Review quote

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 which is the healing power behind our relationship with the plant world. This book is an excellent addition to the alternative medicine collections." Malidoma Some, author of Ritual: Power, Healing and Community and 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"show more
