We have Sajah Popham back on the podcast to talk to us about herbal alchemy & spagyrics! Sajah is author of Evolutionary Herbalism and the founder of the School of Evolutionary Herbalism, where he trains herbalists in a holistic system of plant medicine that encompasses clinical western herbalism, medical astrology, Ayurveda, and spagyric alchemy. 

In this episode, we go into what Alchemy is... Sajah breaks down the word, the historical lineage and how it's rooted in the transformational process of nature. 

He tells us how the alchemical tradition really looks at the wholeness of plants, people and the cosmos developing an herbal pharmacy focusing on this wholeness of the body, mind, spirit and soul. Then we go into spagyrics... what they are, how did Sajah first come to study them, and he breaks down the process and art of making spagyrics plus the three philosophical principles that are really the foundation of this tradition. 

We go into how to start helping people with herbal alchemy and spagyrics - we cover the top tools in Sajah’s toolbox to assess people and their herbal needs to match with the most effective remedy and then Sajah walks us through a couple of case studies that are fascinating through the alchemical lens including the best remedies, how he came to them, and the astrological connections. 

There's so much more in this interview as we explore the various ways all of us can reconnect back with our own wholeness and our inner healers.

ABOUT ALCHEMICAL HERBALISM: Like Ayurveda or Chinese Medicine, the Western Alchemical tradition is a complete system of medicine that works with plants to cure diseases of the body, spirit and soul.

While not too many people know much about Alchemy these days, one of the top experts on the subject is my friend Sajah Popham, who’s been practicing both herbal alchemy and clinical herbalism for over 10 years. 

And he’s distilled everything he knows about this powerful practice in his online course, Alchemical Herbalism, which is open for enrollment Wed Oct 27!
