The Plant Path is a window into the world of herbal medicine. With perspectives gleaned from traditional Western herbalism, Ayurveda, Chinese Medicine, Alchemy, Medical Astrology, and traditional cultures from around the world, The Plant Path provides unique insights, skills and strategies for the practice of true holistic herbalism. From clinical to spiritual perspectives, we don't just focus on what herbs are "good for," but rather who they are as intelligent beings, and how we can work with them to heal us physically and consciously evolve.





Sajah Popham is the author of Evolutionary Herbalism and the founder of the School of Evolutionary Herbalism, where he trains herbalists in a holistic system of plant medicine that encompasses clinical Western herbalism, medical astrology, Ayurveda, and spagyric alchemy.

His mission is to develop a comprehensive approach that balances the science and spirituality of plant medicine, focusing on using plants to heal and rejuvenate the body, clarify the mind, open the heart, and support the development of the soul. This is only achieved through understanding and working with the chemical, energetic, and spiritual properties of the plants. His teachings embody a heartfelt respect, honor and reverence for the vast intelligence of plants in a way that empowers us to look deeper into the nature of our medicines and ourselves.

He lives on a homestead in the foothills of Mt. Baker Washington with his wife Whitney where he teaches, consults clients, and prepares spagyric herbal medicines. 





Whitney Popham is an herbal practitioner and the co-founder of The School of Evolutionary Herbalism and Organic Unity. Her calling to plant medicine began from a deep passion for activism and a vision for creating healing and positive change in the world. She has devoted her life to that vision by being a humble vessel for the plants to touch people's lives and bring more healing and beauty into the world.


Through her own health challenges and struggles, she experienced the profound healing gifts of plant medicines and then committed her life to helping others reach vibrant levels of health. She specializes in digestive health in her clinical practice through working with herbal medicine, nutrition and lifestyle coaching. Her true gift is in listening to the plants through intuition and vision, which she uses to help her clients with healing on the emotional, psychological, spiritual, as well as physical levels of health.
