I usually don’t post shop listings on the blog and make an effort to keep the sales pitch to a bare minimum here. However, ┬áthere is a lot of important information in this particular shop listing and I don’t want to write it all again for the blog. Not so much lazy as I seem […]

Likely the most important and unexpected result of this “tour”, was the wealth of information that was shared with us by the Samburu on the medicinal and cultural functions of many of the local trees, plants and animals. The Samburu have a well-developed medicinal, spiritual/mystical and astrological tradition. They have a strong connection to the planet Venus and their creation myth tells of their origin on Venus before migrating to earth. This is reflected in the Ankh/Venus type adornment worn on the forehead of many Samburu women.
