"My approach to herbalism is my approach to life. Connecting with the deep nourishment and wisdom of the feminine-(the feminine being the non-linear, wise order of the natural world) is the foundation of my life and work. I am continually in awe of the perfect order of things when I do not intervene and let nature take it’s course. I believe that true relationship with the natural world invite curiosity and introspection. I often find myself asking profound questions that help to formulate my ever-evolving approach to life. A few years ago I found myself asking regularly, do I trust that life leans toward health? And the continual answer is yes, if it is allowed. So in the wise woman way, I like to allow health, by creating connection with the whole: whole foods, whole plants and whole people." Linda
