Keynote: Embodying the teachings of the Plants in Evolutionary Times - Human beings share the same innate instructions as all living beings, to grow and evolve. When wise women plant gardens, we help the plants grow an{pd fulfill their natural orientation to become who they are. How can we do the same and make a difference in our world? We will explore how to strengthen our relationship with the elements and the ways in which plants grow us: helping us to become who we truly are as they teach us to practice presence, honor our uniqueness, and walk in deep connection with Earth in joyful and loving service for the benefit of the larger communities of life we belong to. Participants are encouraged to bring a stone to hold and focus on during a special breakout session of this keynote

She has been offering classes in Wisewoman Healing Ways: Herbal Medicine and EarthSpirit Teachings since 1986 - at herb conferences, festivals, clinics, medical and nursing schools, and most joyously, outside with the plants. Robin Rose shares herbal medicine with gratitude - for the loving generosity of the plants and the magic, mystery, and beauty of the web of life.
