Pacific Rim College is a Canadian distributor of The Practicing Herbalist: Meeting with Clients, Reading the Body by Margi Flint.
In this gem of a book you will find Margi’s thoughts and insights about the whole process of establishing a practice, functioning as a practitioner and then actually surviving. She does a masterful job of synthesizing the various ideas and influences from her many teachers, especially the late William LeSassier. (William was one of the foremost herbalists of his generation and will be sorely missed.) Not only will you find advice on all aspects of starting a practice, but specifics down to the nitty gritty of how to organize your desk. You will learn everything from the organizational minutiae to ways of greeting patients. Such issues are often the most challenging for the new practitioner.
The third edition of The Practicing Herbalist is enriched with in-depth discussions of the complexities and interactions of the endocrine system and the importance of understanding intrinsic factor as well as more of Margi’s insights into ‘reading the body’ as a diagnostic tool. As always, The Practicing Herbalist is not only eminently practical and useable, but is embellished with lovely etchings of the author’s own artwork.
