Herbal Intensives at the Ranch Study in-person with Tieraona

We offer Herbal Intensive courses each year for those who want more “hands-on, face-to-face” learning. These deeply experiential courses are held in the midst of the majestic Santa Fe National Forest on Dr. Low Dog’s Medicine Lodge Ranch.

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, we will only be hosting two herbal intensives in person this year, and these courses are both full. Please contact support@medicinelodgeranch.com if you'd like to be added to the waitlist.

While there are few things more special to us than hosting you all at our ranch for our summer herbal intensives, we’ve had to make some incredibly difficult decisions regarding these offerings given the current climate of uncertainty our society is facing.

Taking into consideration the guidance of our local and national guidelines, we will be moving several herbal intensives to a virtual experience. This will include morning coffee/tea with Tieraona, Q&As, and even our famous Herbal Happy Hour on Zoom, as well as a series of instructional videos that will be available for a full week so you can soak in more information even after the intensive is over!

Virtual Herbal Intensive Courses

Virtual herbal intensives allow you to study directly with Dr. Low Dog, even when time or circumstances don't allow you to make it out to the ranch. These intensives also span a full two-day period, just like the in-person courses, and allow you to learn from and interact with Dr. Low Dog from the comfort of your own home!

If you want to go deep into the world of herbal medicine, these courses are highly informative, engaging, practical and rejuvenating. Please note: even though these courses are virtual, we still limit class sizes so that we can give students individual attention.
