***We plan to have dates and times set for this class and registration open by March 31st, 2020***
Our Herbalist Clinical Theater is an opportunity to experience and learn from a herbal clinician (Ginger Webb) meeting with a client for a health consultation. We will be using Michael Moore’s principles of constitutional physiology to guide us; it is a powerful system and intake, and enables us to have a “handhold” of some sorts to determine a direction or course of action. As I do in my own practice, we will build upon Michael’s significant foundational tools, and bring in other systems, observations, and intuitions as needed. We will get to witness the “one drop” test with the client, administering one drop of a particular tincture, to see how the client responds. This is a powerful way to gain confidence in the herbs we choose for the final formula, as well as a powerful way for the client to trust the process: they feel the energy of the herb in their own body/energy, and they get to decide yay or nay. Finally, we will go through a prolonged formulation process for each client.
Student participation is primarily watch-and-learn, although questions and insights will be welcomed if they feel particularly important or relevant. The intention of the theater is to be able to experience one method for conducting an intake so that you can take that and run with it with your own flavor of brilliance and intuition.
So, who are the clients? We will all be drawing from our communities of friends and family to bring in folks who are willing to participate in the clinical theater, receiving a free consultation and the option to purchase a 4oz custom formulation. Each SJS student will need to wrangle up one client minimum.
There are no books to purchase but there are free manuals you will need to either (1) download from Michael’s website, or (2) have printed and bound on your own (we have this set up at FedEx Office- if you would like them all formatted and in one place you can purchase from us. Price will depend on # ordered, but is usually around $65). There are also hours of Michael’s lectures to listen to online, over the course of the next month or so. More information about all of this will be provided once you register.
