Since 1995, copies of Eliot Cowan's small-press phenom-enon 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insightful! Eliot Cowan takes his readers on a journey though the world of plant spirits and the medicine they can provide. His approach is a little different than other authors. He does not provide the reader with a step by step approach. Instead he takes the reader through his journey towards learning what plant spirits have to offer by recounting his experiences, what he has learned from his various teachers, and what he has learned from the plants themselves. This book provides a slightly different approach to plant spirit medicine than this reader has touched on before. The journey into learning this kind of medicine is long and takes much dedication, understanding, but it does provide a unique perspective on plant spirits and their connection to us and the world around us. I would recommend this book to read even if plant spirit medicine is not the path you are on. It still has much to offer.
