Frank Cook, peripatetic (itinerant) herbalist
I see us quickly becoming one world. My central questions in this respect are what plants will be in our global gardens and stories? What will our global healing system be made of? Each of the living cultures of the world has something to contribute. I intend to find out what they are and share these insights with the world.

"Winter" 2007 Check In from Frank -- Costa Rica
I brought in the new year in Costa Rica. A group of us awoke in the early morning darkness of the 31st and climbed a mountain to attend a sweatlodge to reconnect with our selves and nature. We were reborn into the morning light and spent the day in silence preparing for the year ahead. (Below is an account of our trip to Costa Rica which I returned from last week.) It was perfect for me. I feel ready . . .
