What are the energetics of herbs? In this class we will discuss the ways people have sought to answer that question, as we experience the herbs as beings that take part in the complete energetic dynamics of the natural world. We will give time to Ancient Greek, Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine models of energetics, the natures and flavors of herbs, as well as intersections with Plant Spirit communication.
We will look at the herbs in more subtle ways beyond their herbal actions and symptom pictures. Ultimately, we will investigate how the energetics of herbs act as a foundation for some of the holistic and vitalist concepts involved with matching people to the plant medicines that are right for them as unique individuals. We will look at how herbal energetics connects to formula construction and to constitutional medicine.
