What is the Medicine Making & Meridian Therapy Track About?
This track is a hands-on experiential series of classes that emphasizes medicine making and preparations along with body therapies, tools and techniques.
Who should take the Medicine Making & Meridian Therapy Track?
It is especially useful for those who have completed the Foundation or Intermediate Tracks of the East West Seminar who aren’t prepared yet or ready to participate in their next tracks. As well, those who have completed the Advanced Track of the seminar and are preparing for the EWCH program will find this track a perfect adjunct to their practice by increasing skills for preparing medicines and learning therapies to assist their herbal treatments. It is also perfect for practitioners who desire to hone or augment their current tool set. This track is also open to those who are interested in learning medicine making and meridian therapies but who have not yet attended any of the East West seminars.
Why would I take the Medicine Making & Meridian Therapy Track instead of the Foundation Track?
The Medicine Making & Body Therapy Track is NOT a substitute for the Foundation Track as they cover very different material. Anyone desiring to learn herbal medicine should take the Foundation Track as this teaches an energetic model for assessing illness and client conditions along with the energetics of herbs and how to use them accordingly.
