What do yoga and plant medicine have in common?
In order to connect with and communicate with plants, and to intuit the plant medicine that will be right for a person, we must be sensitive to the subtle body. The yoga tradition offers mindfulness practices that get us in touch with the subtle body, and hone our capacity to live from deeper and deeper layers of reality. As we deepen, an awareness of the life force flowing through all things emerges. The understanding that we exist in a collective mind becomes clear. We unfold into a pervasive and spontaneous wisdom, an undeniable knowledge of the deep nature of things.
