This 2 day course is for herbal medicine practitioners/ students wishing to gain a deeper insight into working with the herbs alongside the 4 elements, the temperments and astrology. The weekend includes a special guided plant meditation with Elisabeth around our outdoor fire at the woodland and herb garden.

In this weekend course we will o discuss how to use astrology, the four temperments and the herbs to understand disease states, to treat them and prevent them. We will focus on how by understanding the temperments and the planst associated with them we can, as herbal practitioners, chose our remedies with precision for our clients.
