About Your Teacher:
Dylan Warren-Davis

The knowledge that Dylan brings to these “Living History of Western Herbal Medicine” webinars is drawn from a variety of different sources and experiences and has been involved with yoga and meditation for more than 40 years.

From the time he first qualified as a medical herbalist with the National Institute of Medical Herbalists in 1982; having seen the serious limitations of the pharmacological explanation of the way herbs work, Dylan has sought out the metaphysical knowledge upon which the Western Herbal tradition has been based. It was a lengthy journey, spanning several decades of research, through Hermetic, Cabalistic, Alchemical and Astrological knowledge.

Having practiced herbal medicine for over 35 years he is now ready to present the principles of this long forgotten and much needed foundation of the Western Herbal Tradition.

Learn more about Dylan:

I am however soaking up and diving in to all the many aspects of ancient wisdom that you have helped open up for me, that are still as so obviously hugely relevant and applicable today as they were then - particularly as some form of opposition to the current seemingly unchecked paradigm of 'reductionism' that appears to dominate our current day worlds of science and medicine.
I was looking for some inspiration to help support the learning and remembering not only of the many medicinal herbs and their healing virtues, without having to slog through endless monographs, but also how these healing virtues can be associated to our individual constitutions and the disturbances with in them that give us our various forms of dis-ease.
In this respect your approach and teachings are really refreshing and hugely enlightening and I am looking forward to continuing on with learning more on these ancient wisdoms as I feel I am just at the start with plenty more 'wow moments' to come!

or anyone interested in natural health using herbs or “weeds” that grow all around us, then I heartily recommend you subscribe to the brilliant 3-part series on The Alchemy of Herbs by the Medical Herbalist, Dylan Warren Davis. Dylan comes from a long line of herbalists and trained the National Institute of Medical Herbalists. He was taught the virtues of herbs by his mother when a young boy and then combined the use of herbs with astrology following in the footsteps of the illustrious Nicholas Culpeper.
You do not need a knowledge of astrology to follow the information Dylan conveys, but if you do know some astrology, you will look afresh at the common plants growing around you and have some deeper understanding as to how you can safely and easily use them to maintain optimum health. The section on Comfrey or “Knitbone” as it is also known and how it can help with teeth and bone issues was especially interesting. I immediately rushed out to see how my Comfrey plants were doing! A great series and one to tell your friends and family about.

I first met Dylan when I invited him to teach at the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine's first ever Canvas Conference in the early 1990's and I am still learning from him nearly 30 years later!
His recent webinar on The Alchemy of Herbs and the Art of Physic was such a helpful overview of Culpeper's Medicine and all the extensive signatures and archetypal qualities of medicinal plants that come to life when taking astrological and planetary observations into consideration. It gives such a holistic and holographic viewpoint of people and plants that makes so much sense and brings a significant degree of satisfaction to comprehending the Cosmic influences on us and our plants, as well as the planet!
Medical Astrology and Planetary Archetypes of Herbs is a welcome adjunct to the evolution of my herbal practice, and I am grateful to have more time to focus on this incredibly enlightening subject area in the last few years. It has significantly enhanced my constitutional assessment of patients and plants and Dylan's continued teaching support has been so important in my attempt to understand more deeply the astrological influences of the plants in Portugal I am encountering now, many of which are not found listed under Culpeper's Medical Writings
