Human beings have been using herbs since antiquity, as food and as medicine. This is a spontaneous process and is related to the survival instinct. Humans first learned to eat (hence to use herbs) and then to create civilizations.
The conceited modern way of thinking, especially in urban settlements, has distanced man from nature and from his deeper instincts, and has destroyed the communication between man and Nature. Now, man believes that the distance between him and Nature is an unbridgeable gap.
However, this is not true. Each of us is part of Nature. We can all restore the communication with Nature, if only we choose to do so.
This lesson aims to restore modern man’s faith in the power of nature; and to awaken our memories that pertain to the use of herbs. It is not a lesson that teaches philologically the healing properties of certain herbs. It is a path that is traced on out instincts about herbs. It revives these memories, leading us to a better understanding of the natural world. Thus, the student realizes that Nature is an integrated entity, and that he himself is an inseparable part of this Whole. In this way, herbs are transformed into a tool of knowledge-memory. And healing is a natural consequence of self-knowledge.
We invite all those who seek a channel of communication with Nature, to attend this class.
Medical herbalism consists of two independent units: Chinese Herbal Medicine and Greek Herbs.
Chinese herbal medicine has retained intact its connection with the past. This is the reason why today, internationally, it holds prominent position. Thus, we deepen our knowledge of Chinese herbalism, because it retains the paths of memory that will help us to awaken our knowledge of ancient Greek wisdom.
