This journal contains 125 unlined pages, peppered with illustrations of northwest plants and native wisdom. Many Native Elders remind us that plants are teachers. When we awaken our senses and observe nature, plants can lead us in being healthy and resilient. For example, yarrow reminds us of the importance of boundaries, while willow shows us how to be flexible, yet strong. These skills can be applied to our lives—helping us to build greater wellbeing. This journal is part of Plant Teachings for Growing Social-Emotional Skills, a toolkit that includes a book, cards, movement videos, posters, and an activity guide. The toolkit is especially for mental health workers, educators, and community members who are exploring behavioral health skills that are rooted in the land and Coast Salish culture. Plant knowledge, social-emotional skills, stories, mindfulness activities, and recipes on wild foods and herbal medicines are woven throughout the toolkit.
