July 10 – 13, 2017

Advanced Plant Spirit Medicine

with Alison Gayek & Eliot Cowan 

"Without the guidance of Eliot's teachings and the time with my colleagues, I may have actually given up. Instead, I made a commitment to my learning..."

Once again, I deepened my skills and understanding of our medicine by getting feedback on my pulse taking, emotion testing (and color, sound, and odor), ability to assess CF and the all important area of client management. Without the guidance of Eliot's teachings and the time with my colleagues, I may have eventually given up. Instead, I made a commitment to my learning and have attended every clinical and Advanced Class I could possibly attend.”

--A 1999 Graduate

“I graduated in July 2003 and after I presented a client and passed the pulse test I was given the authority to go out and practice this medicine. Whoa!!... I was truly a bit overwhelmed and feeling that I might not really have what it took to offer this medicine to people… I go to Advanced Class because it is such a great support to see colleagues who are just beginning and colleagues who are seasoned come together and share the same types of successes and insecurities. It is great to come and be reassured by our teachers that we are exactly where we are suppose to be.”

--A 2003 Graduate

Come and join us for an exciting adventure with the Plant Spirit Medicine Advanced Class. Open to all who have graduated from the PSM Training Course, the Advanced Class is helpful to those whose practice is going well and are ready to go deeper in the mystery of healing and the plants; for those who feel stuck as a healer and in their practice; as well as those who are just beginning. No matter where you are in your practice, the Advanced Class will challenge you and help you go deeper into your medicine. Through immersion into timeless practices of this medicine, this course is designed to inspire you and help you discover a new resonance with something old.

Just as no two Advanced Classes are the same, there are no two people in need of healing who are exactly alike. Discover and exercise your abilities to provide your clients with the exact healing they need. Ask your pressing questions about the medicine and your clients. Set in a collegial format, the Advanced Class is the next step in your work as a PSM healer.

Scheduled just before the Plant Spirit Medicine Conference, you will be able to make your travel plans to allow attendance at both programs.

The Advanced Class will include topics not limited to:

  • Pulse Diagnosis
  • Assessment of CF
  • Client Management
  • Treatment Planning
  • Dream Journey work
  • Plant Studies
  • Individual Questions
  • Furthering our Effectiveness with PSM

You will receive 21 Clinical CEU's for this program.

40 CEU's every two years are required for certification. 20 of these must be clinical CEU's.
