“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

First, our main guest speaker is Prashanti de Jager, owner of the Ayurvedic herb company, Organic India. He will share his incredible experiences and wisdom on Ayurveda with everyone Saturday.

Powerful Healing Techniques

Roy Upton returns to teach the psycho-spiritual side of the Chinese Organ system Saturday evening.

NEW in 2018 – Auricular Therapy for All! Michael Tierra will teach a powerful system of ear seeding to everyone for five hours on Sunday. According to TCM, the ear holds acupressure points that correspond to each part of the body. When you stimulate a point with mild pressure, the vital life energy in turn affects its related organ or area, allowing healing to take place. Auricular therapy is very effective for a wide variety of conditions, but are especially known for their treatment of pain. As well they treat addiction, such as stopping smoking or weight loss. It is a powerful adjunct therapy useful to all practitioners for home and clinic.

In-Depth Lessons from Practicing Professionals

Next, we are proud to present two of our E.W.C.H. graduates and faculty members as guest teachers this year: Miles Coleman and Nancy Angelini.

We also welcome Pamela Shaw to our East West faculty as she teaches the Formulas Class to the Intermediate Track.

Grad Jill Barnattan returns to offer her popular short yoga sessions at the beginning and end of each day. Called, “Unwind Your Mind,” they do just that!

Our Medicine Making and Meridian Therapies Track offers the same great teachers and lots of preparation and body therapies included this year.

Of course we have the most fabulous faculty to teach all five tracks: Susan Kramer, Miles Coleman, Candis Cantin, Jen Grady, Darren Huckle, Holly Hutton, Jerry Angelini, Josh Farahnik and Mariposa Bernstein.

Add our remarkable 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
