Ayurvedic Apprenticeship with Anne McIntyre

Anne is offering a unique opportunity of studying with her for a series of 4 two day workshops each year devised for herb lovers, students and practitioners alike. She will introduce you to the basic and yet inspiring concepts of Ayurveda and relate these to an understanding of yourselves and others as well as to the use of herbs, Western and Ayurvedic.

The apprenticeship is a perfect complement to Anne’s other courses, A Beginner’s Guide to Ayurveda and Living Wisdom; The Foundation of Ayurveda. It can also be a stand alone course.

The course will be held at Anne’s home in the Cotswolds, where she has a beautiful herb garden with over 150 medicinal plants, laid out in a spiral that represents a journey through a woman’s life expressed through herbs.
