Speaking

A little-known fact, my nickname as a child was cotorra…

…which means parrot in Spanish. As a baby in my crib, I scared the living daylights out of my mother one night when she heard talking through the baby-monitor and thought someone was in the room. When my mother ran in to check on me, she discovered that I was having a full conversation with myself! For the reason you can easily see, being a public and keynote speaker was my destiny.

I use my love of speaking, my analytical mind, as well as my connection to the plant world to inspire thought and action. As a philosopher, visionary, and public speaker, I’ve spoken in front of intimate groups and conference audiences in more than twenty countries around the world. Integrating vast experiences, I invite my audiences to look to the proven track record of the plant world in order to create healthy, connected, sustainable lives, and problem-solve in an ever-evolving world.

The Key to Human Sustainability is Rooted in the Plant World

Lots of people talk about ‘greening’ their lifestyle and ‘getting back to nature.’ But have you ever thought about this from nature’s perspective? The plant world has never lost its connection with us. We humans are the ones who are culpable for the great disconnect between our species. Due to our desire to dominate the plant world instead of co-exist, we have missed out on the opportunity to learn from them.

The Effects of Plant Music on Human Healing and Interspecies Relationships

What would happen if we were to give a plant the ability to interact with us in a way that we could understand? This is what a team of researchers set out to discover in the 1970s. They experimented with plants that open doors and gave them driver’s licenses. As a result of 40 years of exploration into plant perception, a device that enables plants and trees to play music was developed! Interacting with a variety of stimuli, artists and observers in diverse environments, plants learn how to create melody and harmony.

Co-Creating an Urban Plantasy

Once upon a time, all food was organic and nature was an integral part of our lives. But somewhere along the way, we lost our ability to communicate with trees and plants. Deforestation, species evolution, pollution and the insatiable human hunger for more land create large chasms between “our” world and “theirs”, bringing about a separation where once there was none.
