Herb Immersion Workshop

Herb Tasting, Discussion and In Depth Training

  Enroll in Course

Participants will work directly with plants, looking, touching, smelling, brewing, tasting and discussing over 100 Chinese medicinal herbs. Discussion will utilize classical Chinese concepts such as flavor and nature, yin and yang qualities and inherent potency to understand the clinical application of single herbs and their combination in formulas. Most importantly, herbs will be understood through comparing and contrasting and direct experience.

This course was designed as a hands-on and in depth complement to the Classical Herbalist Online course. Participants in the herb workshop are not required to purchase the online program for attendance, but we do feel both hands on and theoretical learning are crucial to becoming a confident and effective herbalist.

JulieAnn Nugent-Head

After hospital internships in China during the summers of 2003 and 2004, JulieAnn moved to China full time to document two of Beijing’s most famous traditional practitioners Dr Li Hongxiang (1924-2018) and Dr Chen Tongyun (1922 -). This exposure to classically based clinical medicine led JulieAnn to understand the naturalistic perspective and utter practicality of Chinese medicine in a new light. Encouraged by Dr Li to complete doctoral level studies, JulieAnn's focused on the classical perspective of herbs investigating the flavor and nature of the herbal substances applied in the Shanghan Lun.


After eight and a half years living in China, JulieAnn and husband Andrew returned to the United States due to changing visa and regulations for foreigners practicing medicine. Now residing in Asheville, North Carolina, JulieAnn treats patients at the Alternative Clinic, oversees development of Appalasia tea and herb farm, and teaches post graduate herb programs in Zurich, London and Frankfurt.
