The Herbal Highway is a Blessing

I am profoundly grateful for the blessing of the Herbal Highway. The program helps all of us to understand our bodies, our relationship to the plants, and to genuine healing and wholeness. This program is a great service to the entire community. Many thanks and abundant blessings to all those who make it possible.

Typical

I just want to learn about plants! Why does there have to be political propaganda sprinkled throughout the show? In the chamomile episode, there’s mention of white supremacy. Why couldn’t it just be that the people want to smell pretty? Like c’mon! I want to learn about chamomile! Why do I have to hear about hatred all the time! Everywhere you go, there is nothing but hatred. It’s so sad. Plants are the most peaceful thing on the planet.
