A Unique Plant Perspective

Plants are a vital part of the healing practices of the peoples of the world. 

They are a part of modern bio-medicine and ancient healing traditions.


Our unique plant perspective is rooted in the:

  •  translation of hundreds of clinical trials,

  •  incorporation of biomedical research of plant constituents,

  •  integration of years of historical evidence from healing traditions,

  •  application of holistic botanical healing techniques

  •  and knowledge gained from direct participation in plant-human partnerships.

Wise people of many cultures have prophesied that the 21st century would be a time when people would find greater ways to integrate traditions and emerging science. The mission of the Choreosophy Institute is to lead the integration process through education.

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.

 Attributed to St. Francis of Assisi and Reinhold Niebuhr (1892 - 1971)
