Weaving together herbal and medical traditions from around the world into a singular cohesive model, this groundbreaking book guides herbal practitioners to a comprehensive understanding of the practice and philosophy of healing with herbs.
Written by a rising star in the field, Evolutionary Herbalism presents a wide-angled and innovative approach to herbalism that considers both the plant and the human in a holistic context. Sajah Popham teaches a method of heart-centered contemplation that allows practitioners to access and honor the psychological, emotional, physiological, and spiritual qualities of a plant, resulting in a transformative level of healing. Organized in five parts that lead the reader from the microcosmic to the universal, this work encompasses Ayurveda, alchemy, Chinese medicine, astrology, and clinical herbalism to address physical and spiritual levels of well-being. For both the student herbalist and the experienced practitioner, as well as a readers interested more generally in ecology and spirituality, Popham's teachings guide readers to a more intimate, synergistic, and intuitive relationship with the plant kingdom.
