“Albert Hofmann once put it . . . All attempts today to make amends for the damage through environmentally protective measures must remain only hopeless, superficial patchwork, if no curing of the “Western entelechy neurosis” ensues. . . . Healing would mean existential experience of a deeper, self-encompassing reality.”
― Stephen Harrod Buhner, Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm: Beyond the Doors of Perception into the Dreaming of Earth
The Earth doesn't make mistakes, or does it? Well it seems to me that earth is a beautiful mastermind of intelligence and creation, it has taken earth to this point to create a beautiful marvel which so far has proved to be the only life form in all of creation.
Now its hard to think that we ourselves are not the only intelligent beings, of course there are animals as well, but what about plants. And could plants hold the most intelligence of them all?
This is one powerful episode that really dives deep into the human mind, by exploring ironically plant minds, the vastness of plant intelligence is incredible and our guest today Stephen Buhner is really exploring the power of natures incredible network of extraordinary power.
With mans dependence on plants, how are plants adapting to the modern world? And how are the plants reacting to the global disaster of cutting down of rainforests. We are unfortunately not providing enough solution to the vast problem we have created and it is stated that in 100 years time they will be no rainforests left.
Humanity has left its mark on the plant world, but with plants being the solution to the worlds oxygen supply, we may need to ask ourselves is there a way the plants will find a solution to all this?

MEET STEPHEN BUHNER
Stephen Harrod Buhner is an Earth poet and the award-winning author of twenty books on nature, indigenous cultures, the environment, and herbal medicine. He comes from a long line of healers including Leroy Burney, Surgeon General of the United States under Eisenhower and Kennedy, and Elizabeth Lusterheide, a midwife and herbalist who worked in rural Indiana in the early nineteenth century. The greatest influence on his work, however, has been his great-grandfather C.G. Harrod who primarily used botanical medicines, also in rural Indiana, when he began his work as a physician in 1911.
Stephen's work has appeared or been profiled in publications throughout North America and Europe including Common Boundary, Apotheosis, Shaman's Drum, The New York Times, CNN, and Good Morning America. Stephen lectures yearly throughout the United States on herbal medicine, the sacredness of plants, the intelligence of Nature, and the states of mind necessary for successful habitation of Earth.
