DESCRIPTION

"Cowan has charted the territory for a medicine of the past and the future and restores one of the vital links for this to happen—the healing power behind our relationship with the plant world."—Malidoma Somé, author of Of Water and the Spirit: Ritual, Magic and Initiation in the Life of an African Shaman

"Eliot Cowan's inspiring Plant Spirit Medicine explores the intrinsic unity and connectedness of all living things. It extends the boundaries of consciousness to include not just humans and animals but plants as well. Important not only because of its profound implications for healing, this book is a blueprint for our survival. It illuminates the kind of sacred regard we must develop for all of life on Earth if our species is to survive and thrive."—Larry Dossey, MD, author of One Mind: How Our Individual Mind Is Part of a Greater Consciousness and Why It Matters

Whether you live in a mountain cabin or a city loft, plant spirits present themselves to us everywhere. Since its first printing in 1995, Plant Spirit Medicine has passed hand-to-hand among countless readers drawn to indigenous spirituality and all things alive and green. In this updated edition, Eliot Cowan invites 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 many new insights, this guide unfolds as a series of chapters on how plant spirit medicine helped Cowan resolve specific challenges in his own healing journey and in his work with others. In the telling, we learn how plant spirits can directly communicate with and aid all of us, including:

  • Plant spirit medicine's five-element view of healing
  • Ways to assess our own states of health and balance
  • Receiving guidance from plants, including those found within herbal preparations
  • New passages on community and sacred plants such as peyote, marijuana, and tobacco
  • Additional interviews with plant shamans across diverse traditions, and more

Review for Plant Spirit Medicine

I have already been connected with plants since traveling to Peru. After reading the book, plants actually started to talk to me. And they say good and uefull things and I feel them much more alive and freindly. I also started to use plants mentioned in the book with success. I use by the way Ayahuaska and other plants regularly. I also started to pay attention and recall my dreams.

Review for Plant Spirit Medicine

I had already begun working with trees, sort of accidentally, when I came across's Eliot's work. I am convinced that the trees and plants wanted me to have some guidance about how to work with them.

If you hadn't already some knowledge of shamanistic techniques, I think you would find this a strange little book. But this man is really steeped in plant spirit work. I think he has more to offer, and I would like to know more, but he may reserve deeper stuff for his students. Right away I want to read it again.

Review for Plant Spirit Medicine

The book took me down hitherto unknown metaphysical paths. It reinforced my belief in those immortal words of Voltaire, "We must tend our garden." When my bamboo speaks, I can now listen better.
