The Sacred Healing 7 Herb Center has been around for over 35 years. I taught my very first herb course in July of 1987 at the TRS Professional Suite (they used to be on 30th Street off 5th Avenue in NYC and have since moved to 40 Exchange Place in the Wall Street area in 2012).
At that time I was fully engaged in teaching martial arts and
herbology (and held Herb Walks in the Bronx and Manhattan).
At that time the Center was named the "Wushu Herb Center."

1987; and leading
another class below in 1988, both in the Bronx.
I am pictured to the left with my
teacher and Herb Master Michael
Tierra (on my left; in 1986 he came
to NY to personally present my
Herb Course Certificate to me) and
on my right is my Grand Master
Abu Bakr, with whom I studied
Shaolin WuShu Kung Fu for over 20 years.
The marriage to my Grand Master begot an awesome son, Ishaka, who is a self-
taught Pro Parkour Athlete, Coach and
Personal Trainer (@instagram.com/moverSha).
After receiving my 2nd Degree Black Belt in Wushu Kung Fu (1982), I joined an awesome women's martial arts organization - where I served two terms as it's National Secretary and Editor of its Newsletter.
Our focus: "stopping the violence against women." I spent the next ten years traveling around the country teaching herbology, martial arts, chakra healing and meditation classes to women from all around the world.
These Special Training camps took place in institutions such
as Yale University (to the right) in Connecticut in 1986, Kent State
University (below left) in Ohio in 1987, Haverford College (far right
below) in Pennsylvania in 1988,Loyola University (below center)
in Chicago in 1991, Hofstra University in New York, Hobart Smith
in Geneva, NY, and Evergreen State College in Washington State
(bottom left) in 1995.
As life dictates that everything must change in order to grow, and by 1996 we evolved into the Sacred Healing 7 Herb Center. We currently offer a variety of beginners and advanced herb courses, seminars, workshops, Newsletter, Blog and Website.

Herbs are Nature's Medicine?

1980s (in front of theHarlem

with my very first herb teacher,
Master Herbalist Dr. John Moore.
My path as a healer began with the martial arts in 1977. After receiving my 2nd degree black belt in WuShu Shaolin Kung Fu, my Grand Master told me that I have to study a healing art. I chose reflexology - which lead me to discover herbology.
