Herbs for Survival, Herbs for Life

June Meeting Features Special Forces Medic


Sam Coffman is founder and lead instructor of The Human Path (http://www.thehumanpath.com) , which is an ecology-based school in the San Antonio area that teaches herbology, wilderness medicine, wilderness living and survival skills and much more.
     Sam has many years' military experience as a U.S. Special Forces Medic in the Army. He also studied botany and bioregional medicine both privately and at several outdoor schools in Colorado. He taught herbology and wildcrafting for the Boulder School of Natural Medicine and spent several years testing his own primitive living skills throughout regions of the Rocky Mountains, in solitary survival excursions with no equipment beyond a knife. He currently lives in the San Antonio region, where he teaches herbology and local medicinal plant use.
     At his talk in June for the San Antonio Herb Society, Sam Coffman will be introducing several native plants to the San Antonio region and discussing their enthobotanical and modern medicinal uses.  He will also touch briefly on the topics of energetics of western herbs, working primarily with the plants growing in our own bioregion, and forest gardening.
