Much of my herbal medicine journey is connected to learning about plants that were either cultivated or wild crafted and sold to me by other companies. I want to take you into a different direction with my today’s guest, John Slattery.
John is a practicing bioregional herbalist, educator, author and forager helping people develop deep and meaningful relationship with wild plants. His work has been widely influenced by indigenous plant healers from throughout the Americas, herbalist Michael Moore, and most importantly, the plants and wild places of the Sonoran desert.
Some of the major takeaways from our discussion:
- Why Sonoran desert in Arizona is one of the most botanically diverse places in North America and what does it mean for a bioregional herbalists like John
- What are some examples of desert plants John employs sustainably in his formulas
- Why tapping into the heart is one of the most useful guides John recommends for anyone thinking about foraging
