A hands-on approach to working with the healing powers of plant spirits • Explores the scientific basis underlying the practices of indigenous healers and shamans • Illuminates the matrix where plant intelligence and human intelligence join • Reveals that partnering with plants is an evolutionary imperative Indigenous healers and shamans have known since antiquity that plants possess a spirit essence that can communicate through light, sound, and vibration. Now scientific studies are verifying this understanding. Plant Spirit Healing reveals the power of plant spirits to join with human intelligence to bring about profound healing. These spirits take us beyond mere symptomatic treatment to aligning us with the vast web of nature. Plants are more than their chemical constituents. They are intelligent beings that have the capacity to raise consciousness to a level where true healing can take place. In this book, herbalist Pam Montgomery offers an understanding of the origins of disease and the therapeutic use of plant spirits to bring balance and healing. She offers a process engaging heart, soul, and spirit that she calls the triple spiral path. In our modern existence, we are increasingly challenged with broken hearts, souls in exile, and malnourished spirits. By working through the heart, we connect with the soul and gain access to spirit. She explains that the evolution of plants has always preceded their animal counterparts and that plant spirits offer a guide to our spiritual evolution--a stage of growth imperative not only for the healing of humans but also the healing of the earth.

An in-depth look at the role of plant spirits in shamanic rituals from around the world • Shows how shamans heal using their knowledge of plant spirits as well as the plant’s “medical properties” • Explores the core methods of plant shamanism--soul retrieval, spirit extraction, and sin eating--and includes techniques for connecting with plant spirits • Includes extensive field interviews with master shamans of all traditions In Plant Spirit Shamanism, Ross Heaven and Howard G. Charing explore the use of one of the major allies of shamans for healing, seeing, dreaming, and empowerment--plant spirits. After observing great similarities in the use of plants among shamans throughout the world, they discovered the reason behind these similarities: Rather than dealing with the “medical properties” of the plants or specific healing techniques, shamans commune with the spirits of the plants themselves. From their years of in-depth shamanic work in the Amazon, Haiti, and Europe, including extensive field interviews with master shamans, Heaven and Charing present the core methods of plant shamanism used in healing rituals the world over: soul retrieval, spirit extraction, sin eating, and the Amazonian tradition of pusanga (love medicine). They explain the techniques shamans use to establish connections to plant spirits and provide practical exercises as well as a directory of traditional Amazonian and Caribbean healing plants and their common North American equivalents so readers can ex-plore the world of plant spirits and make allies of their own.

In a world filled with conflict, controversy, and confusion, Soul of the Seasons brings us a timely message based on an ancient medicine that is urgently needed in our modern, fast-paced lives. Through centuries of observation the sages of Five Element theory, a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, taught that the outer landscape of the natural world reveals much about the nature of our inner landscapes. Encoded within the five seasons of Spring, Summer, Harvest, Fall and Winter, lies a wisdom designed to create and support balance and harmony. The five fundamental elements of Five Element theory resonate in our bodies as the core emotions of Anger, Joy, Sympathy, Grief, and Fear. Like the working components of a fine clock they comprise an elegant system of continuous movement, growth, and transformation. Weaving her deeply personal stories with Five Element wisdom, Melody A Scout teaches us that by developing intimate relationships with our core emotions—the unique vibrations that connect us to both our bodies and the Earth—we can effectively adapt and respond to life’s challenges. By developing a more intimate relationship with the seasons of life, we can learn to effectively: identify and correct our imbalances; develop greater compassion, integrity, and honesty; and to authentically and appropriately express our emotions in ways that support our highest good. Soul of the Seasons offers the wisdom of a traditional model of health and harmony made current through practical and easily accessible language, soul-stirring exercises, and thoughtful questions. Encoded within the seasons of the natural world is a wisdom that teaches that: • Spring is the time to remember our visions, to set healthy boundaries, and make quality decisions. • Summer brings us warmth and joy through community, communication, and connection. • Harvest provides a sweet satisfaction for an abundant life and the capacity to nurture and be nurtured. • Fall teaches us the importance of letting go and to value and respect what is most precious to us. • Winter reminds us that contemplation, reflection, and rest are essential in the germination of new visions.

Touched by Nature is about the incredible healing power of plants. Just as their bodies are able to heal our bodies, as evidenced by the many successes of herbal medicine, so their spirit - or energy - offers much needed help to our spirits.This book is specifically about five-element based plant spirit medicine as developed by renowned international healer and teacher Eliot Cowan. Pip and Lucy trained with Eliot and have been practising the medicine since 2005. They see Plant Spirit Medicine as a very much needed medicine for our time and wanted to offer an accessible way into understanding its power and potential. Story telling offers that way. The book speaks in many voices, and it is a combination of narrative and description by the authors, as well as stories offered by colleagues, teachers, patients and students. The theme of the journey is used throughout: the journey of life which presents us with the challenges and struggles that call us toward the healing offered by deep nature connection; the journey of the seasons which encapsulates five-element understanding; journeys of personal healing and growth experienced from receiving the medicine; the shamanic dream journey in which humans can meet and interact with plant spirits directly through our imagination and beyond; the journey a person must undertake to become a healer and the part plant spirit medicine offers to play in the journey of our societies as we navigate this time of great imbalance and change, returning to a time when the songs and stories of the earth are once more able to be heard.
