"I thoroughly enjoyed this course. It helped me anchor my thinking, giving me a deeper understanding of the principles of physiology and how to apply those principles in practice. As I came to understand the principle of the six conformations, it soon became ‘my’ way of thinking. Things which had puzzled me for a long time started to make sense. The system is logical and although on the surface seems simple, it soon becomes apparent there is great depth in the meaning behind it.
The course is presented methodically, step by step. The pace of learning and the amount of material presented was perfect for me. The initial focus is on understanding the principle, then on using it to make a diagnosis. The herbs then seem to fit effortlessly into the pattern, whereby you can construct your formula with an enhanced understanding, rather than just acceptance, of why the herbs do what they do!
Marina is an enthusiastic and supportive teacher who is willing to share her knowledge and experience, gently guiding you through the learning process. Once you grasp the foundations, the practice becomes fascinating and engaging as well as challenging. Marina is readily available to answer questions throughout the course and beyond, so students need never feel isolated as they find their way in practice. I thoroughly recommend Marina’s teaching and feel inspired to continue with further study."
