Kathleen Leeson RH – Biography
Kathleen Leeson RH (Registered Herbalist) has been studying, working, growing, sharing, teaching, journeying & playing with the plants since 1982. After attending both Niagara & Algonquin Colleges, she became a Horticulturalist & worked in the field until becoming ill with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in 1989. She then happily discovered that the “Old Wives’ Tales” about using the herbs for health were true! She dove into the study of Herbalism, primarily with David Hoffmann, an acknowledged leader of the North American herbal renaissance.
In addition to plant-based therapies, she has intertwined many time-honoured Shamanic processes & the Wise Woman Tradition for her own health. Her Teachers have included Susun S. Weed, Pam Montgomery, Martin Prechtel, David Winston, Amanda McQuade-Crawford & Michele Bougie.
Since 1995, Kathleen has been in clinical practice & has been teaching since 1996. She became a certified Registered Herbalist (R.H.) through the Ontario Herbalists Association when they offered this professional designation in 2000.
Through teaching students, aiding the processes of her clients & mentoring apprentices, her own growth as an exemplary Teacher & Healer-For-Others continues to joyfully unfold.
