Australian Plants & Plants for Healing
I am drawn to the plants of this land where I was born. The plants that are all around me, here in Australia. I feel happiest when I’ve been in wild nature for any period of time. Do you experience that peace and contentment when you connect with raw nature?
I began to get curious about Australian plants through my art practice. Whenever it was time to draw in art class I would always want to draw the native plants, the leaves and the seeds, the flowers and the stems.
Every year when I sit a 10 day Vipassana course, I connect deeply with the plants. I feel that I could never be lonely in the bush. I am with “beings” in a way I can’t explain rationally.
But when I started to look for information about
Australian plants for healing,
the rituals and traditions around Australian plant medicine,
the information seemed vague, obstructed or simply not there.
So, I am on a mission to figure out what these plants around me have to offer me, you and all of Australia (and possibly the world). I have a strong sense that a gulf of cultural disconnect could be bridged if we ate more plants of this land.
In fact there are a number of ways I want to explore plants in Australia:
Ritual & Spirituality
