Roses, Lavender, Nettle, Plantain, Violets, Self Heal, Yarrow, Chamomile, Calendula, Dandelion, Holy Basil, and a host of other plant friends and allies are reaching out to you, inviting you to stay centered and grounded even as the going gets tough. Rosemary Gladstar shares simple plant teachings that can strengthen you, help heal you, and light the way on your journey.
