Gaian Mind with Stephen Buhner

Pin It

I spent a weekend with Stephen Buhner, wordsmith, storyteller, poet, and teacher, at a class organized by Kathleen Maier's herb school, Sacred Plant Traditions. Stephen impregnated ideas of oneness, providing insight into the inner workings of the "Gaian Mind and the Secret Teachings of Plants", going back to the very life form and function of bacteria to the rich cultural diversity of plants.

We were asked to open our hearts to what is termed the invisibles of communication, sitting with a plant and being open to the thoughts and feelings that immerge in the present moment. I sat with what looked like a variegated wild ginger, commonly knows as Virginia Heartleaf (Hexastylis virginica), and a member of the Aristolochiaceae family. I was drawn to the unusual patters of the flower and the heart shape of the leaf. Each of us in that class had our own unique story of what we encountered that afternoon as the cicadas sung their 17-year love song. Those who participated left with the task of following their heart and tapping deeper in Gaian awareness.
