Weaving together herbal and medical traditions from around the world into a singular cohesive model, this groudbreaking book guides herbal practitioners to a comprehensive understanding of the practice and philosophy of healing with herbs.
Written by one of the most exciting up-and-coming teachers in the field, this book presents a wide-angled and innovative approach to herbalism that truly considers both the plant and the human in a holistic context. Sajah Popham teaches a method of heart-centered contemplation—in which we relate to the plant with our hearts, rather than our heads—that allows practioners to access and honor the psychological, emotional, and spiritual qualities of a plant in conjunction with its physiological properties, resulting in a transformative level of healing.
Organized in five parts that lead the reader from the microcosm to the universal, this work—grand in scope and profound in its understanding—encompasses Ayurveda, alchemy, Chinese medicine, astrology, and clinical herbalism to address physical as well as spiritual levels of well-being. Aimed at both the student herbalist and the experienced practitioner, as well as a readers interested more generally in ecology and spirituality, Popham's teachings, both practical and philosophical in nature, guide readers to a more intimate, synergistic, and intuitive relationship with the plant kingdom and the healing medicine that is found there.
