“It’s a transformational life experience disguised as an herbal seminar.”

– Miles Coleman, E.W.C.H.

Dear Friends,

Every year we introduce something new and this year is no different!

Main Speaker

We are excited to announce that we have several guest speakers joining us at our next seminar in 2019 – 7Song, Christopher Hobbs, Roy Upton, and Ingrid Bauer!

The first three, and Michael, will teach classes to everyone, while Ingrid teaches specialty classes to practitioners.

With this lineup it promises to be quite an incredible week!

Our seminar focus this coming year is on clinical and herbal first aid.

This includes treatment of pain with a hands-on (so to speak!) class on Korean Hand Therapy.

The Therapies Track returns with an emphasis on medicine making along with several classes in channel massage.

As well we’ll continue with Jill Barnattan’s wonderful short yoga sessions between meals and before bedtime called, “Unwind Your Mind.”

We welcome graduate, Sheila Devitt, as a teacher this year (she reviews lesson tests)!

Plus we have our fabulous faculty: Susan Kramer, Holly Hutton, Jerry Angelini, Nancy Angelini, Jill Barnattan, Candis Cantin, Jen Grady, Darren Huckle, and Mariposa Bernstein.

Add our incredible meals by acupuncturist/herbalist chef Ben Zappin, plus our beautiful redwood rustic setting and annual Product Contest & Herbalists Party, and you can look forward to a powerful learning, nourishing and healing experience on all levels!

Blessings,

Michael & Lesley
