After the first round of application which closed August 25, 2022, our schedule is almost complete, with very few workshop spaces available. We continue to welcome applications until these last few spots are filled.
OUR THEME THIS YEAR IS TRENDS AND TRADITIONS.
Herbal medicine is both traditional and trend-setting. All cultures have their own traditions of plant medicines, and these traditions are now being adapted and refreshed for use in the modern age. Trends may originate from tradition and expand upon past knowledge, but magic and meaning is often lost in the process.
How do we connect with the medicine of our ancestors and bring it into the modern age?
How do trends inform the practice of herbalism and affect the sustainability of our medicines?
We invite you to join us for this 4-day online conference to uncover gems from the past, dig into the roots of herbal medicine, and dive into new research and unfolding trends as we collectively weave the practice of modern Canadian herbalism while staying true to our traditions.
