Experience 'Medicine in the Wild', a Medicinal Plant & Traditional Medicine Walking Trail in the South Texas Brush Country led by
Tony Ramirez, Coyotl Cuica Cuitlahuac 'Singing Desert Coyote'.
Accompany Tony for some wilderness therapy along the Medicine Path and learn about the
many native plant species and their traditional uses, as well as some of the science behind the tradition.
Traverse through ancient, sacred grounds where our native ancestors once roamed. Have the opportunity to experience ceremonial medicine as practiced among the indigenous people. See wild
plants that yield conventional medicine. Sample various seasonal wild fruits, berries, mesquite beans, cactus pads, leaves, twigs or roots. Along the trail visit an old 'medicine tree', where you
can symbolically leave a wish, prayer, or petition within its branches.
This 'Medicine in the Wild' encounter will provide a memorable experience that will deepen your knowledge and appreciation of our healing earth and give you a sense of hope and renewal.
