  2. We’d love to learn more about using herbal medicine for strength, prevention and healing. We opted out of the flu shot but would still like to feel armed for the season. It’s nice to know that such a school exists so close to home.

  3. Thank you for offering this workshop at such a time. So many in the community are feeling stressed or torn about how to respond. Our families health is a place of deep and primal concern and it is so easy to be motivated by fear or discouraged by the complexity and diversity of information in the public purview. I have always wanted to attend one of your workshops and with a family of three children, all unvaccinated, I would love to learn some new perspectives on supporting their health without invasive or suppressive methodologies.

  4. I think it is better to use herbals whenever possible.
    We have no interest in the vaccine hype, and, therefore, wish to strengthen ourselves naturally. We are eager to learn more.
