Know Your Plants

Every plant has a story to tell. A close look at each one brings into a relief a vibrant, varied world of unique teachers, guardians, guides, and friends. As we deepen our connection to a plant by learning about its particular behavior, chemical make-up, natural cycles, we become sensitive to the host of physiological and psychological effects it has on us. Each plant also has a rich history of lore involving its spiritual and medicine usages in ancient cultures, which is often reflected in myth and spiritual practices.

The following blogs shine a spotlight on our plant and fungi friends.
