The Intermediate Herbal Immersion Program builds upon the content of our Foundations program. Students are encouraged to take the first year course prior to this one; however, students from other herbal courses are welcome. Please feel free to write or call with any questions you may have.

This program goes deeper into how to apply herbs to individual needs. We study pulse and tongue diagnostics with acupuncturist Janet Michael and learn about constitutional assessment tools like the 4 humors and the tridoshas.

Course Content includes:

  • Wild harvesting excursions each class
  • Plant Identification
  • Continuation of Medicine Making Techniques
  • A deeper study of the plants and how to apply them to conditions
  • Assessment Skills: Tongue & Pulse Diagnostics
  • Applying the Four Humors System and the Tridosha system
  • Formulation & Dosage
  • Skills for Developing a Clinical Practice
  • Land Stewardship, Reciprocity and Restoration

Food as our First Medicine: Organic healthy lunches provided each day from local farmers and chefs Mike Lane and Erin Suda.  Food allergies accommodated. 225w" sizes="(max-width: 300px) 100vw, 300px" />
