“The creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn.”
–Ralph Waldo Emerson
This is a one-day workshop held at the Acorn School of Herbal Medicine in Nevada City, CA. It is open to the public, whether you are a health care professional, an outdoors enthusiast, just completing your Wilderness First Aid certification or an herbalist — this workshop has lots of great information to share.
Sam Coffman began his medical education in the military as a U.S. Special Forces Medic (aka Green Beret medic) in 1989. A few years prior to this he had already become highly interested in herbalism as a way to provide health care in remote regions with a minimum of medical supplies – both for acute care and trauma as well as for chronic conditions. This was the start of a long journey into the world of plant medicine for Sam, and after thousands of clinical hours as both a medic on teams and in military emergency rooms, as well as working with herbs throughout following decades, Sam’s primary goal has become the creation of an integrative medical model that embraces both vitalistic and mechanistic aspects of herbalism into a collaboration with orthodox and energetic models of diagnosis and treatment.
