Rose­mary Glas­tar calls forth deep grat­i­tude for and mind­ful­ness of the plant world as she walks with us through the world of herbal­ism in this pre­cious episode. Remind­ing lis­ten­ers of the val­ue of con­nect­ing to the well­spring of earth, Rose­mary con­tem­plates the ways plants shape us and make us into com­pan­ions when we work with them. Woven through­out the con­ver­sa­tion is an under­stand­ing that the earth has a des­tiny of its own, one we can­not com­plete­ly com­pre­hend with­in our human lifespans.

Rose­mary Glad­star has been prac­tic­ing, liv­ing, learn­ing, teach­ing and writ­ing about herbs for over 50 years. Con­sid­ered a star fig­ure in the mod­ern herbal move­ment and often referred to as the god­moth­er of Amer­i­can herbal­ism. Rose­mary is the author of twelve books includ­ing Med­i­c­i­nal Herbs: a Begin­ners Guide, Herbal Heal­ing for Women, Rose­mary Glad­stars Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Well Being and Herbal Heal­ing for Men.
