Each one of us has a story of how we ended up walking the plant path. Many stories I’ve heard have been a mixture of a dark night of the soul kind of healing crisis - meets - falling head over heels into the world of herbalism kind of love story with plants.
Though each herbalist has their own tale to tell, there’s one thing we most likely have in common - there was a pivotal moment where a plant touched something deep within that awakened the calling to share their healing medicine with others.
This episode is an account of that pivotal moment that changed my life and set me upon the plant path. It's a distillation of the reason I get up every morning to follow the work the plants have set before me as an herbalist - to pollinate the healing power of the plants, helping them to spread their medicine out into the world where it's needed.
