St. John the Baptist Wort - Above All Icons and Medicine for When the Soul Stays, plus herb walk
Kyle Denton attempts to demonstrates how St. John’s wort can be an example of a particular aspect of nature that connects the astro theological to the natural world as described in the hermetic principle of correspondence, as above so below. I call it St. John’s wort, some call it St. Joan’s wort. Let's see the relevance of the anthropomorphism of this plant, and if the name precedes any historical figure as I show it is an allegorical representation of what we observe from the condensation of energetic patterns from the macrocosm to the microcosm. For this I rely on the signatures of the plant, the name, the medicinal virtues and more.
