Western Herbs from an Ayurvedic Perspective

A unique course for those with a comprehensive knowledge of Ayurveda who would like to discover the healing potential of the wonderful array of herbs that grow around us here in the West. The course will be divided into four parts according to the seasons and we will encourage students to forage for plants locally and really develop a relationship with local and native herbs.

Concern about the environment and awareness of the need to live as sustainably as we can, it is time to consider the wisdom and sustainability of using herbs grown out of sight thousands of miles away in India and other far corners of the earth. It is vital to ensure that our plant medicines are of the best quality, free from pollution, correctly identified and produced with minimal impact on the environment. Growing, harvesting and preparing our own herbal remedies is the best way of ensuring this.

The course includes over 60 detailed herbal monographs, explanations of the relationship between Western and Ayurvedic classifications of herbs and practical advice on how to prepare and use these herbs as medicines. It is invaluable to those interested in an Ayurvedic approach to life, maintenance of health and treatment of health problems – practitioners, students and lay people alike – who want to develop their knowledge and extend the range of the herbs they currently use.
