The 8th International Herb Symposium brings together some of the world's most respected and honored herbal healers to share their herbal wisdom, love and knowledge of the plant world. As our Earth Mother becomes smaller, the need for planetary healing and consciousness becomes even greater. Herbalists and people who love plants have a unique connection to that healing consciousness. The tools that we use, the plant medicines of the earth, are an umbilical cord to her heart. This symposium is dedicated towards re-establishing and creating a deeper connection to the healing essence of the plants both for planetary and personal healing.
