Who is Alex Carberry?
Alex Carberry – British born writer, thinker, Medical Herbalist and activist, raised in Guyana, South America, on the edge of the Amazon jungle – became Muslim over two decades ago. He brings sufic cosmology and the European philosophical and literary tradition together, with a strong emphasis on issues of health – physical, psychological, economic, social and spiritual – to bear on the human need for renewal and healing. He sees the human being as a unified whole, not as a fragmented creature.
His passion is understanding the pattern languages which underlay phenomena, thus he has spent a lifetime studying and decoding the patterns around him. His genius which derives from this lies in making the complex simple.
In medicine, he extends and clarifies the Greco-Arab tradition with a revolutionary fusion that draws upon the Chinese and Ayurvedic practices as well as modern industrial medicine. Alex seeks to treat the whole human being.
His work on the Four Elements restores this ancient paradigm to its energetic roots in a manner which is both simple, sophisticated and understandable to a modern audience. From this foundation, he has developed his own approach to the traditional four personality types, a system of twelve combined expressions of the four fundamental types. The Four Element system is used to examine bio-politics, medicine, psychology, management and strategic studies.
Creation as language is an understanding that uses cosmological grammar to solve modern problems, whilst applying it to psychology in an approach called Narrative Analysis.
Alex Carberry runs clinics, delivers workshops, writes and – if the schedule permits it – is available for lectures.
