Many of us see tobacco use as a “nasty habit” or as a harmful addiction. And with good reason. According to the US Government website Tobacco Free, more than 16 million people already have at least one disease from smoking. Smokers die 13 years before non-smokers. It’s the leading cause of illnesses that could be prevented by lifestyle changes.
But what if tobacco is really a sacred and powerful plant teacher that we have deeply misunderstood?
Even a habitual smoker can begin to transform the relationship he or she has to this teacher plant, by integrating a simple prayer practice into daily or routine tobacco use.
I’ll be giving you more tips just like this in my upcoming webinar series:
