Join Us for the 34th Annual AHG Symposium!

Early registration is now open for the 34th AHG Symposium, held October 13 to 16, 2023, at the Snow Mountain YMCA of the Rockies in Granby, Colorado

Snow Mountain YMCA offers 5000+ acres in the majestic Rocky Mountains, with hiking trails, plentiful outdoor activities, and affordable lodging options that include all meals. Arrive early to get familiar with the stunning terrain and join us Friday for community plant walks and educational pre-intensives

Preserving Herbal Legacies is an inspiring celebration of herbal lineages including over 25 place and culture-based sessions from a plethora of herbal pathways! Contemporary herbal practice has grown from the roots of heritage herbal traditions from a diversity of bioregions and sociocultural streams, from Hoodoo rootwork to the Pueblo preparations of the southwest U.S. to Daodi processing methods. The 2023 Symposium blends cutting edge clinical skills with unique experiences, case studies, and narratives drawn from this vast global pool of herbal knowledge. 

For those polishing clinical skills, this year’s certificate track focuses on Low Dose Botanicals in Clinical Practice. Throughout the program, classes taught by skilled herbal clinicians offer guidance on the safe usage of low dose herbs with insights on internal and topical applications. A comprehensive Monday day-long post-intensive takes a deep dive into low dose materia medica for those seeking to earn the certificate. 

In addition to the in-person event, select sessions are available both live-streamed and as recordings. And as we all recover from all the Zooming of the Covid years, we're emphasizing experiential, tech-free classes that engage the senses and herb walks to introduce you to the local flora. 

But to be honest, the AHG Symposium is about more than just education. It nourishes our dream of continuing to build a vibrant, inclusive network of herbalists providing care for their communities. The weekend's events include opportunities to meet and socialize with other herb folks at the Maypop Mixer and our legendary Saturday night dance party! And once again, the Vendor Fair showcases herbal businesses of every kind providing both companies and herbalists a unique opportunity to meet and exchange information. 

We hope you can join us as we honor those who have inspired us as we carry on their legacies in our own lives and practices!
