Humoral Temperments


Jim McDonald


Jim McDonald

July 26-28, 2019

. : Humoral Temperaments: .

The temperments correlate to the elements of earth, air, fire and water, and these elements give rise to humours and the energetic principles of heat and cold, dampness and dryness, tension and laxity. Understanding these patterns, and how temperaments and energetics work together gives an important framework for using the temperaments in a practical manner.

We will explore each of the four temperaments: Melancholic, Sanguine, Phlegmatic and Choleric in debth, looking at how they incline one towards physical, behavioral and emotional predispositions. We will look at when are they in excess or deficiency and when are they overtly blocked. How do these inclinations manifest in the body and what herbs exacerbate and balance them.

Wildroot Herb School, Bellingham, WA... we'll send ya out specific directions and such before the weekend.

Cost for the entire weekend is $250. Early registration will assure a productive, amusing and enlightening weekend and ~really~ helps me out with getting everything set up.

Friday from 7 til 9pm, Saturday from 10 till 6ish, and Sunday from 10 till 4ish (with breaks for stretching and eating, of course...).

jim mcdonald is an herbalist in southeast Michigan (that cool state that looks like a mitten you can see from space) where he teaches, sees clients, wildharvests, and concocts herbal formulas. His approach to herbalism is a blend of traditional folk and indigenous influences mixed up with a bit of 19th century eclectic and physiomedical vitalism, which he tries to blend with a bit of humor and discretionary irreverence so as not to appear to be too serious about life. jim hosts the website www.herbcraft.org which lists his offerings and conveys his thoughts of plants and herbalism.
