Numen: The Nature of Plants

Mar 2, 2011

Numen is about the healing power of plants and the natural world. Featuring stunning footage of medicinal plants and moving interviews with leading herbalists, doctors, ecologists and others, Numen provides a vision of healthcare rooted in the traditions of herbal medicine and offers concrete steps to improve human and environmental health.

After the screening, Kelly Kindscher will be hosting a Q&A and offering ideas for how we can take action locally as a community and individually.

Dr. Kindscher is well-known for his study of prairie plants. He is the author of two books: Edible Wild Plants of the Prairie (1987) and Medicinal Wild Plants of the Prairie (1992).

His interests include ethnobotany, especially the study of cultural uses of medicinal plants in Kansas and the Great Plains; conservation of Midwest/Great Plains/Rocky Mountain habitats and ecosystems, with a special focus on native prairies; wetland and prairie restoration; and management of native plant communities and other lands.

Presented by Films For Action.
