So many of us set off as young adults hoping to change the world. We choose a path, like modern medicine and then life begins offering up course-correcting moments to jog us onto the path of herbal medicine, for the heart and soul. Today, we’re talking with Sajah Popham, author of Evolutionary Medicine and co-founder of the School of Evolutionary Herbalism.
Topics we mentioned:
- Maia Toll’s books
- Holistic Medicine
- Setting Goals
- Fire vs Water Approach to Goals
- Changes to The Practical Herbalist
Sue’s working on a new venture in 2020. Check out The Integrated Herbalist to see what Sue’s up to today!
Award winning writer Maia Toll has been many things— a horseback riding teacher, a clinical herbalist, and (oddly) a university professor— but by far her favorite title is author. Her best-selling Wild Wisdom series (The Illustrated Herbiary, The Illustrated Bestiary & The Illustrated Crystallary) offers a glimpse into the knowings of the natural world and the wilds within ourselves. Maia contemplated these insights during her yearlong apprenticeship to a traditional healer in Ireland. Though apprenticeship sounds terribly romantic, it was most often lonely, leaving Maia plenty of time to listen to the ravens, roses, and rocks. She quickly learned that the world was a whole lot bigger than her human-centric upbringing had led her to believe.
When not obsessively reading books and “talking” to trees, stones, and her two dogs, Maia drinks copious amounts of tea and helps run Herbiary, a multi-city natural wellness and sacred living store she owns with her partner Andrew. She teaches and blogs to an international following at maiatoll.com where she constantly reminds people that using critical thinking skills and talking to flowers are not mutually exclusive activities.
