Even more rewarding has been the interest of young people in the classes. I didn't even know plants could be used as medicine when I was their age. Seeing these girls make their own medicine stirs something in my heart, like a wound is healing from my own childhood. That connection to the sacred in Nature, the gifts of the earth, our living planet, to nurture that connection in our children goes a long way in healing our own disconnect.
Thank you to all who have participate in these classes. It has been a joy for me to share this with you.
