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.

His mission is to develop a comprehensive approach that balances the science and spirituality of plant medicine, focusing on using plants to heal and rejuvenate the body, clarify the mind, open the heart, and support the development of the soul. Sajah’s approach honors and acknowledges the chemical, energetic, and spiritual properties of plants for a holistic model that uses the whole herb to heal the whole person.

ABOUT THE PLANT PATH

————————————

The Plant Path provides unique perspectives for the modern practitioner of herbalism that doesn’t just want to “fix what’s broken” in the body, but seeks to serve others with deeper levels of healing and transformation with herbal medicines.

A unique synergy of clinical herbalism, alchemy, medical astrology, and herbal traditions from around the world, The Plant Path focuses on giving you a truly “wholistic” perspective on herbal medicine so you never fall into the trap of allopathic herbalism.
