Of Shaman Shack Herbs
I do think Rehmannia might be the most interesting person I have ever interviewed. He is an American who has been studying Chinese herbalism for over ten years, originally under the tutelage of Ron Teeguarden.
So I was keen to probe him on the benefits of Chinese herbs, and his understanding of their potency. For every question that he answers, I feel I could ask ten more, his answers are so in-depth and revelatory. As I said at the end of the interview, he has clearly studied and learnt so much from the texts and his teachers, but also he grasps it all on an experiential level, and it’s having those two pillars of understanding that makes his knowledge so solid. He is describing quite esoteric concepts, that are really beyond the range of Western thinking, and yet he describes them in a way that makes them sound clear and obvious (to me, at least – I hope to you as well!).
Listen below and let me know what you think.
