Episode 7: Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer – Book Review

Description

Hello friends! Maria and Jackie here, returning from the holiday break with an exciting episode!

This month, we dive into the mindful practice of connecting with nature and our role in it through the beautiful book Braiding Sweetgrass. Written by Robin Wall Kimmerer, a botanist and Citizen of Potawatomi Nation, this book weaves indigenous wisdom and scientific data to illustrate how we must become mindful of our connectedness to the natural world. We both loved this book and recommended it to everyone. Thank you for this gift, Robin Wall Kimmerer.

Be well friends!
