Tommy Priester, a practicing herbalist since 1998, combines extensive knowledge of Western herbalism, nutrition and diet with ancient wisdom traditions from Native American and other cultures. Tommy is also a masterful teacher and facilitator who combines expert knowledge of his subject with gentle humor. He is a faculty member at The Boston School of Herbal Studies eight years running.

Tommy offers a wide range of services and programs—from individual consultations, Heart Mind Integration Method and distance healing, to courses, workshops, and retreats—all with a goal of bringing health and well-being to his clients and students.

Since 1984, when a Seminole from Fl. introduced Tommy to traditional Native American ways, Tommy has been privileged to learn from Abanaki, Cherokee, Ojibwa, Cree elders and Lakota Elders.  His primary teachers, Albert Tait and the late Don Cardinal, are Cree elders of Manitoba, Canada.

In October 2009 Tommy was initiated into the Braveheart lineage of the Lakota tradition from Pine ridge S.D.

Tommy has also studied the ancient wisdom traditions as taught in core shamanism with Michael Harner, and other shamanic schools of thought with John Ford, and Dana Robins, and Tibetan shamanism with Larry Peters.

In February 2010 he was initiated into Pan Gu Shen Gong as both an instructor of the basic technique and a practitioner of the Pan Gu Shen Gong healing form. Along with this, Tommy is also certified as a Tong Ren practitioner.
