Testimonials from Students

"I had taken a couple classes from KP at conferences and was impressed with his teaching style and experience. Admittedly, I was a little hesitant to take the class because I live far from Seattle (it was a 10 hour round trip drive) but after only one day in the class with KP I knew I had made the right decision.

It's easy to go to an herbal school these days where it is often taught, for example, that burdock is good for acne. But if someone is wanting to go into clinical practice, the herb or formula is only a small piece of the entire puzzle. Patient compliance, constitution, ethics, dosages, duration, contra-indications, expectations, patient-client relationship, maintaining an herbal apothecary, etc is really the heart of clinical herbalism. All of these topics and more are thoroughly covered in this course. Every day of that class I left with my head buzzing with critical clinical information.

KP is one of the most experienced herbalists of our time and learning from his lifetime of knowledge is a rare treat. Classes are well organized, contain an excellent balance of lecture vs. discussion and there is a plethora of valuable class handouts that I continue to reference two years later. I was continually impressed that while KP offered a lot of excellent information he also asked provocative questions that drew out critical thinking and advanced discussions. I recommend this course to anyone wishing to be a practicing herbalist."

"Just wanted to say that I really enjoyed the home course on Ayurveda that KP taught through Floracopeia. I'm looking forward to the nutrition course through PCC. Great information and very useful. I've made some changes in my own life and am starting to see result already. Some of my clients are also benefitting. Many thanks for all the great teaching!"
-- Cheryl Ann Hannah, CKP

"I am writing to express to you how much I appreciated your instruction this past term in Bot Med III. You speak modestly but with authority, from experience, and you shared with us the quintessence of a life in healing. Especially your materials, which were always posted on Moodle on time, respecting us students by the materials' admirable organization and layout, that accomplished communication and not simply rote exposition."
