The Healing Power of Plants

Eliot Cowan, the founder of
Plant Spirit Medicine

What is Plant Spirit Medicine?

Plant Spirit Medicine is the shamans’ way with plants. It recognizes that plants have spirit and that spirit is the strongest medicine. Spirit can heal the deepest reaches of the heart and soul.

Since the beginning of time, when the traditional shaman-healer turned to the plant world, he turned to the spirits of the plants. It was the spirits of the plants that healed his patients. The spirits were his friends, his teachers, and his allies.

This ancient practice, long forgotten in the West, has now been remembered, revitalized, and reintroduced by American healer and shaman, Eliot Cowan and has proved as effective in today’s world as in times past. Read more

Coming April, 2014: The New Edition of Plant Spirit Medicine

Revised_PSM_Book_Cover-150by Eliot Cowan

With a new introduction, a new conclusion, 5 brand new chapters and significant edits to the remaining chapters.

“Plant spirit medicine works partially because it has broad perspective. It does not look only through the eyes of physics and chemistry; it sees human beings as expressions of divine natural forces. It plumbs the human mind and emotions. It gives paramount importance to spirit, the mysterious core of our lives.”
