“The Universe has a way of reminding you what the most important things in the world are for you and why you are here and what your purpose is. And for me, it was really getting involved in herbalism and healing with plants.” (4:47)

“One of the real gifts nature offers is helping us connect to ourselves and to our own inner voice which is a critical part of not just our health and our happiness but also our ability to be in our purpose.” (18:49)

“We prioritize our time. And anyone can take a day every couple of weeks to rent a car, take a train, take a bus, whatever it is, and go somewhere beautiful.” (21:59)

“When we go into that heart intelligence, it helps us to really connect not just to ourselves, not just to the people around us, and not just to the natural world, but also to the spirit world, and that is one of our entryways in.” (34:07)
