern Naturopathic therapies, functional blood work ranges and even the occasional reference to Sheldon’s Somatotypes. Thomas also emphasizes using foods as medicine and uses intensive diets, stress reduction techniques, nutritional supplements, and exercise to help his clients achieve their health goals. In addition to herbs, diet, supplements, and lifestyle approaches, Thomas also uses drop dose botanicals and occasionally homeopathic remedies or flower essences. Thomas believes that herbal medicine has the potential to change the world. Unfortunately, much of what is taught about herbs and supplements is driven by marketing and not based in tradition or science. His approach draws on his extensive clinical experience which spans 15 years of full time practice and over 15,000 clients.
