Hear the birdsong? Yeah..so..this is where it's at for me now.. this is what turns me on and revs me up.. I make plant medicines as my art.. nothing illegal just helpful and natural. Super clean and organic. I want to help people. I want to be the medicine in this life and I feel that everything I've done in this life has set me on this path.
This work is my art and my esoteric religion. I don't care so much what others think. I'm with the goddess now every day.
I realize what I'm saying sounds strange. But I've had a lot more strange in my life than normal. Maybe it was the aspirin overdose at six. Maybe it was the yearly month of bronchitis and coincident month of codiene cough syrup. Or maybe it was the fact that when I was nine I used to dig deep holes in the fields and lay in them. Breathing the Earth and becoming one with her. Hell, maybe it was the purple microdot I took during history class at 15 where I felt like I touched divine genius for the first time.
Or maybe it was something else. Like this was where I was going all along. And I'm doing it. I'm learning to listen to the plants and to portray their essence, so that the plant being can join with us and we can be healed in it's presence.
How can you help? My family makes most of our money through the sales of our art and private commissions. Ask about purchasing art work, jewelry and botanicals. I don't charge crazy amounts. I believe everyone shouldbe able to collect original art works. You can also message your friends about this page.
My uncle, who is literally a monk and a farmer, has non-hodgkins lymphoma from roundup exposure. One of his pills costs a thousand dollars a day. And you know what it is? Thalidamide. This work is very personal to me. Thank you for supporting the medicine that the Goddess created for her people.

Nos anciens connaissaient la valeur des haies qu'ils avaient plantées. Elles leur permettaient non seulement d'enclore le bétail mais leur fournissaient également de multiples ressources alimentaires, médicinales ou artisanales. Le bois et les lianes servaient au chauffage et à la cuisson mais aussi à la fabrication d'outils et d'objets de la vie courante. Côtoyant quotidiennement ces plantes, ils en avaient percé les secrets. Qui, alors, aurait pu imaginer que l'on puisse arracher des haies si précieuses ? Aujourd'hui, combien d'entre nous connaissent les noms et les vertus de ces plantes qui vivent autour de nous ? #editionsdurouergue, #prixredouté#bocage#haiechampetre#arbre#ethnobotany#alaincanet#ap32
The Yerba Mate article is up! In the article you can learn about this outstanding holly plant, how it was traditionally harvested by yerbateros, how it was utilized medicinally, and even how to prepare it the way they did in 18th century Paraguay (my new favorite method). Your input is greatly appreciated. #yerbamate#ethnobotany#medicinalplants#history#puyp Read the article at pullupyourplants.com
