I feel blessed that my initial training was not only with live plants, but teachings on how plant spirit medicine works. Plants are complex, synergistic, intelligent macro communities that we are only just beginning to understand. This book, in its wonderful mix of science and poetry, brilliantly informs the reader of how this is possible, how to directly experience it themselves, and the implications to human society.
I recommend this book to students and professionals of herbalism, as well as anyone with a deeper interest in natural medicine. This book is easy to read and accessible to anyone.
In the East you need an acre per animal per the zoning, for a horse for example.
I wonder if our treatment plants are able to remove drugs with tertiary treatment, I wonder if we have double checked, and I wonder if we could find a way to prevent drugs from entering the soil thru septic system protections....????
If you think about herbal medicine, and requirements, you understand that it is easier to take a pill and forget your problem, but that appears to be part of the problem. There was a time when everyone thought, take a pill for everything, but now as I read this book, it appears that many of us are awakening to the facts of nature, and how to live more harmoniously with nature.
As a former teacher, I realize we teach the materialistic world, ignoring the world of plants and nature, as the author states, even the Native Indian children are losing the knowledge of the elders, and ....it is sad.
This is a book that holds your interest, and I know because I was reading a fictional adventure at the same time, and I have not finished it, in fact, I may not finish it, even with good reviews, it can not hold me, as this book did.
We have a responsibility to clean up the messes we are making and this book is a good start to awareness. Just this past week the EPA regulated again, with distance from dry streams, being increased....instead of doing something about actually cleaning up the effluent.
I intend to read other books by this author, his style of writing is good, he is interesting and I love learning from him.
This week I read about a symposium of scientists who are talking about meshing materialistic science with non matierialistic science for a better view of what the world actually is....Great New...
