The Roots and Branches of Perennial Medicine

At first glance, our world today appears to be beset by problems that humanity has never faced before, and equally full of dazzling miracles that are almost as difficult for our cultures to integrate. In such radically changing times, we need deep roots. We need to become familiar with the wisdom traditions that teach us how to remain healthy and undistracted, rooted in our natural rhythm and purpose. Only then can we serve life through its many changes. To that end, Thea offers classes, consults, and CEUs in each of these subjects.

Live Classes

Live classes with Thea Elijah are an opportunity to explore, experience, interact and engage. Our learning style is what the Chinese call Gan Dong, “the transmission of knowledge that takes place only when the heart is moved.” Sometimes we have an astonishing range of different kinds of classes planned! Other times, you may not see what you are looking for, so ask, and let us know what would interest you.
