About Community School of Natural Therapeutics

Mission Statement: The mission of the Community School of Natural Therapeutics is to provide classes to people from all walks of life, in all aspects of the theory and practice of natural therapeutics. Our goal is to re-empower and inspire individuals in the health and wellness of themselves, their families, and their communities. Our hope is that this positively influences the health and wellbeing of our planet.

  What We Do

We offer classes in herbalism, hydrotherapy, natural therapeutics (history, philosophy and practice) and techniques for  healthier living, including composting and gardening.

Our flagship classes are in Kneipp Therapy, the foundation for most Western holistic therapies. In 2024 we are offering, in collaboration with the School of Essential Natural Therapeutics and the Kneipp Physiotherapy Schule, a Level 1 and Level 2 Kneipp Training Course.

Level 1 will be June 24-29th at Murietta Hot Springs Resort in California. Please click here for info and registration.

Lvel 2 will be in Bad Worishofen Germany at the end of September 2024. Schedule, price and registration soon.

These courses are open to all practitioners, and may apply to continuing education credits, depending on your professional requirements in your state, province or country. Please see individual class pages for more information.

We also offer support to the vitalistic naturopathic community. For a nominal fee we provide group mentoring to young NDs on a monthly basis. We also offer classes on vitalistic naturopathic philosophy and case management.

Our instructors are all accomplished in their fields and hold advanced degrees. Most have taught university level classes, and delight in teaching the public as well!

Please consult our class pages for more information!
