The Folk Herbal Tribe

The Folk Herbal Tribe

The Folk Herbal Tribe by Jesse Wolf Hardin www.AnimaCenter.org   www.HerbalResurgence.org Whether we realize it or not, we are – as clinicians, gardeners, foragers, medicinal plant conservationists, botanists, plant illustrators, students as well as teachers of plant medicine – all constituent members of an herbal community. This is true even if we mainly do our work or pursue our passion alone, happen to feel like outsiders, avoid herbal events, or treat only family and friends. We are qualified by virtue of our interests, focus, calling or commitment… and if we identify with the group, we belong. No vetting or voting required. It is our community, because of what we share in common. The word “community” itself comes from the Latin communis,...

A Daily Devotion: Passion, Purpose, and Practice for the Herbalist

A Daily Devotion: Passion, Purpose, and Practice for the Herbalist

A Daily Devotion:  Passion, Purpose, & Practice for the Herbalist by Kiva Rose Hardin “You too can be carved anew by the details of your devotion” -Mary Oliver “It takes long practice, yes. You have to work. Did you think you could snap your fingers, and have it as a gift? What is worth having is worth working for.” -Philip Pullman, His Dark Materials I have frequent discussions with my students in which they’re struggling to understand how they can fit into what they see as the role of an herbalist. Some may base it more on a clinician model, while others have been more influenced by a village wise woman archetype. Either, and anything in between, can work wonderfully if that’s the role that best suits the individual and their context. The...

Luminarias: Giving Voice to Folk Herbalism

Luminarias: Giving Voice to Folk Herbalism

Reflections by Kiva Rose Inspired by the Book “21st Century Herbalists” www.PlantHealerMagazine.com I took the opportunity to reread all the amazing conversations in our new book, “21st Century Herbalists,” and it makes me feel stronger than ever about what these practitioners’ teaching, lives and stories offer to us all. Luminarias are paper lanterns common to my beloved Southwest, a simple candle set in sand inside a brown paper bag, usually set in rows on the rooftops or lining a road or walkway. It’s been a huge gift to my partner Wolf and I, to be able to shine a light on the many pathways of herbalism… and on many of the diverse talents in this field, people who have given so much to the world through their healing, wildcrafting and...
