Presentation: “Plants As Solace For The Soul”
We evolved in nature, and we are intrinsically drawn to it. They say we are genetically ‘hardwired' to interact authentically in response to nature. Does our survival depend on it? As medicine maker, I have been taught to acknowledge my connection to all that is through my prayers and actions before ever offering my creations. Let’s talk about some simple, yet profound ways to consciously expand our relationships with ‘forbidden’ plants. Come hear my story & share yours as we delve into some restorative plant practices intended to soothe our souls as we navigate our way through these tumultuous times.
Jane Straight has had a passionate relationship with sacred plants for decades and has dared to engage in relationship with many ‘forbidden' species. She is the proprietress of a sweet ethnobotanical enterprise that ensures rare botanicals are disseminated worldwide. As a Grandmother now, she is often seen with a green snake magnifying glass and her 2 & 3 year old Granddaughters counting spots on ladybugs. She thrives on guiding others on their unique journeys towards plant consciousness, species interconnectedness, and respectful stewardship.
