If you’re a practitioner working from home and missing face-to-face opportunities to catch up with colleagues, it’s a great idea in touch with other practitioners. A direct message, phone or Zoom call to debrief is important now more than ever.
And fun! One silver lining of these extraordinary times is that I’m having a lot more chats with my herbal mentor, Sue Evans. She was one of my herbal medicine lecturers in the late 80s, who nurtured me as a new graduate through Vicherbs and, long before I felt ready, made me step up to lecture at SSNT.
Talking ethics with Dr Susannah Evans
Sue and I have some long and fanciful rants, putting our world to rights. Inevitably most conversations come back to herbal and naturopathic politics, ethics and sustainability. Would you like to eavesdrop on one of them?
In this video we touched on how overwhelming it can feel when adding a sustainable filter to the way we practice. So what can you do, as a busy herbalist or naturopath who has heard of supply chains and sustainability and wants to know more about it but at the same time it feels like change will be too hard?
Watch the the video and learn about one small thing you can do as a naturopath/herbalists to be more sustainable.
