Begins August 30th. 12 Wednesday evenings from 5:30-8:30

In my 24+ years of teaching and practice, one of the greatest things that I treasure and am most thankful for is seeing how the information or treatment I offer has helped someone in their life. Whether that is seeing a student graduate and build their own career, or helping someone get over bronchitis. Maybe it was helping a parent understand their child’s pathology. Maybe it was helping someone through grief. Whatever the necessity has been, I have been tremendously blessed to find such a life’s calling and I love sharing it.

My objective with running this program is to help bring the knowledge and wisdom of holistic health, Asian medicine and nutrition into the people’s everyday lives.  Think of it as the a lighter version of the Amma Program without learning the bodywork.

Participants will meet once a week in the evening for lecture.  There will also be online lessons and study group. The program is effectively 48 hours of education time.
