Phoenix Rose Bio
is Jane Eliza and I am Phoenix Rose.
my childhood years in a small country town in central New South
Wales, Australia and it was here that my awareness of the healing
energy of plants began to awaken. My favourite food was anything
that had a generous sprinking of herbs in it .... thyme, oregano,
marjoram, rosemary, sage .... these were my favourite flavours.
Somewhere deep inside me, I knew, even as a child, that these
were healing plants & I just couldn't get enough!
also there in that hot & dusty town that I began to understand
that I am one of the lucky ones.
This is my Mother, Ma'adi, holding my 3
day old Son, Narayan. As a young child, this is the woman who
taught me to live with a loving heart, a strong mind & open
arms. Struggling to look after us on her own, she still found
space in her life to take in children who were not so wanted or
loved. She continued to do that right through my childhood &
teenage years, and there are now too many people to count, from
all sorts of cultures, who call her "Mum".
