About Judith and Sacred Ground Herbals:
Judith Millar, B.S. Ed., Herbalist, received her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education in 1985, from The College of New Jersey. She has recently retired from a successful and rewarding teaching career of 31 years. She is an Environmental Educator as well, having been trained by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection to facilitate workshops for students and faculty. She was chosen as “NJ Conservation Teacher of the Year” in 1999 for work in developing school-based conservation and habitat preservation programs. Her love and interest in plants and holistic health practices led to the study of Medicinal Herbalism.
After 10 years of independent study, she became a student with The Australasian College of Health Sciences in the Master Herbalist program. Judith completed her training with ACHS in July of 2006, graduating with high honors. She continues to study with experts in the field of herbalism, both to further her knowledge of assessment and application of therapeutics, and to expand her repertoire of healing modalities. She grows many medicinal herbs in her home garden, and wildcrafts (ethically collects plants from the wild) in Catskill Mountains of NY and in NJ in order to create her own formulations.
To better serve her clients, Judith has incorporated Reiki into her healing practice, and currently holds the status of Reiki Master Teacher. She is cofounder and board member of The Reiki Way Learning Center, in Brick, NJ; a nonprofit dedicated to healing the community and caring for the caregivers in Ocean County.
Judith is an adjunct professor at Georgian Court University, Lakewood, NJ, where she teaches the Foundations of Healing Plants graduate level course at the Holistic Health Studies Masters Program. She also holds private Herbal Studies classes from her home, as well as workshops on a variety of holistic health topics through an online Meet Up group called “Herbalists of NJ”. Judith provides workshops and classes relating to collecting and using medicinal herbs in both New York and New Jersey, as well as writing articles for garden clubs and magazines.
She is a practicing community herbalist, with a focus on Traditional Western Herbalism, although her eclectic approach includes Ayurvedic, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Native American Plant Medicine, Reiki, Flower Essence Therapy, and Essential Oil therapies. Education is a key component of her practice, and a primary goal is to empower people to manage most of their own health care needs through natural, affordable, and locally available means. She offers health consultations through her home practice, Sacred Ground Herbals in Brick, New Jersey.
