Celtic Herbal Medicine Lammas Course

Dates for 2020  Weds 5th to Sunday 16th August includes the Arran Highland Games.

celtic-logoDue to the popularity of our annual Celtic Medicine Intensive we added another course for the summer of 2020. In the same way that we celebrate the Summer Solstice in June we will be celebrating the ancient festival of Lammas in August. As this course is an experiential one the curriculum and the teachers remain the same as the June Intensive; which has proved so popular with participants returning each year to experience the warm educational environment of a group experience that can be truly life changing. We would ask participants who have joined us before to preferably book on to this new Lammas course as we would like to prioritise the June Intensive for first time participants. (Please contact us if you have been before and the June date is the only one that works, and we can discuss your attendance as we have limited places left for returning participants on the June course.)

We have a maximum of 12 places so advance booking is essential. For an application form please use my personal e-mail which is keith at (please help us avoid spam by the supplying the @ yourself) and we are also on Facebook at Drimlabarra Herb Farm and as Keith Robertson.

On site cabins and camping  and vegan organic meals are available at an additional cost.
