Stephen Harrod Buhner is the author of 19 books, including Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm, The Lost Language of Plants and Sacred Plant Medicine. He is the senior researcher for the Foundation for Gaian Studies and has taught for more than 30 years throughout North America and Europe. We’ll discuss James Lovelock’s theory that our planet is a self regulating biological entity, which is known as the Gaia Hypothesis. Also, we discuss the relationship between humans and bacteria, humans and plants and the patterns that connect us. Stephen tells why he disagrees with the notion that humans are a plague on the planet. He also talks about the function of what we think are invasive plants and weeds. Then, Buhner shares a different opinion on environmentalism and how it relates to plant intelligence. Later, we discuss what state of perception is necessary for interacting with plants. We’ll also talk about hallucinogenic plants and the idea that humans should be partaking what is native to their homeland.
