In this touching conversation Unchatwa shares his healing journey inspired and guided by the "Seven Herbs: Plants as Teachers" by Matthew Wood.
Unchatwa is generous in opening up about the profoundness of his journey, giving accounts of emotional and physical healing including: family lineage, great loss, Borderline Personality Disorder, Lyme Disease, amazing metaphor and so much more.
As Matt guides us through the Seven Guideposts and Unchatwa shares his correlating experiences as he spent initially one month, then one year with each herb, the multidimensional nature of plants is clearer than ever.
Take a moment to watch the "Seven Herbs: Plants as Teachers - Free Interview." This recording is from February 19, 2019 in Ashland, Oregon. Here Matthew talks about the subject of the "Seven Herbs" and the "Seven Stories."
About the Book
"In fine inspired prose Matthew Wood teaches us the personalities of seven common herbs and the corresponding human personalities for which they provide benefit. Seven Herbs: Plants as Teachers synthesizes insights from the teachings of Paracelsus, the science of homeopathic medicine, and the stories of the Bible to help us understand how the nature that surrounds us teaches and heals us. After reading this book, you will find it more difficult than ever to separate the science, art, and spirit of healing."
- Dana Ullman, M.P.H.
"Matthew Wood in his book has succeeded in integrating information in a manner which is rarely seen in contemporary writing. Starting with the works of Bohm, Paracelsus, Hahnemann, Burnett, and Bach, he has studied long and hard and has created a work that is far greater than the sum of its parts. This book belongs in the library of healers of all persuasions."

This is a 10 star or more class. Umchatwa’s story about his drum was deeply illuminating and Matt’s interpretation on the Genesis stories made me view that history in a different light. I’ve never thought a lot about using herbs as flower essences so will definitely be trying that out now that I’ve watched this class. I’ve though of them more along the lines of emotional rescue, not so much spiritual enlightenment—so hearing how impactful they were for Umchatwa’s journey has really inspired me. Hope to see more from Matt and Umchatwa team teaching in the future.Read Less

Absolutely amazing. I had a very interesting moment while listening to this and was moved deeply. It seems sometimes you don’t even need to take the herb but simply hearing others stories and still have great spiritual lessons. It was powerful and got me closer to herbs in a beautiful way. Thank you!Read Less
