The High Desert Hari Society in collaboration with the New York Kampo Institute hosts a monthly virtual study group with Nigel Dawes on Kampo Medicine.  

For 2023, we will return to the study group’s original format, focusing on therapeutics and the treatment of named disease. Content covered will include notes and quizzes from the full Kampo training program. 

We will have the opportunity in each study group to have an in depth conversation about the formulas presented. Each study group will be led by Nigel and there will be plenty of time for questions, discussion, and feedback. The study groups will be held on one Monday each month via Zoom and will run from 9-10:30pm Eastern Standard Time. Communication and logistics will be handled primarily by Acazia Gilmore. Registrants will also receive recordings of all of the 2023 classes. 

Additionally, students will be invited to enjoy the Kampo Google Group.  The Google group is a place for Nigel’s students to ask questions and exchange information between the monthly Zoom meeting.  It is a place to interact with other students, follow up on patient progress, have discussions about tricky patients and seek assistance as we continue to practice and learn the intricate art of diagnosis and prescription in Kampo. If you are not already a member, navigate to the Kampo Study Google Group to request an invitation.

In order to participate in the Monthly Kampo Study Group meetings you must have taken a course from Nigel or be currently enrolled in a course with Nigel. 

Participation in the Monthly Kampo Study Group requires a subscription.
