EagleSong Evans Gardener: Rekindling the Heart of Health

After a short break, John returns to HerbMentor Radio in a conversation with one of his first herbal mentors, EagleSong Evans Gardener.

Go beyond “this herb is for that dis-ease” and body systems healing and journey into the garden, where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. EagleSong starts with the most basic question, “What is good health?”

Along the journey EagleSong shares her unique perspective on herbalism, and reintroduces you to some of her botanical friends, including the hawthorn and linden trees. Get a new perspective on healing the heart as John takes you back to his herbal learning roots.
