Thank You East West School of Planetary Herbology

Estimated read time... 2 minutes

As many of you, my dear readers, know, I graduated from the East West School of Planetary Herbology in May 2014. Michael and Lesley Tierra crafted a wonderful course, encompassing Western, Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine, to create a planetary approach to herbalism and wellness. When I started the course, it was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time (thank you Jason, Mom and Dad for giving me the extra nudge to sign up!)

I cannot imagine what my life would be like without East West; everything started clicking into place.

The past few years have been a whirlwind of activity, change and growth thanks to East West.

Not too far into my journey at East West, I was given the opportunity to help arrange a  hour-long study group once a week through the school’s student-only site. This study group eventually morphed into a weekly class, which I’ve been officially teaching for well over a year now (since June 2013!), revolving around the foundational theory of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

It’s so amazing and humbling; each class I teach fills me with appreciation for the opportunity that the school has given me. I cannot thank Michael, Lesley, Jill, the teachers and students at East West School enough.

Within each class, I learn something new, get pushed into new territory and thought patterns, examine different ways of approaching the topic, and am fueled into continued learning.  Teaching at East West is a way that I’m able to give back to the school that has given me so much.

It is a huge honor to be teaching at a school such as East West. To be considered one of the teachers amongst what I consider the best herbal teachers and students, and best herb school one could ever ask for, leaves me overflowing with gratitude.

Thank you East West School of Planetary Herbology, for everything you have given me.
