Evolver’s East Meets West Medicine Fest: Herbalism at the Opera
Join fellow herbalists and plant medicine enthusiasts for an afternoon of unconventional herbalism seminars, interactive plant medicine meditations and a tablespoon of Opera (to help the medicine go down) at Evolver’s inaugural East Meets West Medicine Fest, where eastern and western traditions of herbal plant medicine are united as one. Presenters will offer their herbal wisdom from the stage of the National Opera Center in NYC, focusing on the intersection of eastern schools of herbalism with local, “western” herbs. The topics covered will include: Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, The Doctrine of Signatures, Shamanism, Alchemy and much more. Local herbalism schools and organizations will be tabling, providing information about their programs, and offering products. We will wrap up the evening with an auction for fantastic items like Evolver webinars, trainings in herbalism, books and much more.
Presentations will introduce basic concepts before entering more advanced territory, and are intended for beginner and advanced practitioners alike. Specially blended herbal tea options and refreshments will be served. There will also be raffles, performances, and networking opportunities. Presenters will be available to answer questions during breaks. Seating is very limited, so it is advised that you purchase ticket well in advance.
11am-12: Reception. Check in and engage with local sponsors and other herbalists. Refreshments will be served.
