Clinical Herbalist Wellness Counselor

Bear Medicine Herbs Founder and Herbalist


Tommy, a compelling teacher and a practicing herbalist since 1998, combines western herbalism with Native American tradition and ritual. He has completed studies with renowned master herbalists Gail Ulrich, Margi Flint, Matthew Wood, William LeSassier, Phillis Light, Donald Yance, David Delta, and Stephen Harod Buhner. Tommy is currently on the faculty of The Boston School of Herbal Studies. In 1984, a Seminole introduced Tommy to traditional Native American ways. During the last 20 years Tommy has had the privilege of learning from Abanaki, Cherokee, Ojibwa, Lakota, and Cree elders. His primary teacher was Albert Tait, a Cree elder of The Norway House Cree Reservation in Manitoba, Canada. Tommy has also studied core shamanism with John Ford and Michael Harner, Dana Robins and Tibetan shamanism with Larry Peters.

Experience how physical and spiritual energies of plants effect all levels of being. Participants will meet the physical plant, experience the energetics of the tincture and open to the spiritual energies of the flower essence.  Through drumming and guided meditation we make contact with plant wisdom for our own personal healing, the healing of our families, communities and this sacred earth.
This class is amazingly inspirational. Every class I have held over the 10 years of holding these classes, I have witnessed 99% of the people bring back information that was specific to that particular plant we journeyed to.
This class will truly change your perspectives and show you how the spirit realm is just waiting to teach us. All we have to do is connect.
