Integrative Approaches to Mental Health | Residential Retreat

  • Woolman Center Woolman Lane Nevada City, CA 95959 (map)

With Ingrid Bauer, MD and Benjamin Zappin, L.Ac.

This residential retreat will provide participants tools to optimize therapeutic outcomes and alleviate suffering using herbal medicine for mental health. Psychiatrists, primary care physicians, nurse practitioners, licensed acupuncturists, psychotherapists, and clinical herbalists are invited to join us for an interdisciplinary, experiential weekend where we will discuss traditional and evidence-based applications of botanicals for many mental health conditions. We will also review the existing evidence for herb-drub interactions, and identify benefits of herbal therapies for reducing side-effects of psychiatric and other medications.

In addition to lectures, we will offer 6 healthy meals* (vegan and GF available), simple lodging*, and free time for hiking, meditating, and (hopefully) a dip in the nearby Yuba River.

12 CEUs pending for California Licensed Acupuncturists.
