Announcing our 2021 online seminar week!

We are thinking of you during these continuing and “interesting” Covid-19 virus times and seeing you all well and thriving. It’s a crucial time for people to learn how to care for their own health and that of their families.

In 2020 we held our first ever online seminar week! It was fantastic, with an even greater attendance than onsite. While those of us who normally gather in the redwoods for our seminar missed being together, others who could never attend because of distance, family, or work, were able to participate. It was a rousing success! By now many of you have probably tried the online format for various things and know it is easy to use and accessible from anywhere in the world.

That will make attending the 2021 seminar even easier as it will be online as well. And this year we add something more – we are including the advanced track online. So share the word and invite your friends to Foundation (all are welcome to sign up for the Foundation track including those not enrolled at East West), or fellow students to Intermediate or Advanced.

NEW in 2021 – Advanced Track:

The 2021 online seminar is April 23 –  April 30 with THREE tracks available. Many of the Foundation and Intermediate track classes have already been recorded so you can watch those as you wish. This year we are adding a live streaming advanced track, Saturday – Friday, April 24 – 30. Anyone may attend the Advanced track who has already completed the Foundation and Intermediate seminar tracks, finished Lessons 1-36 of the East West Herb Course, and submitted their three cases for review for Lesson 33 no later than Feb 1, 2021.

Our first online advanced track seminar will emphasize case studies with 8 different practitioners plus a class on how to launch your herbal practice. These classes are live-streaming, interactive and with group participation. Attending them all is a requirement for passing this track. Advanced track participants will be requested to submit three of their own cases for class review and study by April 20, 2021. These may be the same as the cases you submitted for Lesson 33. They will be used as general cases in some classes for all students to process. You may of course submit any other cases you are working on.

All Three Tracks:

Those attending either the Foundation or Intermediate Tracks will have five live-streaming classes: a “Meet and Greet” with Michael and Lesley Friday morning (Foundation) or afternoon (Intermediate), April 23, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm or 2 – 5 pm with Michael and Lesley, Saturday morning April 24, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm with Michael Tierra who will cover Anti-aging, Longevity, and Herbs for Elderly Conditions, Sunday morning and afternoon April 25 with David Winston covering 9:30 am – 12:30m Differential Herbal Treatment of Depression and Anxiety and 2 – 5 pm Synergy: The Key to Effective Herbal Practice, and a Q&A class with Michael and/or Lesley specific for your track held Tuesday or Thursday evening from 5:30 – 7 pm. Those in the Advanced track attend all live-streaming classes Saturday April 23 – Friday April 30.

Students in all three tracks will attend live-streaming classes, view on-demand classes and webinars plus take a test for each class. The general “greet each other” meeting online Friday April 23 will give you a chance to meet one another as well as Michael and Lesley, plus become familiar with the online format and webinar process. Instructions and handouts will be emailed to you before the classes begin.

The week begins with live-streaming classes. All On demand recorded classes are available to view for one month.
