Spirit of the Herbs Audio for CEUs

Many of us began studying Chinese herbs with passion and fascination…  and then dread, boredom, and overwhelm when the descriptions of the herbal energetics became as dry and dusty as the ancient herb samples in the dispensary. Do you ever feel like you need to start over, in order to feel the herbs as poetry and music? Do you long to know the herbs as friends with whom you share deeply?

The Spirit of the Herbs complete audio compendium includes 60 hours’ worth of meticulously curated teachings on 40 of the most common formulas and 100 common singles. It also includes 279 pages of course notes and study aids, all of which reflect the practicality, directness, and freshness of the inimitable Spirit of the Herbs teaching style.
