Herbalogy is found in nearly every indigenous society since the most ancient of times. The study of herbs and their beneficial properties arose from the recognition and astute observation that everything in the cosmos operates according to universal principles. These principles act the same regardless of what level they are observed upon: whether it be the galaxies, plants, or even the human body.
Reverence for these patterns allowed our most ancient ancestors to use this sacred wisdom in order to restore Harmony when it has been lost: as in the case of disease or trauma. The most direct way to bring about healing and restore Harmony is through the use of plant and animal materials. The natural material chosen was one that could complement the pattern of disharmony present within that individual at that time.
There are many different and effective approaches to herbalism such as: spiritual herbalism, energetic herbalism, and pharmocological herbalism to name the most common. The type of herbalism practiced by our herbalists here at Sacred Oak makes up the former two: the spiritual and energetic types.
At Sacred Oak, we feel that to truly achieve lasting health benefits we must treat on all levels of being and we recognize that most diseases regardless of origin begin on the spiritual level. Another crucial and often overlooked factor in the healing process is the connection between our Being and the Land beneath our feet. To really feel grounded, whole, and nourished, this connection must be acknowledged and reinforced.
We welcome people of all spiritual and religious backgrounds to share in the healing energy here at Sacred Oak. Please inform our herbalists of any religious or dietary restrictions you may have so we can be aware of them and take proper precaution when filling herbal formulas.
Thank you for your cooperation.
