ACVBM ANNUAL HERBWALK
The American College of Veterinary Botanical Medicine celebrated its third annual conference recently in San Diego, California, October 3-4, 2017. Our conference started with an herb walk led by Dr. Ihor Basko. This was a sense based experience with the participants selecting a few plants that ‘called’ to them. Then sitting in silence with the plant, one attempted to hear them, smell them, sense them, using all of ones sensory capabilities. It was a wonderful experience to just be with the plants and to try to discern their personalities without relying on a book for information.
"I personally will be using it as a guide. It should be especially useful for those living in the area and are thinking about using local herbs in
their practice. I am planning my herb walk to be more experiential than didactic learning so that the experience can be used in their own locale. I would like people to take pictures of those they find interesting or "are calling to them" and spend some time with the plant...feeling, sensing, tasting, and hearing them."
A slideshow of images we captured is below. More will be added as received.
