Join the Experience!

You Can Still Join the 2021 AHG Online Symposium Experience!

This year's virtual Symposium is over but we recorded EVERYTHING and you can still purchase a Symposium ticket that gives you access to all of the recordings until March 18, 2022. View video recordings of classes and download handouts anytime. 

The practice of herbal medicine is being transformed by global changes brought about by climate change, social justice issues, and the pandemic. What are herbalists doing to adapt? Our Symposium speakers shared their experiences navigating changes, visions for the future, and a generous dose of inspiration. 

About Our Online Symposium

Recovery, Resistance, Resilience: Trauma-Informed Herbal Healthcare was the theme of the 32nd AHG Annual Symposium.

Timely Symposium topics including: protocols for healing trauma and its wide-ranging impact on health, clinical approaches to specific health conditions such as cancer care, menstrual health, end of life care, herbs for rescue animals, and even – on the lighter side - inspiration for making herbal cocktails! Herbal beginners, herb school students, and experienced practitioners alike will find new ways to expand their understanding of botanical healing at the Symposium.

Get Inspired! Keynote Speakers David Hoffmann and Anjali Taneja shared their wisdom.

We are delighted to feature two keynote presentations as part of Symposium. Friday evening’s keynote is Herbalism and Social Resilience: An Outsider’s Perspective by David Hoffmann, noted herbalist, teacher, and author. Saturday evening’s keynote is Solidarity Medicine: Creating Integrative Anti-Racist Systems of Care and Building Power with Community by Dr. Anjali Taneja, family physician and Executive Director of Casa de Salud in Albuquerque, NM.
