For years, most homeopaths have practiced with a relatively small group of plant remedies. However, our understanding of plants and how to use them in the last decade has changed exponentially.
“Wonderful Plants” by Jan Scholten of the Netherlands and “Wondrous Order” by Michal Yakir of Israel burst upon the homeopathic scene about ten years ago. They gave us tools to approach the plant kingdom, understand the plants we prescribe and expand into other, often previously undiscovered, plant remedies.
The two systems vary and are, in fact, based on different botanical classifications. So, practitioners can choose one or the other or, like me, use both in their case analyses.
I am endlessly grateful to these brilliant homeopaths for gifting us with the fruit of their hard work.
Yakir’s system aligns the evolution of plant groups alongside the human development process, creating a system that helps us understand patient pathology concerning many plant remedies. Moreover, once explained, her method is intuitive for those who understand the struggle of human development in psychological and philosophical terms.
In our class, I will introduce Michal Yakir’s table with case examples and suggest ways of using her classification system in your practice. I will also provide a short comparison with Scholten’s system, which you can choose to study in-depth the next day.
The only resources for this class are Michal Yakir’s book “Wondrous Plants” and her handy laminated chart of the “Table of Plants.” I believe Riverdale is carrying these two items. If not, they are available from Europe or the U.K. from one of these suppliers:
An additional book for those who want to delve further into this system is:
Annette Sneevliet combines Yakir’s Table with the Periodic System (added by Mahesh Gandhi), combined with Sankaran’s “ Sensations.” I recommend becoming very familiar with Yakir’s system on its own before taking this next step.
This is going to be a FULL day’s class, accessible over ZOOM.

I fell in love with Homeopathy in 1979, when I took my oldest child to see Louis Klein for treatment.
The consulting process and the perspective on health and disease – not to mention the results- impressed me deeply. When I purchased some books and began reading Kent, my love for this Art and Science grew further.
I eventually made my way to England where I studied professionally, practiced, and then registered with the Society of Homeopaths in 1998, of which I am still an overseas member. I returned to Canada in 1999 where I graduated from Louis Klein’s post-grad Homeopathic Master Practitioner programme and practiced and taught homeopathy in several provinces and online since then. I am now a registered member of the College of Homeopaths of Ontario, a provincial regulatory body.
I live in a village between Montreal and Ottawa with my husband and two cats and I spend time in British Columbia, with my grandchildren and adult children. I work online and occasionally, in person. I also mentor, supervise, and teach.
My love for homeopathy has only grown over the years. I continue to be impressed and astonished at its largely unseen and unrecognized potential for dramatically changing peoples’ lives.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
