We invite you to attend an exciting new conference celebrating the diverse traditions that make up Western Herbalism. TWHC fulfills the need for a gathering together of many of our time's most vital voices into a single forum to provide inspiration and knowledge to a growing population of herbal students of all levels. This is a unique event with special emphasis placed on experiential learning and hands-on understanding. Our teachers speak from the voice of experience and practice rather than theory, resulting in powerful instruction and insight based on real life work.
TWHC is committed to grassroots herbalism with a strong bioregional and energetic focus. Melding common sense practicality with spiritual and indigenous sensibilities, the practice of our trade with the lessons of the natural world. Today's plant-based healers are the most recent in a long line of herbwives, root doctors, yerberas, mountain men, curanderos, grannywomen and village herbalists that stretch back through time and across cultures. From the hills of Appalachia to the shores of Cornwall, the rainforests of the Amazon to the mesas and canyons of the Southwest, we are walking in the footsteps of our ancestors to bring together people and plants at a time when such work has never before been so necessary and urgent.
We will be exploring the evolving traditions of Western herbalism through presentations, workshops, classes, panel discussions, intensives, plant walks and much more! Join us for an unforgettable immersion in a compelling blend of traditional wisdom and innovative new approaches.
Perfect for beginning herbal enthusiasts and experienced practitioners alike
