We facilitate two practitioner pathways for those interested in a career working with animals.



1) Innate Botanical Selections - 


We combine the wisdom and method of Applied Zoopharmacognosy with our immersive and seasonal teaching in herbalism.

You will find this the most in depth zoopharmacognosy and herbalism for animals course available.

Covering dried and fresh botanicals, product making, preparation, essential oils, hydrosols, essences, foraging, herbal energetics, case studies, physiology, anatomy and much much more.


This pathway allows you to explore the fascinating world of animal herbalism and animals self-medicating. You will gain a comprehensive understanding of how animals instinctively select and use medicinal plants, and learn the scientific principles behind their choices.

2) Reiki 1, 2 & Master -


Through this pathway, you will learn how to channel healing energy to animals and humans, helping them release stress, alleviate pain, and support their overall well-being. 

With Reiki, you can become a caregiver, therapist, and healer for animals and humans.

We breakdown our Reiki practitioner course into 3 stages. Reiki one, Reiki two and Reiki three or Master. We provide an additional continuing professional development course called Beyond Reiki. You can choose to undertake any one level or all 3 to become a practitioner. You may choose to undertake the course solely for humans or for both humans and animals.

"Joining Rachael’s amazing Innate Botanical Selections and Herbal Shenanigans has brought so much enrichment to both my animals and myself. My connection to herbs is deepening, where knowledge changes to a relationship and awareness of our interconnection. It is fascinating and humbling to witness the intelligence of horses and dogs seeking what they need and learning to trust this. I also love exploring the difference in expression, whether herbs are sought in the fresh or dried form, as a cut herb or powder, an essential oil or hydrosol – a whole new world of possibilities of interaction. I have learnt so much about how my horses process too. As an Ayurvedic practitioner I love how we follow the rhythm of the seasons, seeing what is needed now and what will support for the future as the foundation of well-being and interrelatedness for us all".
