If you have been reading this short lived blog for any period of time, you are probably assuming I'm talking about my kids education. While I do often spend time contemplating the education of my children, at this point in time I'm actually contemplating my own education.
When I was 19 or 20 years old I got a part time Job at a GNC store. I already had some interest in natural medicine and that sort of thing. Working there continued to spark my interest and I've been learning things and collecting books ever since.
I use a lot of what I have learned and do enjoy sharing what I know with others. The problem is, I really have no authority to back up my knowledge. 20 years ago not many people were able to get any sort of education in areas of natural health. Although a few schools did exist at that time, I just didn't know about them.
The internet and the booming interest in natural medicine has made formal education in such areas much more accessible. So now all I have to do is find a credible school that offers online learning (most of which do) and come up with the money to pay for it. I just wish it was as easy it sounds!
I did find the website for the American Herbalists Guild. They seem to have compiled a lot of information there that looks helpful. Now to make a plan!
What dream have you had laying dormant in the back of your mind? What can you do to bring it back to life?
