Many indigenous cultures hold

that the Earth is sentient and intelligent...

Now cutting-edge science is coming to the same conclusion. For example, when pine trees get over-heated, they release aerosols that create clouds to deflect solar radiation. Tobacco plants overrun by pests chemically enlist helper bugs to eat the pests. The field of Plant Intelligence (A.K.A Plant Neurobiology) shows that plants smell, taste, make clear choices, exhibit learned behavior and share resources with the sick and needy. When viewed through a Gaian lens even the coronavirus, which many believe is “not alive”,  is highly intelligent, and just might have the capacity to change the genetic code of every human on Earth. The intelligence of nature extends far past individuals and multiplies through the diverse community members (fungi, bacteria, viruses, animals) who team up in highly intelligent ecosystems. That’s pretty smart. Join Ethnobotanist and Deep ecologist Jolie Elan as we explore some mind-blowing discoveries in the fields of Deep Ecology and Plant Intelligence. Discover the radical intelligence of our Nature.

Jolie guides us through many examples where the intelligence of nature truly shines and helps strengthen our knowledge that plants show a thought process or make informed "decisions" about their everyday lives. It was a truly fascinating learning opportunity and I’m grateful that you are making this type of learning available to us.

Full of fun and interesting facts that support the mental shift and practice; from not seeing ourselves as part of nature, to always doing so.

A timely and illuminating discussion of the interconnectedness and intelligence of our planet, from ancient mycelium communication systems to scientists playing catch with plants to test their memory/stress response! Jolie draws parallels across species by describing survival mechanisms, evolutionary quirks, and community structures. Many of us here in MWIH may have a sense of the magnificent intelligence and sentience of the natural world, but it’s great to hear Jolie clearly identify and explain findings from both the modern scientific and shamanic/spiritual worlds. A great little course packed with so much wisdom!
