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

– Miles Coleman, E.W.C.H.

East West Herb Seminar: April 22 – 29, 2022

For your safety and comfort, this year’s seminar will be all ONLINE.

The 2022 seminar will be for Foundation and Intermediate Tracks. Advanced Track will return in 2023.

2022 Featured Guest Speaker: Aviva Romm

Announcing our exciting 2022 online seminar week!

Dear Students:

Our second online seminar, held earlier this year, was a great success. We keep hearing from folks around the world how happy they are to finally attend an online seminar since they haven’t been able to come in person. For that reason, and because times are still uncertain around gathering in small spaces during Covid-19 days, we are offering our seminar online in 2022. This next seminar, April 22 – 29, 2022 will also be online with classes for Foundation and Intermediate. The Advanced Track will be offered again in 2023.

Focus on Women’s Health

This year we have two classes that highlight women’s health! We are most fortunate to have physician, midwife, teacher, herbalist, and East West graduate, Aviva Romm, join us to teach The Roots of Menstrual Wellness. She will cover a variety of important conditions from ovulation to menstruation and beyond. Our own Lesley Tierra will teach about treating menopausal patterns with its variety of life-passage symptoms.

Michael Tierra’s featured class!

Michael teaches on Sunday afternoon, April 24th. His topic is still a surprise and we look forward to sharing more about this soon!

Week-long Classes

Classes during the week for Foundation Track include TCM fundamentals, Ayurveda, Five Element theory, and differential diagnosis with cases. Intermediate Track classes cover formulas, Chinese, Western, and Ayurvedic materia medicas, and case intakes. There will be two live Q&A classes for Foundation and two for Intermediate and of course our annual live meet and greet for each track start of the seminar on April 22nd.

As for our fabulous faculty, this year we welcome Anne de Courtenay teaching TCM materia medica to the Intermediate Track! Many of you know her as our Professional Course editor, East West graduate, and the monthly e-news composer. We welcome back our faculty members Susan Kramer, Nancy Angelini, and Manish Chandra.

We hope you join us for this exciting week to dive deeper into your studies, learn much more about herbs and herbal healing, meet other students, and of course study with Michael and Lesley!

Aviva Romm’s Featured Class: The Roots of Menstrual Wellness

Our menstrual cycles are guided by a profound ancient blueprint, but modern life has set so many women’s cycles off course. Join Dr. Aviva for an intensive on restoring cycle health and harmony, from ovulation to menstruation, and from gut health to botanicals. We’ll look at the importance of the menstrual cycle, and ovulation, menstrual cycle physiology, and dive deep together into the role of the microbiome and the enteric nervous system, the body’s inherent detoxification systems, plus sleep and circadian rhythm, stress, thyroid health and more, along with the nutrients, lifestyle, and botanicals that can help us realign with this monthly opportunity to tune in and reinvent ourselves.
