Jambalaya is a 4 part intensive course which will introduce students to the basic principles of Traditional African Medicine. We will journey through time following T.A.M. from the smallest village nestled in the forest to the open expanses of Egypt, and across the Atlantic into the Americas.

During this course we’ll be discussing the stigmas and taboos surrounding African Medicine and Spirituality while bridging the gap between the past and present. We will dig deeper into the medical philosophies of the African throughout their diaspora and discover what plants are commonly used, the many ways they are prepared and administered, along with the traditional ways illness is identified.

With spirituality at the very core of T.A.M. we will gain insight into the spiritual world of healing, intuiting a better understanding of plants and their spiritual uses. In this course you will begin to build a solid foundation in medicine making where we’ll learn how to make tinctures, syrups, tea blends and more the African way! This 4-part course will give students the basic knowledge to work with traditional remedies for your everyday common ails.
