Interview by
Joanna Harcourt-Smith

In this week’s episode Steven Martyn speaks with Joanna about: a journey of initiation with elders; the forgotten, mystical origins of Western culture; interacting with Divinity in the garden; the inside of everything; changing a culture that is backwards; a deep relationship with the Spirit of the land and the ancestors; remembering where we went off the path; the healing and bond that Gaia is offering us; a language of intimacy with Nature; creating a garden in a harmonious way; the tantric way of attuning to the energy waves of Nature; leaving seeds for those who are to come.
