Medicines From The Edge A Tropical Herbal Convergence

For a third year now, this extraordinary gathering will take place in the magnificent foothills of the Arenal Volcano, on the Caribbean Slope of Costa Rica. It will take place from March the 3th to the 6th and it will bring together herbalists, doctors, grandmothers, academics and all enthusiasts of the ‘earth medicine’ from all over Costa Rica and abroad.

The intention is to create bridges for the medicine knowledge and experiences to flow and reach out to all of those gathered, with the mission to keep educating practitioners, folk herbalists, ethnobotanical intellectuals, clinical herbalists, granny healers, kitchen witches, biologists, curanderos, botanists, permaculturists, conservationists and environmental activists.

It will also be the perfect occasion to share your health experiences and learn about the great sources of healing we have through our food and plant medicines found in our own back yards and even on our pantries.

So, if you have been struggling with any health condition that doesn’t seem to improve, or if you seem to hear the voice of you body telling you to do something different to what you’ve been doing so far, please consider attending this year’s Convergence of Medicines From the Edge, for some of the most amazing healing alternatives you can try safely.

It is the perfect occasion for everyone to explore whole new different ways of addressing health issues, and hopefully connecting with the precise people and powerful plant medicines you need in your life now!

The convergence covers a broad range of practical healing topics, tropical plant identification, medicine making, permaculture and functional tropical foods. All workshops are bilingual, English and Spanish.

The Convergence will take place at Termales del Bosque Spa & Hotel, Ciudad Queseda, Costa Rica, and the tuition fee starts at US$350 with great discounts for local, senior, students and other type of attendees. Tuition also includes all workshops, meals and hot springs. Lodging options are also available at the hotel or on their plush on site camping (must provide your own tent and bedding).
