“Chris and Zoe continually inspire me as they explore the ways that healing and consciousness weave together to create new visions. Through their extensive travels, authentic relationships with the people they encounter along the way, and their willingness, both together and individually, to share these visions with all of us, the green path becomes easier to follow.” - Patricia Kyritsi Howell

“Even though she flies under the radar a bit, Patricia is a strong keeper of herbal wisdom, and has followers for all the right reasons. She knows her healing, and carries the torch of natural medicine well and with flair. ” - Chris Kilham
