Numen, defined as the animating force in nature, is a 75-minute documentary film focusing on the healing power of plants and the natural world.
Featuring stunning footage of medicinal plants and thought-provoking interviews, the film calls for a re-awakening of traditional knowledge about plants and their uses.
Numen is for herbalists, gardeners, medical practitioners, plant lovers—and everyone concerned about human and environmental health.
The most important take-home message from Numen is to step outside, spend time in your garden, in the woods, in the meadow outside of town. Be grateful and open your heart to the mystery that is around us all, each moment. For more info, see http://www.numenfilmjax.com.
The event is a fundraiser for the Sacha Warmi Center in Ecuador (see http://sachawarmicenter.org/).
