Testimonials

Feedback From Our Students

 

General:

"The Veterinary Herbal Apprenticeship & Retreat course you and Kris taught was phenomenal and life changing. I was blown away by how thorough and generous you are with your knowledge. I cannot begin to tell you how excited I was to learn so much. You are so full of enthusiasm, generosity, and striving for excellence in what you do. I am so grateful Laurie. Kris’ wisdom, knowledge, peaceful demeanor, and encouragement added so much to the self care part of the course. I think about what both of you taught us every day out here in the trenches.

 

On Our Materia Medica:

"The lectures were great--lots of good information. I like the inclusion of traditional uses and energetics of the herbs--gives insight into subtleties of herbal action."

 

On Our Labs:

"Labs were fun and informative and helped me gain confidence in making herbal products for self and family (which I do a lot now)."

 

On Our Herb Walks:

"Loved them! Seeing, touching, tasting, smelling plants in their natural environment deepened my connection with them and appreciation of them as living entities. "

 

On Our Homeworks:

"These gave me a welcome "excuse" to spend time researching herbs I didn't know much about. I also gained insights into the way information can be misrepresented on the Internet. Sometimes it was confusing and difficult to sort out 'the real story'."
