$15/person or *Bring a friend for $20
Location TBD, Register for more info.

We intuitively know that some emotions are rooted and connected to certain organs. We speak of our "gut instincts" or someone having a lot of "Gall" and we know what it means. Imbalances in an organ can affect our emotions and vice versa. By understanding the relationship, we can better serve ourselves and others in our search for most joyful, healthy, abundant life.

"Energetic Diagnostics: Reading the Face, Tongue and Pulse"

@ Dandelion Seed Conference, Olympia, Wa
October 18th, 11:00 a.m.

As an herbalist we are required to assess and understand what is going on inside a person's body and within their organs with out the use of high tech medical equipment and tests. But, that's okay! It is how medicine worked for the majority of human history. And, there are reliable and consistent ways to assess what you cannot see deep with in the body tissues by using markers expressed where we CAN see. This class is based on 6 years of clinical experience, as well as, my work with herbalist and author Matthew Wood. Students will get a basic overview of how to "see" stress, disease, organ weakness, and energetic imbalances as they manifest on the face, tongue, body and in the pulse. A basic understanding of energetics and tissue states is recommended; as this short intro class will focus on how to read the maps of the body but will not cover an in depth lesson on what tissue states are or mean for treatment.

Developing and Utilizing a language of energetics for understanding people and nature is a powerful tool for healing yourself, balancing relationships, overcoming blocks and obstacles in your life.

In this class, we will learn and practice a system of energetic medicine that is influenced by Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, and Homeopathy. We will learn:
 - Seeing and understanding Constitutions
 - How to MATCH plant medicine with people rather than with their symptoms
 - Tools to recognize patterns of imbalance by connecting organs and emotions
 - Speak to and read energetic patterns using my system of 5 elements
 - Hone  your own intuition as a human in relationship or as healers and practitioners

Each student will leave the class with a better understanding of themselves and others.
