I am a psychotherapist. Although traditionally trained, I'm drawn to holistic means of healing the psyche. I agree with another reviewer, that this book is not just about plant spirit medicine. It is much bigger than that. To me it is about all healing and about being in relationship with one's self, plant spirits, others, All That Is. Unlike the other reviewer, this book proved to be much greater and more wonderful than I expected. I was deeply moved by it, finding myself tearful at times. It profoundly resonated for me. In my opinion Cowan has tremendous depth and truly gets what's going on. He really speaks to the heart. If you're looking for a herbal recipe book "use this herb for this ailment", you'll be disappointed. If you want to get a strong sense of the loving & amazing power of plant spirits to assist our healing, you won't be able to put it down. I read many books on personal growth and healing. This is one of the best books I've read in a very long time.

Plants...domestic and not domestic. As the native american person looks at life he sees family members. Spirits occupy all that has life. The eagle has a spirit. Horses have nations...spiritual colonies. Trees have a spiritual family structure. California White Sage...there is a spirit who represents that plant. Eliot Cowan patiently waited and meditated and communed with particular plant spirits. It is not uncommon. It is uncommon for someone outside the native american society to even want to do what Eliot did. It isnt something that one can do on a four day vision quest. Just the knowledge of the fact that spirits do exist in plants, should make us more aware of the giant redwood trees. And the whales and sharks...as all of life has spirit. Even you.

Eliot Cowan's book is both beautiful and inspiring. I couldn't put it down. Anyone interested in spirit, healing, shamanism, and realizing our potential to be in sacred relationship with all of nature will find this book a blessing.

Buy this book and read it. It is an amazing and powerful experience. I read it three times in a row and soaked up more and more with each reading. This book turned me on to Shamanism, but as I went off and read more about Shamanism, I discovered that nothing else was quite as clear, powerful, or sincere as Eliot Cowan's book. Don't take my word for it, read it for yourself!
