The most complete course in Herbalism

I am very excited to review the Internship in Herbal Medicine, as it has been a special moment of growth for me, both personally and academically.
The teachers are extremely professional, bright and helpful. I have been inspired by their work and ideas. Alquimia is the perfect hub for learning and development. It is a quiet, spiritual place sorrounded by nature and wonderful gardens.
The whole practice gave me a variety of tools and techniques to work with.
My favourite part is the laboratory work, soapmaking and cacao processing. I particularly enjoyed the morning meditation and the forest trips in the afternoon, to be able to forage plants, collect and process them the same day..beautiful.
I appreciate the ability of the teachers to hold such a diverse knowledge on ancestral and natural medicine..biology, physiology, chemistry, antrophology, cosmology and so on.
I said, this the most complete course I have found until now. Intensive, fullfilling.
Thank you very much.
Very, very suggested!

spiritual and personal growth

I enrolled the course 3 months ago and I think it's one of the best move in my life. After travelling around I had the feeling to be lost and restless. Alquimia has been my home, my shelter, my school and my space for finding again harmony and balance. It's not just a course, it's an inspiration.
Through the ancient Maya wisdom I learnt how to approach plants from a different point of view and now I want to apply this new relationship on my self-healing.
I spent days in the forest collecting plants with locals and I send all my appreciation to my teacher/guide/shaman.
I will love to come back one day.

I have been studying for 2 months at Alquimia, extending my staying and enjoying a one week retreat in the forest to close my personal path of knowledge.
The variety of information and the precious wisdom and support offered have been a guidance for me. I will always have memories of the whole experience.
The nature around is simply outstanding and I felt the great benefit of living a simple life with delicious food and meditation.
The locals are friendly and I particularly enjoyed the community living.
Fantastic course and life changing experience.
