talkingplantTalking Plant Series: Introduction to the Language of Plants

with Renee Stoops, certified Plant Spirit Medicine healer.
Can we communicate with plants? Actually have a conversation? Sound like a head-in-the-clouds fantasy? Indigenous groups around the world have depended on a deep understanding of plants for survival. In our modern times, the gifts that plants have to share for medicine, healing, and friendship are no less critical.

Before we can have a conversation with the plants, we need a common language. Following the cycles of nature and borrowing a framework from Five-Element Chinese Medicine, we have a beautiful language that the plants understand very well. Once we learn this language, we can ask clear questions and receive answers that we can understand or interpret. At the end of this class, we will practice learning to recognize when a plant is trying to get your attention because it has a gift that you need. This series will be guided by Portland Nursery employee Renee Stoops, who is also a certified Plant Spirit Medicine healer.
