I purchased a patchouli plant from you last summer, and it has grown quite large. I am wondering what the pruning regimen is for patchouli.

Cut no more than a third of the height of the plant off when harvesting parts of it. Prune the branches with the growing tips in order to encourage new branches lower down the plant. That way you will get a bushier looking plant.
