    Alchemy and Herbalism Part II- As Above, So Below: The Macrocosm and Microcosm in People and Plants

    Alchemy and Herbalism Part II- As Above, So Below: The Macrocosm and Microcosm in People and Plants

    This week in Part II of the Alchemy and Herbalism blog series, I’m going to lay out for you what I see as the philosophical foundation of alchemy: the macrocosm and the microcosm. 
    I’ll be covering an overview of the alchemical worldview and it profoundly shifts your perspective on people, plants, and your practice of herbalism.
    We’re hitting it at a high level this week, and next week I’ll lay out how this philosophical foundation is practically applied in herbal alchemy, or spagyrics.

    Alchemy and Herbalism Part I - The Science and Spirituality of Herbalism

    Alchemy and Herbalism Part I - The Science and Spirituality of Herbalism

    Welcome to the first part of a four-part series discussing alchemy and herbalism. The tradition of alchemy is a tradition dear to my heart. I'm excited to share some of these teachings with you, because the alchemical tradition was the missing piece of the puzzle on my quest for a holistic system of herbal medicine. One of the main ways that it sparked something deep within me is the way that alchemy brings together science and spirituality. That's what this post covers.

    Spagyrics: Ancient Medicine for the Modern World

    Spagyrics: Ancient Medicine for the Modern World

    There's something that I've been thinking a lot about lately. I've been looking at the state of the world and everything that's been going on politically and culturally. With the fires that we've been having out here on the West Coast, it feels like things are heating up—literally—on planet earth right now. I've been thinking about human beings’ relationship to nature, our relationship to the earth, and the healing that is required of all of us right now, and I think the practice of herbal alchemy or spagyrics has great power and potency to bring healing to people.

    The Client Intake and 5 Health Determinants

    The Client Intake and 5 Health Determinants

    Root determinants are the big-picture, general things that we do each and every day that determine our relative state of health or lack of health. These are important things to know when working with clients, but sometimes they're overlooked by practitioners because they're considered basic and rudimentary and because there are so many other things to cover in a client intake. 
    So how do you do an intake in a way that makes sense . . . and so that you're not sitting there with a person all day long trying to get all the information that you need? How much time is generally recommended for a proper intake that accounts for the five root determinants of health? That’s what we cover this week.
