Testimonials

Feedback From Our Students

 

General:

"The Veterinary Herbal Apprenticeship & Retreat course you and Kris taught was phenomenal and life changing. I was blown away by how thorough and generous you are with your knowledge. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was to learn so much. You are so full of enthusiasm, generosity, and striving for excellence in what you do. I am so grateful Laurie. Kris’ wisdom, knowledge, peaceful demeanor, and encouragement added so much to the self care part of the course. I think about what both of you taught us every day out here in the trenches.

 

On Our Materia Medica:

"The lectures were great--lots of good information. I like the inclusion of traditional uses and energetics of the herbs--gives insight into subtleties of herbal action."

 

On Our Labs:

"Labs were fun and informative and helped me gain confidence in making herbal products for self and family (which I do a lot now)."

 

On Our Herb Walks:

"Loved them! Seeing, touching, tasting, smelling plants in their natural environment deepened my connection with them and appreciation of them as living entities. "

 

On Our Homeworks:

"These gave me a welcome "excuse" to spend time researching herbs I didn't know much about. I also gained insights into the way information can be misrepresented on the Internet. Sometimes it was confusing and difficult to sort out 'the real story'."

OVERVIEW:

It’s challenging in today’s world of unpredictability and hectic daily life to build and maintain healthy habits. But more and more, self-care is being recognized as essential for not just surviving, but thriving. We know it takes more than a few days or a short course to build a daily self-care routine.

 

Over a period of nine months, we move through the seasons, considering their natural influences on our activities and self-care needs. This course will introduce many ways of nurturing yourself and those around you, and its relaxed schedule provides time to pick and choose what works for you and your lifestyle. Participants are supported in building personal habits of gentle self-care following the natural cycles of life, which include not only hard work and physical exercise, but also rest, healing, celebration, community, remembrance and gratitude.

OVERVIEW:

This conference is intended to educate the veterinarian in Ayurvedic theory and its implementation into food and herbal therapy.  Many of the herbs used in Ayurveda are also used in Western and Chinese Herbal Medicine. There will be introductory talks about Ayurvedic Theory, with explanation of the Elements, Doshas (personality types), Gunas (traits of each personality type), Dhatus (tissues), and the concept of Agni (digestive fire).  This will progress into a more in-depth look at interpreting Ayurvedic Materia Medica, followed by actual Materia Medica for foods and herbs. All lectures include an organoleptic/tactile component.  The last day will be spent as a cooking lab, putting the Materia Medica into practice, with a fun “quiz” at the end!  We will be preparing both foods and herbal remedies, and students will have the opportunity to learn techniques and sample what is prepared.
