a life’s journey to becoming an herbalist
posted on Tuesday, November 23rd 2010 3:47 pm

gail faith edwards wrote an article awhile back about the ten-fold path to becoming a community herbalist in response to an article that paul bergner wrote. most of them tie in nicely with quaker testimony so i plan to try to incorporate them into my daily living. here is a brief outline of the 10 things she feels are important to become a community herbalist:

1 – Sense of Place

2 – Pay Attention – Observation. Concentration

3 – Become humus. Humble yourself

4 – Learn to open your wild heart, connect with your inner wild nature

4 – Herbal Ally

5 – Study, study, study

6 – Simplify your life

7 – Cultivate your spirituality

8 – Listen to your clients

9 – Be your own refuge

10 – Practice learning

over then next few weeks,  i hope to write a bit about each item and what i’m doing or plan to start to deepen my learning as a community herbalist.
