Free Video Series from the School of Evolutionary Herbalism

School-Banner-newFrom Sajah Popham -“Today we are faced with the greatest challenge the Earth has seen yet. We must make the choice to either continue our destructive ways and lose all that we hold dear, or make the leap to catapult us into a revolution of tending to and taking care of the health and vitality of our planet.

In order to make that shift move in a positive direction for generations to come, it is vitally important for each and every human being to heal. We must heal not only our physical bodies, but the state of our minds, the feelings in our hearts, deep down to the level of our souls.

For every disease and sickness we face as human beings- whether physical or spiritual- there is a medicinal plant that grows on this Earth. Every culture around the world has turned to the wisdom of the botanical kingdom to not only heal, but to learn as well. They came to the profound truth that plants are not only our healers, but our teachers also- and as the human species has gradually become more disconnected from the Earth, the teachings of the plants are becoming more and more relevant every day.

Evolutionary Herbalism is about harnessing that wisdom of the plants into your every day life, as well as integrating the great traditions of the world that knew how to listen to the Earth, the seasons, and the stars.

It’s about recognizing the true power and potency of plants- that they are not just another form of molecular biological medicine- but that they are intelligent beings connected to the forces of life with healing capacities beyond our logical comprehension. That healing reaches far beyond the body, and into the depths of our hearts, minds, and souls. The medicine of the plants is not only healing, but transformational… evolutionary.

Join me for a glimpse into the new paradigm of plant medicine.”

My friend Sajah Popham, founder of the School of Evolutionary Herbalism, has an amazing 3-part video series where he is sharing some incredible teachings on how herbal medicines can be used to facilitate not just physical healing, but spiritual growth and transformation.

He also shares some great essential keys on what you need to know about plants in order to use them holistically and get out of an allopathic mindset.

Just click this link and enter your name and e-mail address on the page to watch the first video in the 3 part series. 

If you use medicinal plants in any way- whether for yourself, your family, your community, or in a clinical context, you will truly appreciate the unique perspective Sajah shares about plants and herbal medicine.

Sacred Body, Sacred Heart, Sacred Soul

As women we are innately connected to the rhythms of the moon cycles, the deep wisdom of the Earth, our native intuition, and our feeling/sensing heart.  But as we all have probably experienced, life sometimes throws us off track, or off kilter, and we find ourselves swimming in the dark.

What practices and tools do you use to shine a light in that place to11216813_10152982595762099_1949758264718748073_n helpyou find your way back to your center of innate wisdom and connection with the world around you?

Radha of Samadhi Ayurveda and myself have joined hearts and souls to bring you a community of ceremony, rituals, practices, meditations, self care recipes and celebrations of being a woman and the tools WE each have used over our years of working as healing practitioners to gently bring ourselves back to center be through connection to our body and nourishment, connection to nature through ceremony, moon honoring rituals, meditation and journey work to connect with our inner peace and sources of wisdom.

No Cook Elderberry Syrup

2014-09-06 13.09.45My favorite elder syrup includes the berries and flowers, plus stimulating, warming spices to improve absorption and circulation.  I prefer not to overcook my elderberries by boiling for extended periods of time, and have found that excessive cooking weakens the potency of theelderberry medicine.  This syrup uses a strong 1:2 infusion of the herbs, which is preserved with honey and alcohol.  This syrup is delicious and strong medicine for the cold and flu season for the whole family!  I have also found elderberry preparations to be an excellent ally for shingles, chicken pox, and other herpes viruses.  Take 1-3 tsp per day all season long, or 1/2 tsp hourly in acute illness. 

1 cup dried elderberries2014-09-06 12.59.38

1/2 cup dried elderflowers

2 tbsp ginger chips

1 tbsp cinnamon chips

16 oz water

4oz vodka or brandy

1 lemon, juice

16 oz honey or sugar


1. Mix all the dried herbs together in a jar.

2. Pour 16 oz boiling water over the herbs, and 4 oz of vodka or brandy

3. cap and let infuse 8 hours or overnight.

4. In a muslin, jelly bag, or cheesecloth strain the herbs from the liquid.  Squeeze gently to get as much fluid from the herbs as possible.

2014-09-06 12.51.15-15. Add the juice of 1 lemon.

6. Measure out exactly how much liquid you have in a glass measuring cup.

7. Add an equal amount of raw honey or sugar to the liquid.  Mix well until sugar dissolves.

8. Bottle and store. It will keep best under refrigeration.  If you wish to keep this in the pantry, you will want to use more alcohol in step 2 (8 oz of 50% vodka) to preserve.
