What is an herbalist?


“The seers, though the yoga of perception, let plants speak to them. And the plants disclosed many secrets – many of which are far more subtle than a chemical analysis could uncover…To become an herbalist then, is to become a seer. This means being sensitive to the being of the herbs, to commune in receptive awareness with the plant-light of the universe. It is to learn to listen when the plant speaks, to speak to the plant as to another human being, and to look upon it as one’s teacher.”
