Josh Fox earned a Bachelor's degree cum laude from the University of Michigan and a Master's degree in Oriental Medicine from Daoist Traditions College of Chinese Medical Arts. He apprenticed both CoreyPine Shane and Joe Hollis and completed programs at the Blue Ridge School of Herbal Medicine and the American School of Herbalism.

He currently trains in Somatic Experiencing (SE) to provide relief from trauma and he continues to train with Giles Carwyn in Carpetwork-- tools to work with the shadows in one's psyche.
