Speaker: Kat Maier, RH (AHG). Natural philosopher Johann Wolfgang von Goethe developed a methodology of working with plants in a scientific manner in which the student enters into the experience of the phenomenon (plant or tree) itself, versus engaging intellectually or in an abstract manner. By approaching a plant with an empty mind and open heart, it is possible to allow the patterns and meaning of a plant to emerge and to understand nature in a truly holistic way. Goethe maintained that this practice, while rigorous, allows for the development of the observer themselves. We will take two fifteen-minute breaks during the class for participants to go outside and practice these exercises.
