Numen is a fantastic movie about the healing power of plants. It includes beautiful filming and photography along with interviews with some of the most remarkable herbalists of our time.
I had the pleasure of watching Numen recently and found it to be very inspiring. Repeatedly throughout the movie I wanted to write down quotes and words of wisdom from herbalists like Rosemary Gladstar, Bill Mitchell, David Hoffman, David Winston, Kate Gilday and Dr. Tiaranna Low Dog.
If you love herbs, you will love this movie!
This is the perfect movie to share with your friends and family who are wondering why you feel compelled to grow, wildcraft and play with plants. This movie eloquently speaks to the importance and effectiveness of herbs and herbalism.
Besides discussing powerful plant medicine it also looks at how our modern day actions on this earth are shaping our personal health. While the realities of environmental pollution can be overwhelming, Numen also offers ways to heal this relationship through actions in our daily lives such as with food, plant medicine and more.
The film was created a few years ago and has recently been remade and revitalized. The new version has been edited to appeal to a wider audience and includes a lot more interview time with the late Bill Mitchell.
