There were patches of clover in the backyard where I grew up as a child. The only bee stings I received were from me accidentally stepping on bees. I often ran in bare feet in the yard because it simply felt so good, despite the regular swelling stings.

Speaking of inner grace, this new film reminds us what is available to feed and heal us all, if we choose to pursue it. There’s more to tree-hugging than meets the eye! You can learn more and watch it *here*.
