I took a deep breath and listened to the old brag of my heart: I am. I am. I am.
~Sylvia Path, The Bell Jar
The senses are vital to foragers of wild foods and medicines. Sight, smell, touch, or taste reveal a plant’s identity; giving way to a deep knowing of the land.
Many of us use subtler senses to guide us as we wander in the woods and fields.
Heart knowledge, and gut knowledge.
The way a plant makes a person want to sing or cry or laugh.
Sometimes it takes an immersion to develop these senses.
Or sometimes it takes an introduction.
The only way I know how to share this knowledge is by taking people out into the woods. Asking them to listen and feel in new ways (or old ways).
