Patrick Kooyman

Ethnobotanist, Herbalist

Patrick is a herbal medicine maker, and custom formulator who wild harvests local plants and fungi, as well as cultivating medicinal herbs. He has a background in ethnobotany ans is  passionate about developing relationships with the plants themselves, and learning about herbs through both scientific and traditional use knowledge systems.

 

Patrick’s training has emphasized a Western and scientific approach to herbal medicine and he has studied extensively in the phytochemistry and pharmacology of herbs, and how these specific actions in the body relate to the effects of the whole herb. Patrick also been strongly influenced by shamanic practices and traditional plant medicine systems of South and Central America. In shamanic practice, the plants themselves are considered to be living conscious beings, and these plants teach us through the direct experience of working with them. An emphasis on direct experience has also led him to be interested in organoleptics, using our senses (especially taste and smell) to learn the medicine of plants.
