Registration Open for the

ALCHEMICAL HERBALISM

2018 LIVE WORKSHOP

In this 4-day live workshop, you will get to experience the Evolutionary Herbalism teachings on an experiential and tactile level, gathering essential skills to integrate and implement this paradigm of herbal practice out in the world in a real way.

This live event will integrate the teachings from the Alchemical Herbalism online program and give you the big picture concepts and detailed techniques and strategies to work with plants within a transformational and holistic context.

THE TRANSFORMATIONAL EXPERIENCE

of Alchemical Herbalism

Though we offer as much as we can through our online programs, there are things that just cannot be experienced through the computer. You have to sit in the forest and find out for yourself what it truly means to be forever changed by the plants. If you truly want to know what Alchemy is, you have to feel the transformational process of calcination while grinding plant ashes in a mortar & pestle with your own hands.

And that's exactly what the Alchemical Herbalism workshop is all about - giving you the direct experience to truly assimilate and integrate the ancient practices of Alchemy. In this special experiential workshop, you'll access the next level of teachings that'll transform your life & practice of plant medicine.

You'll have an opportunity to deepen your connection with plants through herb walks where we'll show you how to identify the wild plants around us & will teach you about their medicinal properties. Through spending focused time in nature, you'll have the opportunity to experience plant communication by practicing direct perception during our plant sits.

We'll also spend time in the Spagyrics lab where you'll get to see first-hand the processes of preparing Alchemical herbal medicines. This is a LOT of fun and it's always where the light bulbs turn on for all the students who have been trying to grasp the concepts & philosophy of Alchemy, but it didn't gel until they experienced the practical side of plant Alchemy in this workshop.

You'll have opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of medical astrology during our student case studies & roundtable sessions with Sajah. He'll go over people's charts & demonstrate how this essential information shown in the birth chart can be used to assess health conditions within a specific person. We'll also spend time showing the correspondences in between the Tarot, Qabalah and the teachings of Alchemy and how plants correspond to all of those layers of the esoteric arts.

Those are only a few of the activities we'll be doing during the workshop. The format is somewhat open because we like to have room to tailor the curriculum to the specific interests & needs of each student. If there are things you want to dive deeper into around this subject of esoteric herbalism, medical astrology & Alchemy, this is the perfect opportunity to pick Sajah's brain. This is where you can get the direct download on the fascinating world of Alchemical Herbalism and how you can bring it home to implement into your own life.

This course was extraordinary. I came into the program with many years of herbal studies behind me and have found my practice greatly enriched by the course. There is a depth and a connectedness to the course material which I have not found in other programs. Sajah’s teachings have transformed the way I practice herbalism, and profoundly enhanced my connection with the plants."

Jacquie Day - Victoria, British Colombia, Canada


"Honestly, this school has been epic. These teachings have been a huge missing link for me in both herbalism and my spiritual life. It’s really deepened what I thought was possible with the medicines offered by the plant kingdom.

Sajah extends an energy of humble wisdom, the learning environment he created felt welcoming and grounded. I found much of the course material easy to grasp, and more significantly, to easy to integrate. I am exceedingly grateful for my experience in the program. I continue to practice and deepen my understanding of the teachings today.

-Jacqueline Bird - Kingston, Washington

“My life has changed ten-fold. I have experienced a complete paradigm shift. Before this class, my heart was closed off to the magical world of the forest - the spirits. Now, I embrace it fully. I can’t thank you enough Sajah & Whitney.” 

-Julia Bentley - Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

"This program has opened doors of wonder and possibility for the magic of plant medicine and healing in a very practical way. I received healing on very deep levels through the sacred container you created for the plants to move through.” 

-Heather Kirkendall - Port Townsend, Washington

“Sajah’s passion, enthusiasm, and sense of curiosity and awe when teaching about herbalism is inspiring and motivational!  This was a very important aspect of the program that is undeniable and so very necessary when transmitting information to another.” 

-Mary Ann Leary  - Jacksonville, Oregon

“These teachings have offered me the tools and information to approach healing on seen and unseen levels for plants, people, and the earth in general. They have provided a level of depth I had not yet arrived at, and given support to many intuitions and heart oriented feelings I’ve experienced.”

-Mattie Morton - Nevada City, California
