A note from Robin Rose

Hi, Robin Rose Bennett here, storyteller, herbalist and green witch.

I’m blessed to live on the edge of 3,000 acres of protected state forest in northern NJ. And to have been working with, teaching about, and learning from the plants and other plant people for over thirty years.

I’ve learned that herbs are uniquely gifted in helping us heal body, mind, heart and soul. As we attune to their spiritual teachings, they help us deepen our relationships with ourselves, each other and the web of life. And it is a delight and honor to be part of the HerbRally community!

When Mason invited me to contribute, I sat down in my medicine wheel and recorded this video as my first offering. I hope you enjoy this meditation with Avena sativa (Oatstraw) where I invite you to put down tiny roots and move like the plant, to have an experience of freedom, fluidity and earth connection.

This meditation is also available in her classic herbal "The Gift of Healing Herbs".


Robin Rose Bennett is a story-teller, writer, and herbalist. She has been offering classes in Wisewoman Healing Ways: Herbal Medicine and EarthSpirit Teachings since 1986 - at herb conferences, festivals, clinics, medical and nursing schools, and most joyously, outside with the plants. Robin Rose shares herbal medicine with gratitude for the loving generosity of the plants and the magic, mystery, and beauty of the web of life.

She is on the faculty of the New York Open Center and the Arbor-Vitae School of Traditional Herbalism, and is the author of two meditation mp3’s and the books: Healing Magic- A Green Witch Guidebook to Conscious Living and The Gift of Healing Herbs- Plant Medicines and Home Remedies for a Vibrantly Healthy Life.
