Margi Flint practices in the seacoast town of Marblehead, Massachusetts and over the past forty years has become their "village herbalist." She lectures in Canada, Europe and the States (so far). Home is feeling comfy; the gardens are beautiful. The book signings in Europe will begin when lectures are arranged and the environment is safe for all.
Margi has been working with people and herbs since she began her herbal studies in 1974. Her clinical practice evolved through continued study with admired herbalists. Influential herbalists have been Rosemary Gladstar, David Winston, Matthew Wood, Christopher Hobbs, Kate Gilday, Mindy Green, Chanchal Chabrera, Annie McIntyre, Jeffrey Bland, the late great William LeSassier, David Crow, Karyn Sanders and Sarah Holmes and many more.
This composite of teachers created a truly world-blended-practitioner. A little Ayurveda, some Chinese, lots of Aromatherapy, Native American thoughts with some science and a heavy dose of Folk. Throw in years of studying supplements, their quality, best combinations, and time of day to consume, add to those twenty years of attending births as a labor coach and herbalist, as well as raising kids who have grown into wonderful loving and accomplished adults.
"We teach through the filter of our experience," states Margi, and what a varied and powerful experience these teachers and clients have built into her filter!
