The plants are our teachers. The traditions of using plant medicines to heal and to explore our relationship with the Great Spirit predate scripture. No words seem to be able to accurately describe the truth behind the great mystery. Even when we see into its depths, and come away with a conviction of love and compassion, words utterly fail to express how profoundly our world is changed. Nothing we say can do justice to the intense gratitude we feel for being. And yet we try.
