Herbal Remedies Workshop

This workshop is designed for those interested in learning more about the culture and wisdom of herbal medicine and remedies in the Peruvian Andes. It is an excellent opportunity to engage in conversations about local health beliefs and traditions. You’ll work side-by-side with Sacred Valley Health’s community health workers and local staff to make an herbal preparation. At the end of the day, you’ll go home with a travel-size herbal balm or tincture. (We offer anectdoctal stories about the use of herbs in the communities. We do not give medical treatment or advice.) We offer a couple versions of this workshop:
