2. Plants Talking to People:
This is more interesting to me, since perhaps as a human I can learn something.
All ancient cultures insisted their knowledge of plant medicines came from the plants themselves and not through trial-and-error experimentation.
Less well-known is that many Western people made this same assertion; people like Luther Burbank, who developed the potatoes you probably eat in fries or potato chips.
A recent book in this area is The Secret Teachings of Plants by Stephen Harrod Buhner. It is one of the best books on health I have even read. You can read my review of his book here: Randy’s Relationship With Plants.
Diana also interviewed him (listen here):
Stephen not only reveals some amazing facts about how our bodies work but also concrete lessons on how to directly communicate with them.

What do you think? Do you talk with plants? Do they talk back?
