A new film that herbies are sure to love!

I am really looking forward to this film on my favorite subjects - Health and Herbs.

I haven't seen the film yet, but Rosemary Gladstar says:

"Numen is a magnificent depiction of the healing essence of plants. The filmmakers captured the magic, the mystery, the beauty of plants and their importance as herbal medicine in our contemporary health care system. Inspiring and educational, Numen has a place in the library of anyone interested in medicine, plants, gardening and earth ecology. It’s a powerful film that I’ll recommend that everyone see”
