"Tammi is the best kind of teacher ~ Enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and impassioned. Whether she's teaching about plants or the body, she infuses everything with energy and passion."
- Rosemary Gladstar, Sage Mountain
This curriculum is designed to move through the body, from the outside in. You can switch between self-study or participating in the live, 8 week guided program which includes live Q&A discussions.
We start on the “outside” (skin, lining of the respiratory and digestive systems are actually considered outside) and work our way inside (into the blood or lymph), like your food, your medicine or foreign pathogens.
Once inside, we’ll look at how your body defends itself through the Immune and Lymphatic Systems. We’ll look at how the Muscle system and Skeletal system work together to allow for movement of the body.
Then we look at the 3 ways your body communicates within itself; electrically through the Nervous system, chemically through the Endocrine system, and mechanically through the connective tissue.
We will round out the course with two weeks of learning how the men and women’s reproductive systems work, and how are body rids itself of wastes through the Urinary system.
Check out the curriculum, and sample lesson on the physiology of pain to learn more.
"...even the things I already know from years of self-study are made clearer & more applicable to my work by Tammi's fine teaching.
For me this online course is time and money well spent!"
