| Cutting Edge Ayurvedic Herbalism in Modern America|
Presented by Karta Purkh Singh Khalsa, DN-C, RH, LMT, NCTMB, RC
The world is becoming a small place. Herbalism is rapidly on its way to being truly global. The presenter's unique background in Ayurvedic herbalism and four-decade career in America combine to create a rare perspective on the global scene. He will share outstanding, clinically proven therapies from the depth of Ayurveda. An therapist can enhance her/his repertoire with these herbs. The emphasis will be on lesser known, practical therapies that will be exceptional additions to the herbal lifestyle toolkit, but which are reasonably priced, reasonably available, and potent.
Special emphasis will be placed on herbs that are of particular interest to therapists and the unique situations they see in their lives and practices. Included will be a discussion on setting up an on-site retail dispensary that can be beneficial for your clients as well as prosperous for your practice.
Case studies and group interaction will make this important topic accessible to all attendees.
Enrollment is done on-line during your registration process. Only NAMA Members who are current Practitioners and advanced students are eligible for attending practicums. You will be able to select the practicum(s) you wish to attend during registration. You will be asked to confirm your qualification for attendance.
Practicums may be added or deleted later by modifying your registration; however, because class size is limited due to the active participation in practicums, you will only be able to enroll if there is space available. A waiting list will be established once maximum enrollment has been reached, but there is no guarantee that space will open. Those on the waiting list will be notified in order of registration date should a space become available.
If any space remains available once the conference begins, qualified Practitioners and/or advanced students may sign up at the conference. If the sessions are full, no additional attendees will be accepted.
