Reading the Body: The Practicing Herbalist

with Margi Flint, January 30-31, 2016

Course Information

Margi Flint shares tips for clinical practice. We will cover practical office skills, suggestions from protection and boundaries to listening skills, reference books and drop pulse testing. Afternoons will be observing patient intakes with Margi followed by discussion of diagnosis, formulation and treatment plan culminating with her presentation to our patient. The weekend will be part lecture as well as group participation. This is an excellent workshop for any student practitioner or professional practitioner to learn new ways of creating and supporting the therapeutic relationship and seeing an elder herbalist in practice.
