Numen, defined as the animating force in nature,is a documentary film about our connection to the earth. Featuring stunning footage of medicinal plants and thought-provoking interviews with herbalists, doctors, activists, and many others, the film explores what we're doing to the earth and how that is reflected in our bodies. Numen explores ways to heal this relationship - plant medicine is one way, food is another, lifestyle choices are yet another that are all explored in the film. Most broadly, the film inspires us all to deepen our relationship with the natural world and reminds us of the healing made possible by re-embracing our place in the wider web of life.
Is your medicine making you sick?
Do you know where it came from and how it was made?
In an era of increasing degradation of human and environmental health, the film celebrates a practice of healing that recognizes that we can't be well until the planet is well.
Join herbalists and activists across the country to use Numen as a springboard for deepening conversations about building grassroots, ecologically sustainable healthcare in your community. Use the film to raise awareness and inspire action in your community and help create a national grassroots medicine movement that is as potent and powerful as the local food movement.
