Here it is! Part Two of the Stephen Harrod Buhner interview series!
The more I watch these videos, the more inspired and excited I become. Stephen gives voice to that part of us that seeks the "Wildness of the World".
In Part 3 he discusses why medicine made by hand is superior to those you purchase (here is a hint.. "relationship"), as well as naming some of his favorite "plauge herbs"!
In Part 4 he addresses Plant Prohibitions and Psychoactive Herbs! Believe me, you want to hear his comments!
By the end of these videos I think you will agree, Stephen is one of the leading minds (and Hearts) in his field today. ~Daniel Vitalis
One of our greatest fears is to eat the wildness of the world.
"Our mothers intuitively understood something essential: the green is poisonous to civilization. If we eat the wild, it begins to work inside us, altering us, changing us. Soon, if we eat too much, we will no longer fit the suit that has been made for us. Our hair will begin to grow long and ragged. Our gait and how we hold our body will change. A wild light begins to gleam in our eyes. Our words start to sound strange, nonlinear, emotional. Unpractical. Poetic." ~Stephen Harrod Buhner
"Once we have tasted this wildness, we begin to hunger for a food long denied us, and the more we eat of it the more we will awaken. It is no wonder that we are taught to close off our senses to Nature. Through these channels, the green paws of Nature enter into us, climb over us, search within us, find all our hiding places, burst us open, and blind the intellectual eye with hanging tendrils of green.
The terror is an illusion, of course. For most of our million years on this planet human beings have daily eaten the wild. It's just that the linear mind knows what will happen if you eat it now." ~ Stephen Harrod Buhner
