86. Plant Intelligence: Understanding and Communicating With Plants, Nature and Higher Realms of Soul and Self With Dr. Monica Gagliano, Professor In Evolutionary Ecology

Can plants “speak”?

Do they communicate?

Can they “learn”, have “families”, etc?

I am thrilled to have you here for this week’s brilliant and fascinating guest, Dr. Monica Gagliano!

Dr. Gagliano is an exceptional evolutionary behavioral ecologist who pioneered the field of bio-acoustics and published research on plant cognition: scientifically proving plants’ abilities to perceive, learn, remember and communicate with a consciousness not all too different from our own. In this enlightening conversation, Dr. Gaglano shares a story that is also told in her book, “Thus Spoke The Plant,” about how the plants actually instructed her design of the experiment that demonstrated their sentience. Humans are truly not the “superior” species! In fact, plants are our “elders” and have always collaborated and communicated with human societies for food and medicine, a relationship that has unfortunately crumbled in our noisy, consumer-based modern era. Dr. Gagliano emphasizes how becoming open to new forms of communication with the plant kingdom will ultimately lead us back to ourselves, providing the deep connection and groundedness that our society is so desperately seeking right now. She shares with us her experience in Australia’s COVID-19 lockdown and how her relationship with the land helped provide the answers that she intuitively needed to alleviate her perceived isolation. Dr. Gagliano’s approach to both conventional science and the intuitive discoveries beyond are enlightening, inspiring and hold great promise for the healing of our species. So…cozy up and get ready for this heartwarming and eye-opening conversation with the one and only Dr. Monica Gagliano! I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did!
