Other information

The Herbal Immersion Workshop is a four weekend immersive experience designed to teach Chinese herbalism the way masters like Zhang Zhongjing, Sun Simiao, and Li Dongyuan learned it: by taking their studies out of the books and into their cups. Participants will internalize the theoretical foundation of Chinese herbalism by familiarizing themselves with over 100+ herbs and substances. By directly engaging the senses through handling and more importantly TASTING, participants will supplement their education with experiential knowledge of TCM's most commonly used herbs. Each lecture is to be organized around one of the pernicious qi (wind, heat, dampness, dryness, and cold), its causes, treatment principles, classic formulae, and its associated category of herbs. By combining group tastings, discussions, and demonstrative case studies, in four short weekends the Herbal Immersion Workshop will teach herbal literacy, prescriptive versatility, and produce a new generation of confident and effective herbalists.
