This CD set is the March session of William’s last teaching series, organized by Claudia Keel and hosted by Hollis Melton in New York City. See the notes below for topics discussed. The seminar was held in New York in 2002, just a year before William’s death. He’s recorded with a small group of students, the third meeting in a series of six, sharing diagnostic techniques, theory and specific herb use.

The original recordings are missing about two hours due to a taping glitch, so this series comes in at 10 hrs 2 min, slightly shorter than our other sets.

Part One and Part Two are CD sets, each in an elegant “bookshelf” case, with the notes for each CD, so material is more easily located.  There are details of William’s manhole cover paintings on the case, and a photo from the year of the seminar.
