TNP136: Maia Toll on Working with Plant, Animal and Crystal Allies in Troubled Times

62 minutes

Maia Toll is with us today speaking about creating kinship with other-than-human friends. Maia is the author of The wild Wisdom series which includes The Illustrated Herbiary, The Illustrated Bestiary, and the forthcoming, Illustrated Crystallary. I wanted to have this conversation through a lens of climate change and dynamic social transition. How can we have a conversation about working with plants and animals and crystal without discussing climate change and over-extraction, amirite?

In this episode, we also mentioned the Archetypes Deck by Kim Krans.
