Sometimes the best medicine rests not in plant or stone, in human comfort or celestial embrace; sometimes the best medicine, the only medicine, is the that of Place. Immersing yourself in the womb of a canyon, lingering in the trickle of an icy stream around your ankles, watching the leaves unfurl their glory in Spring's slow procession--all of this and more is the medicine of the Land itself, of the Earth Herself. It is this felt experience which is more precious and healing than any single substance could ever be.
It is no small thing to find yourself at home in a landscape and to cultivate a relationship with a place, whether or not it is where you plan to put down roots. This direct and living relationship with Land was something your ancestors and all ancient humans knew intimately. It remains a central, though forgotten, aspect of what it means to be human and to live on the Earth. This practice of creating relationship with place is something you can carry with you wherever you go. It is foundational to working with plant Medicine in a honorable way and offers a most potent balm for the Spirit and Self. So often, Herbal preparations are created and used with little actual knowledge of the place from which they came. But all plant medicine practices arose from people being in direct relationship with the Land where they lived.
