As humans evolved on Earth they used plants for everything imaginable – food, weapons, baskets, clothes, shelter, and medicine. Indigenous peoples the world over have been able to gather knowledge of plant uses by communicating directly with plants and honoring the sacred relationship between themselves and the plant world. Because they locate their consciousness in the heart, they are able to use the intelligence of the heart to merge their consciousness with the consciousness of any living organism.

In Sacred Plant Medicine Stephen Harrod Buhner looks at the longstanding relationship between indigenous peoples and plants and examines the techniques these cultures use to communicate with the plant world. He explores the sacred dimension of plant and human interactions – a territory where humans experience communications from plants as expressions of Spirit. For each healing plant described in the book, he presents medicinal uses, preparatory guidelines, and ceremonial elements such as prayers and medicine songs associated with the use of the plant.

Praise for Sacred Plant Medicine

“The first in-depth analysis of the processes used by Native Americans to communicate with the plant world for the purpose of healing human illness. It is a work long overdue by an author who himself ‘talks’ with plants as Native Americans have always done.”

William S. Lyon, author of The Encyclopedia of Native American Healing and Black Elk: The Sacred Ways of a Lakota

“Buhner articulates the sacred underpinnings of the herbal world and deep ecology as only a real ‘green man’ can.”

David Hoffman, author of Medical Herbalism
