Holistic Science is Heart-led Science

Hi friends,

One of our big goals here at Soil, Soul and Spirit is to provide resources for learning about the world in a way that builds connections, ties things together, and allows you to “see the open secret” of the world, as Goethe put it.

Dennis has shared many stories with me over the years about students who, having graduated college with a science degree, came to take his courses and experience many “a-ha” moments as Dennis drew connections, gave analogies, and described universal (read: alchemical) forces active in the phenomena they had previously studied. They often said, “Finally, I get it!”

The classes, essays, lectures and books that we share strive towards what is called holistic science today, a science in which the observer and observed both participate in the phenomenon, a science that includes the unseen as much as the seen.

It is our sincere hope that science educators, students, and interested non-professionals would find value in our resources for understanding natural history, botany, biology, geology, climate, and other similar fields from a (dare I say) exciting, holistic perspective.

It is from this viewpoint that we offer Gem and Plant, a course on understanding the similarities of the ‘becoming’ of minerals and plants, seen through sacred geometry, the harmony and music of the spheres, and universal growth patterns. We hope you will join us.

For a FREE preview/jump-start for some of the concepts, please see Dennis’ video series: ​​The Alchemical Basis for Holistic Health Science.

If you are from Europe, there’s a good chance you know of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (“Gur-ta”) for his poetry and literary works. Here in the US, few people have heard of him. What most don’t know is that he was also a scientist and esotericist, one who studies the inner or secret mysteries. What…
