As a Plant Pioneer Ambassador (PlantPioneers.org), Marguerite Uhlmann-Bower invites us to enter the field of living organisms - awakening direct perception in the eco-literacy of human-plant relations. Emerging research demonstrates plants have embodied cognition that was once part of our human repertory - ancestrally encoded since the beginning of human time. Experience a deep and subtle connection to the natural world, hear its music and open your heart.
