It was the summer of 2013. I was in a class with Appalachian Granny Herbalist, Marina Bokelman on a hot California afternoon. Amidst the heat, mesmerized by her tales of Appalachia and plant wisdom she spoke of the phrase "Heart Hand Earth". I was giddy with the words, the inspiration and connection to the phrase was so heartfelt as it perfectly embodies the process of conscious creation - to feel in your heart, use your hands to create and share with the earth, which infinitely inspires the heart to continue on in creation. Out of that afternoon, my time with the plants, nature, travel, teachers, experiences and all that embodies this process came Heart Hand Land.
