This is the second part to the Chinese Medicine for Western Herbalist series. Now that Spring is in full swing, the class will be geared outdoors with an emphasis on our local plants (from the CM perspective) and deepening our understanding of patterns and treatment. The classes will run from 10am-2pm every Wednesday from 5/14-6/25. Many of the classes will be in woodsy spots, and the June 18th class will be a full-day field trip to Mountain Gardens (with overnight camping optional). Here are some of the topics we'll likely cover: Moxibustion (making, using, treatment), Pao Zhi (enhancing plant energetics through preparation), Meridians, Cupping and Scraping therapies, Acupressure, Chinese Medicine Plant Walks, and Live Case Studies.
Tuition for this 32-hour class is on a sliding scale from $200-$300. You can register now by paying in full or by putting down a non-refundable $50 deposit.
