The 2020 Sacred Heart of Herbalism Level 2

February 15 @ 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This advanced herbalism class takes the Sacred Heart of Herbalism to the next level with a heavy focus on the specific body systems, specific recommendations for the overall health of each system, discussion of the common disorders for each system and the best herbs, and forms for that particular system, ailments and individual constitutions.
