What we'll explore

Christophe and I have just gotten off a Skype call and we've solidified our schedule for our week-long herbal intensive! 

Besides discussing the schedule we also discussed exactly what we'll be covering. 

Both of us are in complete agreement that we will be sharing very practical information about how to use herbs with people. Our goal is for our students to walk away from this experience with solid information so they can better understand herbalism and how to get the best results. 

We agreed, nothing wishy-washy! All information will be from our own personal and clinical experience and most of this information is not found anywhere else in books or online.
