Harness the Full Medicinal Power of Plants with

ALCHEMY + HERBALISM

TO HEAL THE BODY AND EVOLVE THE SOUL

Most herbalists want to be "holistic."

But what does that really mean?

It means that you assess the whole person: body, mind, & soul.

That you know the whole plant: its chemistry, energetics, & spirit.

And most importantly...

That you have an integrated system of herbalism
that unites the science and spirituality of plant medicine.

True holistic herbalism understands that plants can heal the body and facilitate the evolution of consciousness, supporting our soul's journey of becoming the best versions of ourselves.

But something's missing in modern herbalism

that limits our ability to heal the whole person...


It's easy to get too focused on symptoms and
overlook the deeper levels of healing people need.

We use Turmeric to treat inflammation,
or Willow bark for a headache,
but can easily fail to notice
the root cause of these superficial symptoms.

It's common to just see what plants are "good for"
and disregard their holistic essence.

We use one kind of remedy to heal the body—
like teas, tinctures and powders—
and different ones for the emotions, mind or spirit,
like flower essences and homeopathics...

But what if you had a single form of herbal medicine
that equally addressed the whole person by
healing with the whole plant?

What if you had an integrated system of plant medicine that equally addressed the body, spirit and soul of people and plants?


Alchemy Reunites the Science and Spirituality of Herbalism

The tradition of alchemy harnesses the power of the transformational cycles of Nature.

We take those cycles and transform natural substances into a medicine.

And in turn, when we take them into our bodies, those medicines transform us.

Alchemy understands that to heal is to evolve, and to evolve is to heal. 

That true healing is not just a lack of symptoms...
but a transformational process that touches the core of who we are.
Turning our trauma into our medicine.

This is the level of healing desperately needed at this time...

Through integrating alchemy and herbalism, you can work with plants to provide the deepest levels of healing for yourself, your family, community and clinic.

Using the whole plant — chemically, energetically, and spiritually — to heal the whole person...

Rejuvenating the body, clarifying the mind, strengthening the heart, and healing trauma.

The School of Evolutionary Herbalism presents

ALCHEMICAL HERBALISM

THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE ONLINE EDUCATION ON HERBALISM & MEDICAL ALCHEMY

Some programs teach alchemy. Some teach herbal medicine. None combine them like this program.

Alchemical Herbalism takes the principles of alchemy and shows exactly how they fit into the core of holistic medicine, giving you the ability to transform lives with plants.

This holistic system unites herbal traditions into a cohesive model that integrates the physical & spiritual qualities of people & plants.

You’ll combine theory and practice, the why and the how of holistic herbalism so you can heal the whole person using the whole plant. 

This is not your run-of-the-mill herbal program. The synergy of alchemy, spagyrics, medical astrology, Ayurveda, and clinical herbalism gives you entirely new perspectives and skills that revolutionize your practice of plant medicine.


"Every lecture is like a revelation to me and an answer to my need for a spiritual framework to herbalism that would interweave things together and provide deeper levels of connection and understanding."

Eleni Christoforatou - Corfu, Greece


YOU'LL LEARN HOW TO:

  • DEVELOP NATURAL LANGUAGE

    Deepen your connection with plants through an ancient mode of perception used by herbalists across the world. Rather than memorizing plant properties, you learn about the plants from the plants themselves.

  • INTEGRATE HERBAL TRADITIONS

    See the connections between the herbal traditions of the world — such as Western herbalism, alchemy, astrology and Ayurveda — and weave them together into a comprehensive system of plant medicine.

  • KNOW PLANTS WITH PRECISION

    Get beyond memorizing what herbs are “good for” and learn their essential patterns that influence people physically, energetically and spiritually. From tastes, energetics, and actions, to organ affinities, and esoteric properties, you’ll learn your plants with precision so you can target remedies beyond “use this herb for that symptom” herbalism.

  • KNOW PEOPLE WITH PRECISION

    Understand the connections between the body, mind, and soul. Get beyond just treating symptoms and get to the root causes of disease. From constitutional systems, anatomy, physiology and pathology, to psychology and stages of spiritual development, you’ll know how to treat the whole person with precision.

  • UNITE HERBAL SCIENCE & SPIRIT

    From chemistry and physiological actions, to subtle energetics and spiritual properties, you’ll see the deeper connections between clinical Western herbalism, Ayurveda, medical astrology, and alchemy for a truly holistic model. Relate people and plants to the wholeness of Nature by bringing together the science and spirit of herbalism.

  • CRAFT HOLISTIC MEDICINES

    Step-by-step examples of how to create truly holistic spagyric herbal extracts that concentrate the chemical, energetic and spiritual properties of plants that heal the body, mind, and soul of the people you serve. Learn to practice the art and science of traditional herbal alchemy.

GET A TOUR INSIDE ALCHEMICAL HERBALISM

YOUR JOURNEY THROUGH ALCHEMICAL HERBALISM

The seven stages of alchemical herbalism represent the practical application of what you learn throughout the course on a journey of learning your remedies holistically, transforming them into powerful medicines, and healing yourself and others with them.

1

DISCOVER YOUR INNER FOREST

What are the plants that you deeply resonate with and want to understand on a deeper level? The ones that "stand up in the forest and call your name"? The first step is discovering the remedies of your "inner forest" that you'll take through the alchemical process when you make medicine with it. Further along in the course, this plant will then guide you through the same alchemical process of transformation as it heals your body, spirit, and soul, and reclaims parts of your true nature. 

2

BUILD EXPERIENTIAL KNOWLEDGE

Before looking it up in a book, build a your direct experience with the plant by sitting with it, learning directly from it through your heart, and developing your own relationship to it. You'll cultivate a deep and profound connection to your plant — far beyond what you could learn from a book alone — as you come to understand that plant's own unique language, teachings, and medicine. Your understanding of herbal medicine will be founded upon how people have learned it for millennia... from the plants themselves.

3

UNDERSTAND HERBS HOLISTICALLY

Drawing upon herbal traditions from around the world, come to know your plant holistically and how it affects the whole person through its physical actions, constitutional and organ affinities, energetics, psychological and emotional properties, and spiritual virtues. Your heart based understanding will be balanced with intellectual, traditional knowledge that goes beyond just what it's "good for" so you can use it effectively and holistically.

4

UNLOCK THE ESOTERIC WISDOM IN PLANTS

Integrating your experience and knowledge of the plant, you'll be able to decipher your plants unique embodiment of the archetypal forces of Nature through it's elemental and planetary rulers. You'll be able to see the essence of the plant through the relationship between its physical, energetic, and spiritual properties, as well as how those same forces allow you to understand human beings holistically. This is the key to preparing your plant alchemically and administering it transformationally. 

5

MAKE AN ALCHEMICAL MEDICINE

With knowledge of the elemental and planetary ruler, you now can harvest and prepare the plant according to the principles of alchemy. You'll take the plant step-by-step through the transformational process of spagyrics to craft a medicine that concentrates its chemical, energetic and spiritual properties you've come to understand through the previous stages. This advanced form of medicine making gives you the ability to heal the whole person, because the medicine contains the whole plant. 

6

TRANSFORM YOURSELF

Complete the second half of the alchemical process as the plant now guides you through the same transformational process you took it through in the spagyric process. As you take your spagyric preparations, you'll receive a deep level of healing and integration of your plant's unique medicinal virtues as it becomes a part of who you are. As you heal the various parts of yourself you'll come to a deeper understanding of the archetypes of Nature, and grow in your skills as an herbalist. 

7

SERVE OTHERS

Everything comes full circle as plant by plant, spagyric by spagyric, healing by healing, you enter deeper levels of understanding of the healing power of alchemically prepared plants and step into the role of serving your community as an alchemical herbalist, sharing the deep levels of transformational healing you've received through this process.

This is the path of the Alchemical Herbalist,
where you learn your plants intuitively and rationally,
through study and experience,
with your heart and your mind.

Where you're competent in the medicine you carry
because you know it inside and out,
you've experienced the transformation for yourself,
and confident to share that transformation with others.


These teachings truly are holistic.
In addition to providing loads of scientific information,
this course offers insights into the correspondences among herbal traditions; the relationships among people, plants and universal archetypes; and how they all play a vital role in achieving balance and health. 

I also loved the format, which offers both video and print versions of the lessons, as well as easy access to the teacher when you have questions or comments."

HERE'S WHAT OUR
STUDENTS HAVE TO SAY:

This program has changed my life. After every lecture I feel more like myself. It's like a connection to something bigger. Since the moment I started all kinds of things have happened in my life. It awakened me and I'll be forever grateful to you and your school. You guys have been an inspiration to me!"

- Susana 

"This course was incredibly transformative. Working with the plants was inspiring and healing, but it was Sajah's particular way of seeing the world and presenting the information that made this school truly powerful. I came away from it with a new experience of myself and a totally different understanding of the world around me."

Mike Goldstein – Seattle, Washington

"This program has tremendously enhanced my competence and confidence in my ability to help people with plant medicine.

Before this program, I was thinking that I would never know enough and I was keeping my interest in herbalism private. But through this course, a door to the heart of nature opened for me to share healing with others - to be a bridge between the herbs and the people.

I have the tools and confidence now that I have support from the School of Evolutionary Herbalism and material to consult for a lifetime."

-Lisa Jeannin - Tranås, Sweden

“Sajah’s passion, enthusiasm, and sense of curiosity and awe when teaching about herbalism is inspiring and motivational!  This was a very important aspect of the program that is undeniable and so very necessary when transmitting information to another.” 

-Mary-Ann Leary – Jacksonville, Oregon

“My life has changed ten-fold. I have experienced a complete paradigm shift. Before this class, my heart was closed off to the magical world of the forest. Now, I embrace it fully. I can’t thank you enough Sajah & Whitney.” 

-Julia Bentley – Lake Atitlan, Guatemala

“This school has opened my eyes and heart to a whole new way of seeing and perceiving the world, synthesizing so much information I have studied over the years into a cohesive and practical system.

It's given me a whole new skill-set and practical application for my knowledge and passions. A new lens to approach healing that encompasses both my clinical herbalism background, along with my spiritual longing.”

- Anja Robinson, founder of Mana Medicinals
Williams, Oregon

"Before this course I had no idea about the interconnections between astrology and herbalism. Now I see that being an herbalist with astrological knowledge really takes my relationships with plants and people to the next level. I don't think I would have been able to learn this information anywhere else."

-Kailani Gorman – Santa Fe, New Mexico

“Sajah's unique approach to teaching marries the science and spirit of herbalism in a way that is both very grounded as well as being full of heart and inspiration. His sincerity as a healer and his real desire to empower and uplift his students made this program a really wonderful journey.”

Sonja Myllymaki – Edmonton, Alberta, Canada

I can truly say that the School of Evolutionary Herbalism was the rooted foundation of my herbal practice. Sajah’s invitation to go into nature and into the heart centered space to cultivate a relationship with nature itself is what truly transformed me and then assisted me in cultivating a space for my practice. Through the Alchemical Herbalism program I now am a practicing astrologer and am now purchasing equipment to begin spagyric operations. Time and time again I come back to listen to the lectures in this course to not only brush up on knowledge, but also to reflect on how far my practice has come and where it will continue to go as it grows.

-Cameron Allen, herbalist & medical astrologer
 Memphis, Tennessee

"What Sajah offers is beautiful and truly unique. He's explored the wisdom and knowledge of the Ancients and found a voice in which to convey these truths to our Western trained minds. The information he presents is relatable and tangible.

Sajah's classroom is unlike any I have ever experienced and encourage people from all walks of life to pursue studying with him; who knows, it may just open up your heart and mind to a world of possibility you never knew was within you!"

-Jamuna Galay – Vancouver, B.C. Canada

“Sajah is a great speaker, presenter & teacher. He does a really great job of taking the complex subject of alchemy & spagyrics and simplifying it by the language he uses and the examples he gives.”

-Ryan O-Conner Wolik

"Sajah is clear, highly knowledgeable and passionate — one of those teachers you never tire of hearing."

-Shonagh Home – Redmond, Washington

“This program lays the groundwork for a perspective that has the potential to change the way humans live on the Earth.

It has provided deep insight into approaches of healing, herbalism, and the cosmologies behind them, which can be applied to plant medicine in a way that heals and transforms.

These teachings have offered me the tools and information to approach healing with people and plants at a level of depth I had not yet arrived at.”

- Mattie Morton, founder of Juniperous Clothing
Bozeman, Montana

"Honestly, this school has been epic. These teachings have been a huge missing link for me in both herbalism and my spiritual life. It’s really deepened what I thought was possible with the medicines offered by the plant kingdom.

Sajah extends an energy of humble wisdom, the learning environment he created felt welcoming and grounded. I found much of the course material easy to grasp, and more significantly, easy to integrate. I am exceedingly grateful for my experience in the program. I continue to practice and deepen my understanding of the teachings today.”

-Jacquie Day – Victoria, B.C. Canada

"Your lectures are amazing! I have been around for a while and gathered a lot of information, but now here YOU are, jumping out of the computer screen, young and filled with immense energy - practically sitting on the couch with me!

You have gathered all my favorites - from Paracelsus to Steiner - all different cultures and beliefs, and deliver it in this most amazing package in a way I was never able to put all the pieces together. I get it after listening to you! It’s remarkable. I want to express my gratitude and love to you for making your knowledge so easily accessible for us."

-Barbara Bradley – Switzerland

Through this course I have gained a confidence that I didn’t have before, even after attending several different herb schools.

I gained a new spiritual perspective connecting with plants I already knew in a much more deeper and profound way. I feel like this was the class I needed to tie everything I learned all together.

Before Alchemical Herbalism I was shy to call myself an herbalist, but now I realize what it truly means because I feel it."

-Colleen Bones, founder of Witch in the Woods Modern Botanicals
 Humboldt County, California

You have a choice. You can keep practicing herbalism as you are, trying to fit all the pieces together, possibly feeling like there’s a deeper level of healing you could be reaching with the plants and people you work with.

Or, you can invest in yourself and grow into your life’s work by joining this program.

Not only will you learn new ways to practice herbalism which will expand what you can offer to your community - you’ll also go through a transformational process yourself throughout this course. After people go through this program, they’ve changed… and they want to share that transformation with others.

It’s time to heed the call, to take the next big step on your plant path and build the confidence to help others as an herbal healer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the completion of this course provide certification?

Yes! When you finish the entire course, you will receive a personalized Certificate of Completion showing the hours of education you’ve accomplished in the Alchemical Herbalism program. 

Whenever you’re done watching a video lesson and you’ve downloaded the notes that go along with that lesson, that lesson will automatically be checked off as complete. This makes it easy for you to move through the course so you can pick up wherever you left off and know how far you have to go till you finish the program. This also enables us to ensure you’ve completed the course material so that we can award you with a Certificate upon completion of the program.

This certification only shows that you’ve completed the course – it wouldn’t make you “licensed” or “officially approved” to practice herbalism, because such certification doesn’t exist in the US at this time.

How is Alchemical Herbalism different from the Vitalist Herbal Practitioner Program?

The Alchemical Herbalism program is more focused on the spiritual aspects and philosophy of alchemy and spagyrics, giving you an understanding of the astrological forces that work through people, plants, and spagyric medicine. It is an overall holistic herbal philosophy that bridges the science and spirituality of plant medicine, with an emphasis on deciphering the pattern of the elements, planets, and principles within people and plants, along with integrating traditions like Ayurveda, Western herbalism, alchemy, Astrology, and natural philosophy.

The Vitalist Herbal Practitioner Program is more clinically focused, with an emphasis on the body systems through a constitutional approach and focuses on using plants therapeutically for people, along with formulation and assessment strategies. 

Originally, Alchemical Herbalism was considered the “Year 1” Evolutionary Herbalism program and the Vitalist course was “Year 2,” as it was designed to take the teachings you learn in Alchemical Herbalism to a deeper level of specificity for a clinical herbal practice. That being said, they are both totally stand-alone programs and you can certainly do one without the other.

So they are ultimately 2 quite distinct programs. The Vitalist program does cover some simple medical astrology through the organ systems, but Alchemical Herbalism goes into much more depth on medical astrology in herbal practice. Alchemical Herbalism briefly covers holistic evaluation/diagnostics, but Vitalism goes much deeper on this subject.

I'm already enrolled in an Evolutionary Herbalism program. Should I still consider this course?

Absolutely. All of the programs we offer are distinct unto themselves. That being said, Alchemical Herbalism does include a few other smaller programs we offer, including Elemental Herbalism, Botanical Constellations, and Astro-Herbalism. If you are currently enrolled in one of these programs and would like to upgrade your account to include Alchemical Herbalism at a discounted student rate, contact us directly at [email protected] or hit the chat link on this page to discuss upgrade options.

How much time does it take to complete this course?

Because you have a lifetime access to this program, you can move as fast or slow as you like. We’ve designed it this way because we know how busy life is and want you to be able to study at your own pace. If you were to watch 2 videos per week you will get through the entire program in approximately a year.

When you register, all the classes are taught through videos lessons, and come with the option to download audio MP3s and PDFs for further reference as you move through the content.

How much does the program cost? Do you have payment plan options?

We offer three different payment plan options which can be paid via credit/debit card.

Our payment plans are as follows:

– Single payment of $1,997 (Save $295 — Best deal)
– 6 monthly payments of $347 (Save $85)
– 12 monthly payments of $191

What's your refund policy?

We offer a 30-day money-back guarantee, no strings attached! That will give you the option to go over the materials and see if the program is a good fit for you. If you would like to cancel your enrollment within the first 30 days to get a refund on your tuition, you will need to contact us via email or phone prior to the expiration of the refund window. No refunds can be given 30 days after the date of your enrollment. 

Do you take interns? Can I work-trade for the program?

We currently do not take work traders or interns at this time, as we don’t have the infrastructure to manage and oversee helpers at this time.

If you are needing financial assistance, you can apply for our scholarship program here.

If I don’t have the proper set-up at home to make spagyrics, will this course still be applicable for me?

Yes! This program is not just about making spagyric medicine – this is only one module of the entire program. Much of what is taught is not just about making the medicine itself, but about how to therapeutically use herbs through understanding the underlying energetic and astrological principles behind plants and people.

If you are not into making the medicines yourself — but you want to start practicing someday soon; we do have a spagyric product line called Organic Unity where we make our own spagyric extracts that many practitioners and students order wholesale from us. If you are interested in seeing a catalog, please email us at [email protected]

I'm totally new to herbalism. Will this be over my head?

This is actually our best program for beginners. Even if you don’t know anything about herbs and you consider yourself a beginner, this program lays a solid foundation that gives you the skills & tools needed to use herbs holistically. We’ve had students with zero background in herbalism who excelled in this program. Sajah breaks everything down in incredibly simple yet profound ways that are easy to grasp to get your foundation solid to grow from.

I'm a pretty advanced herbalist. Is this going to be too basic for me?

This program was designed to give advanced practitioners new strategies and perspectives that will accelerate your herbal practice to a more refined and potent level. The integration of alchemy, Ayurveda, medical astrology, and clinical Western herbalism is a unique synergy that makes this program highly distinct from other herbal programs out there that is guaranteed to give you new perspectives, insights, and practices in your work with plants. We’ve had surgeons, naturopathic doctors, acupuncturists, and many holistic practitioners go through this program and all were taken to a new level of precision and potency in their practice.

Are there any live workshops that go with this program?

This is a 100% online distance learning course and all of the program lessons are in video format, along with audio downloads of the lectures and downloadable notes. The lessons are filmed from our live classes, so it feels like you’re in an intimate workshop setting with Sajah and a community of students.

Though in the past we have offered live workshops on Alchemical Herbalism, we don’t currently have any live workshops scheduled for the 2020/2021 school year. However, students of Alchemical Herbalism are given first priority on any live workshops that we offer before they are opened to the general public. You will receive email announcements for any live events we may have. Please note any live workshops that may be available to you as a student are not covered in your tuition for the Alchemical Herbalism online program.

Can I ask questions or interact with other students?

Absolutely! A major feature of being an Alchemical Herbalism student is access to our exclusive Student Teahouse. Here you can setup your own personal profile, post to your activity feed, start a forum discussion, make connections with your fellow classmates, start a study group, and give updates on what you’re learning, struggling with, or need support with.

If you have questions, there are a number of ways to get it answered:

  1. The program is a fully searchable database, so you can find the lessons and specific locations within videos that answer your questions.
  2. You get access to our knowledge base, which has thousands of articles, questions and answered from the past 8 years of running our courses. You get access to the articles from all 6 Evolutionary Herbalism courses at no extra charge.
  3. If you can’t find your answer there, you can submit your question to be answered on one of Sajah’s Q&A videos that are published on a weekly-ish basis. You also get access to ALL past Q&A videos, which is literally hours of additional content.

Do your videos have transcriptions or captions?

We’re working to get captions on our videos, but it’s a large project and we don’t have a date yet of when this feature will be available. This is a priority project as we want to make the course available to everyone. However, there are currently PDFs for each lesson in the program that you can download for your reference. 

Can I download the videos for the Herbal Alchemy Training Sessions?

Unfortunately the training session videos are not downloadable, and will only be available to watch until enrollment for Alchemical Herbalism closes.
