Herbal Medicine Summit 2024

Herbal medicine is a world unto itself. As botanical medicine practitioners, we love to hear and share our tales, knowing that it will enrich and empower us to bring the very best back to our clients, helping us remember the power of our modality.

We hope you can join us on 25 & 26 May for a weekend of deep wisdom and clinical pearls offered by the very best in the profession delivering a program carefully curated by the NHAA. It will be a time of connection and community with friends, associates and mentors with plenty of opportunities for enjoying incredible natural surrounds built right into the program.

Our program is complete and in addition to the wonderful presenters we’ve curated, we’re including some fabulous new initiatives for you to enjoy!

Pearls of Practice is an exclusive interactive session where seasoned mentors from various fields come together to share their invaluable insights and wisdom around topics such as ‘Actioning Sustainability’, ‘Social Media Tips for Practice’, ‘Domestic Violence Support’, ‘Genetic Testing’ and much more. It’s designed as an intimate 20 minute round table gathering giving you the opportunity to take a seat at a total of 3 tables during the 1 hour session. Much more than a workshop; it’s an opportunity to tap into the wealth of experience that mentors bring to the table. Choose your tables here. Pearls of Practice bookings will open on 30 April.

We’re looking to nurture the Naturopaths and Herbalists of tomorrow so we are including a ‘Pathways to Success’ panel discussion into the program designed to inspire and inform students on a wide range of topics relevant to students and new graduates. This panel discussion session will be open to ALL naturopathy and herbalism students and new graduates. Click here to find out more and secure your place.

We’re building a series of Energiser Sessions into our program designed to invigorate and refresh. Attendees will have the opportunity to take part in a 30 min Qigong session or a 30 min Laughter Yoga session.
