“Lise Wolff's Three Seasons of Herbal Wisdom has been one of the best investments I have ever made and I would highly recommend it. I had very little knowledge of herbs and plants going into the program. After searching many options that included correspondence classes, I knew that Lise's offering was for me. Lise's style is alive and hands on. She brilliantly brings together her years of clinical experience, information from clinical studies, herbal history, contact with plants in the environment, and hands on medicine making. In addition, the clinical hours offered through the apprenticeship was invaluable. Lise is able to take complex information and present it in a manner that can be easily applied. She challenges her students to think deeply and make connections with the plants in their environment. By the end of the program, I had 60+ tinctures plus salves and had more than enough herbal inventory to get my practice going. It brings me joy to be able to share this knowledge and wisdom with confidence to family, friends, clients, and beyond. Life changing.”

"I consider Lise's 3 Seasons Class to be the catalyst that helped me to identify and nurture what has become my life's passion: helping others through herbal medicine. I took several of Lise's one-time classes, became intrigued with herbs, and decided to take the plunge and invest my time and money into her 3 Seasons Class. Best. Investment. Ever.

"The 3 Season classes include people with many levels of experience and knowledge - I was definitely one of the beginner level students and wondered what I had gotten myself into! However, Lise is a master teacher and so good at explaining details and making sure everyone understands and feels included in class discussion and activity.

"Along with Lise's expertise and instruction in class, I learned so much from sitting in on "live" consultations with Lise and her clients, getting hands on experience with how to conduct a consult and invaluable tips on determining which herbs and preparations might give support in each situation.

"The time commitment of the class lends itself to developing friendships which continue long after the class is over. I so enjoy seeing several herbalist friends from my 3 Seasons Class at events or meeting over a cup of tea - hopefully herbal! The greatest longterm benefit, however, has been Lise's ongoing support whenever I have questions or a new discovery to share. Priceless."

"I took 3 Seasons of Herbal Wisdom over ten years ago and have such fond memories of it. Foraging for wild plants, tasting the medicines and having lectures outside in the elements was such a relief from conventional education. Lise Wolff so generously transmits her passion and practical knowledge for the local flora with a mix of historical and contemporary data, personal clinical experience and hands-on practice with students. The wealth of teachings from this class became the foundation for my dream of becoming a professional herbalist. I now run a busy practice and feel so grateful! More importantly, a very intimate relationship developed with the land and its common weeds, this little know rich world of curiosity growing in our own backyards. It is amazing how you become useful to friends, family and your community after one year hanging out with Lise, whose teachings have impacted thousands by now and likely saved millions in healthcare costs! Agrimony, solomon seal, blue vervain...what a precious time I spent that year..."
“Lise Wolff's Three Seasons class is an invaluable and highly accessible course for anyone interested in herbalism and greater health through whole plant medicine. Francis Bonaldo referred to it as being worth 3 years of any other program rolled into one and he was absolutely right! Throughout the year, Lise provided deep and detailed information on over 40 of the most well-known and useful western medicinal plants. She held nothing back and freely shared the information she has gathered over her 25+ years of experience. As a group, we learned to harvest each plant in their optimal season, creating an entire medicinal kit of tinctures from fresh materials. Additionally, Lise encouraged us to start working with clients-whether family, friends, or acquaintances-immediately and provided us with both the information and skills that helped us feel safe and confident in our own practice. Lise's Three Seasons class jump-started my career as an herbalist. Much of the success I have experienced in working with clients is due to the solid foundation and great mentorship I received during her class.”
