This is an integrative program where Jasmyn Clift and a well-rounded group of visiting expert teachers describe complex client cases. Students use the information to create formulas for which they receive direct feedback.
Students are encouraged to employ the abundant Materia Medica they acquired in the Wild Seed School of Herbal Studies Intermediate Program or similar classes completed elsewhere. Participants gain confidence in their prior knowledge as well as explore a wide range of important new topics relevant to clinical practice.
Folks who sail through this level will be able to go on to Supervised Clinic at either the Compassion Club Wellness Centre, with Jasmyn or most especially with Maryann. We will be providing support, clients and a space as well as a huge apothecary for you to learn the art of clinical herbalism.
The Advanced Case Study consists of one 4-day weekend of class time per month for 6 months, plus guided self study (meaning lots of awesome homework!)
The Wild Seed School of Herbal Studies Advanced Case Study costs $3295 CAD
If accepted, applicants will be asked to pay tuition in full, or a non-refundable 20% deposit of $599 to secure their position. We would then make arrangements for a mutually agreeable payment plan.

Wild Seed’s Advanced Program is a perfect balance of pathophysiology, herbal therapeutics, case studies, and clinical wisdom — by the end I felt ready to approach clinical work with confidence. Instructors have worked hard to distill years of clinical experience into a captivating and relevant curriculum. It has fed my passion for herbal medicine, providing me with a profound respect for the specificity and personalities of herbs, as well as the intricacies of what it means to provide herbal care.
What I learned in Wild Seed’s advanced class with Maryann, Jasmyn & other teachers gave me the basis (and the confidence) to begin my practice as a herbalist. I am so grateful for the wisdom I gleaned from their decades of experience treating clients with complex health issues. It’s been key for me to study with teachers I align with politically in terms of harm reduction, queer-positivity, & more.
