Plant Spirit Medicine by Eliot Cowan

A Journey Into the Healing Wisdom of Plants

Since 1995, copies of Eliot Cowan's small-press phenomenon Plant Spirit Medicine have passed hand-to-hand among those intrigued by shamanism, herbal medicine, and all things alive and green. Now, this much-anticipated updated edition invites all of us to discover the healing power of plants - not merely their physical medicinal properties, but the deeper wisdom and gifts that they offer. Enriched by the author's many explorations since its first edition, this guide unfolds as a series of chapters on how plant spirit medicine has resolved specific issues and imbalances in his own healing journey and in his work with others. Readers will learn from a wealth of stories and teachings how plant spirits can directly communicate with and aid us, including:

  • Plant spirit medicine?s five-element view of healing
  • Receiving guidance from plants, including those found within herbal preparations
  • Questionnaires to assess our own states of health and balance
  • New chapters on community and on such "controversial" sacred plants as peyote, marijuana, and tobacco
  • Additional interviews with plant shamans of many traditions

Whether we live in a mountain cabin or a city loft, the gifts of the plant spirits present themselves everywhere. Plant Spirit Medicine opens our eyes and hearts to initiate and nourish this deepest of natural bonds.
