My path has intersected with some of the most amazing herb teachers in North America, and I am glad to be affiliated with them. When we gather at conferences it is empowering to share information, stories and support for one another. Our herb community holds a great variety of ways to practice herbalism and many ways to teach herbal medicine. I am thankful that so many outstanding herbalists have influenced my path. I honor each of them, confident the wisdom they shared will continue to be reflected in my teachings.
So, to all who have come before us to show us the way, the ancient Greeks, the Eclectic Medical doctors, the herbal forefathers and foremothers; I am grateful. We have followed tradition and now have a vibrant herbal community with an incredibly strong lineage. Plants have been used all over the world as medicine from the beginning of time and today more than ever we appreciate their gifts.
I will continue to grow, expand my knowledge, gain wisdom, treat clients, listen to the plants, and weave all of my life experiences into my teachings. May all who come to Green Comfort seeking plant knowledge on the green path to herbal wisdom be transformed by the plants as they teach all of us.
