There is so much great information available about herbs and herbal medicine, so many references and resources, so much detail - and then there is clinical practice and real life. What do you do when 'the rubber hits the road'? How do you distill it all, discern the truth from the fable and how do you apply it to a patient?

This 'open mike' type discussion will give you a chance to ask a practicing herbalist about what's on your mind. It might be a clinical question, maybe a follow up to one of the previous lectures of the season, maybe a question about growing or processing herbs, maybe even esoteric and energetic topics - we'll try and cover them all!

Please send questions or discussion points in advance so they can be sorted and grouped for easier review. Participants will also be able to post comments and join the discussion during the class.
