Herbal Classes

I believe that part of studying herbal medicine is spending time with the plants out in Nature.

    Travel Information for Herbal Intensives:

    Classes are held at Medicine Lodge Ranch outside of Pecos, NM, most people fly into Albuquerque, NM and rent a car for the easy one hour drive to Santa Fe (all Interstate 25), and stay in a hotel in Santa Fe. The Santa Fe Plaza area is a great vacation spot with unique shopping and awesome restaurants – or – stay in the Pecos Valley area. We help with directions and car-pooling to our meeting spot just outside of Pecos, NM (see map below) and then drive up together to Medicine Lodge Ranch for the class.
