Quote for Today

In Part 2 of IN SEARCH OF THE DIVINE VEGETAL there was a quote from shaman and author Martin Prechtel that is worth sharing.  Just a little one:

 “The main reason to travel is to realize the poverty of your own culture.”




  1. i listened to Martin Prechtel interview on a progressive radio station in Southern Oregon. he was to speak in Ashland, Oregon either the same night or on the following evening. He reminded me of the late wonderful Joseph Campbell.i wish i could have gone to Ashland to hear him. Realizing the poverty of other cultures is what makes us rich. My thanks to Martin Prechtel.
