Please join us May 16-18, 2014 for the inaugural Traditional Roots Herbal Conference.
The conference will draw on tradition as well as scientific research to offer the best of both worlds. Enrich your knowledge of materia medica as applied to clinical case review, and expand your skills in formulation. Enjoy a variety of topics, including constitutional evaluation, herbal energetics, hands-on medicine making, gardening with medicinal plants, bioregional herbalism and wildcrafting, and botanical field applications.
This symposium is ideal for all people interested in herbal medicine, including clinicians who use, or want to use, herbal prescriptions as key components to treating disease and reclaiming health. Also welcome are community herbalists as well as others who wish to learn more about the benefits of the natural world.
There’s something for everyone, from neophytes to advanced practitioners of the herbal healing arts.
