The Deep Perspective - Herbal Wisdom in Constitutional Assessment

About The Facial Assessment Course

This is One of Three 3-day weekends constituting a complete course on holistic evaluation skills for herbalists, developed and taught by the foremost people in the field of Herbalism and Holistic Health.


Facial Assessment

This third weekend focuses on facial assessment. We also practice and hone Pulse and Tongue Assessment skills taught in previous classes with fellow students and volunteer clients with Dawn Gates!

"I have known Dawn Gates for over twenty years. Her insights always surprise me because of their uniqueness against the great canopy of herbalism. She does not come from the circle of teaching that I come from – William LeSassier (dec’d), Margi Flint, and myself – but largely from her own experience. As a nurse she had been looking at people inside the medical world, and as an herbalist she is experienced with holistic evaluation and treatment. She brings to us more than 30 years of experience. Thank you, Dawn, for accepting our invitation. I look forward to learning along with our students. When the teachers learn, the students learn even more." - Matthew Wood




We encourage students to study the following to get the most out of this course:

  • The 2017 Tongue and Pulse Evaluation course is a preliminary version of this epic course being offered in 2019. It offers 10 hours of content with brave volunteers who offer close-ups of their tongues and helpful feedback.
  • Shamanic Herbalism is a fascinating topic. Gain a solid understanding from one of our earliest courses recorded for the Institute.


This course is included in The Library!
