Sandra Parker

When learning Herbalism the course duration is 3 years, however it is said it takes 7 lifetimes to become a 'true' herbalist.


Sandra has the honour of having learnt from Alchemists the true nature of working with herbs and their health benefits both internally and externally. For the last 18 years I was privileged to meet and have as my Mentor for over 15 years, Ken Atherton of Pindari Herb Farm in Longford, Tasmania, Australia. Ken's passion for sharing herbal wisdom & alchemical doctrines saw him present 5 day live-in herbal seminars which I was asked to co-presented with him for 10 seminars.

After Kens passing in 2013, Linda Bates and Sandra

co-presented the January & February 2015 5 day live-in seminars. 

Consulting in my clinic revealed the need for herbal medicine through the many thousands of clients presenting for treatment over the 3 decades. 

To be become a true herbalist a person must adhere to all aspects of herbal medicine from the Indian - or Ayurvedic Medicine to the Traditional Chinese Medicine, both have worked for centuries which attests to our largest populations on the planet.


I have been privileged to have purists of organic, fresh plant herbal medince pass their unique knowledge on to me.  With love and gratitude I am humbled by their knowledge and expertise so freely shared.


Herbs are grown on my property in the idealic, non-polluted environment of Tasmania. I wildcraft many of the proven beneficial herbs, flowers, leaves, berries, barks and roots available growing naturally in this pristine  area.
