Susun Weed answers 90 minutes of herbal health questions followed by a 30 minute interview with her guest Joann Calabrese.
Joann Calabrese is a skilled wellness, mindfulness, and recovery educator. She is a lifelong organic gardener and herbalist, experienced in meditation, ritual work, qigong, and tai chi. Joann combines these intersecting disciplines in her writing, workshops, and coaching to assist others in healing themselves and the world. Joann's book, _Growing Mindful – Explorations in the Garden to Deepen Your Awareness, _provides the tools and creative ideas for interacting with the green world in an energetic and meaningful way. The goal is connectedness - the intuitive understanding of being part of a larger circle of life on the planet. When we begin to experience the visible and invisible energies that touch us all, we tap into tangible support, nurturing, and wisdom. Engaging with gardens is healing on many levels, but people often overlook the energetic component of working with plants. Joann's work focuses on this connection and provides guidance for engagement.
