Wild Rose College of Natural Healing
The Wild Rose College of Natural Healing was conceived through a series of workshops held in Calgary, Alberta by Terry Willard, Ph.D. in 1975. It is now a center for both the casual and the serious student to learn a broad range of therapies, techniques and natural health concepts. Our emphasis is on the wholism of the individual- the integration of the body, mind, and spirit. We believe wholistic healing is an art to be cultivated through a sound investigation. Each of our courses reflects this approach.
The Wild Rose College of Natural Healing now operates entirely as an online college with some opportunities for in-class learning with Lodgepole School. With over 40 years of teaching and generations of practice within the field of Herbalism, our courses were created to provide you with a deep understanding and knowledge in your areas of study. Our online format provides students with flexibility and simplicity. For more information please view our FAQs and Policies page, or contact our administration. We look forward to supporting you as you follow your passion for Wholistic Medicine!

Hi! My name is Jacqui and I am a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, certified from the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. My journey began years earlier when I was struggling with undiagnosed digestive and skin issues that impacted my life. On my pursuit to wellness, I worked at a health food store and gained a lot of knowledge and insight into how nutrition and herbal medicine can have a profound impact on your overall health. Most of my spare time is spent in the kitchen creating recipes. I also enjoy venturing out to farms to pick fresh berries, exploring markets to find local goods, and being out in nature exploring botanical gardens. I am excited to be a part of the Wild Rose College team and to continue expanding my knowledge and continuing my education in herbal medicine.
