Please continue this podcast!!! 2 suggestions
I've been loving the majority of the episodes and have found them so nourishing to my soul (without sounding "woo woo" as the podcast host says😅). I have been using Goethan observation as described in two of the episodes as a form of meditation and have been feeling a deeper connection with the trees I walk by on my way to work and back.
I just ran out of episodes to listen to and wish they would continue making more. It's so hard to find quality podcasts on herbalism like this one. My only complaint is that I wish that the sound quality was better especially as oftentimes the voices can be quite soft spoken. I would also like to hear more from indigenous healers from around the world being represented.
