In this module we will explore some essentials in natural healing such as; seeing the body as an ecosystem, the role of Vital Energy or Qi and the true potential of sound health. This module introduces a detailed look at the elements of earth, water, fire, air, and ether, as well as how we're literally made up of a balance of them all. An herbalist understands that our personality traits, interests, emotions and so on are all related to the flavours we eat, the seasonal time of year, where we reside, our ancestral constitution, and more. There are many ways to learn about plants just through their flavour and in order to practice herbalism successfully it’s best one understand what the herbalist means when speaking of damp / dry conditions, or heat / cold imbalances. It’s equally important that we consider how all of creation is comprised of energy and intelligence and what many healers mean when speaking about our potential for a higher human consciousness. In order to explore a practical model for working with herbal energetics we utilize the ancient Indian science of Ayurveda combined with a contemporary view of a Medicine Wheel. We'll continue to delve deeper into Holistic Anatomy and Herbal Actions and Properties and of course there are many more amazing plant ally videos including; the bountiful Red Raspberry, the powerful Hawthorn, and the truly amazing Symphytum Officinale, aka: Comfrey. We also provide more precious Interviews with Elders and extensive Audio content for your greater learning.
