“Without doing battle, without making the disease the enemy, the spirits of nature have offered to bring us out of the dream of strife into the dream of wholeness.”— Eliot Cowan
Plant Spirit Medicine healers call upon the extraordinary healing power of the plant spirits. Plant Spirit Medicine differs from many forms of herbalism in the importance it places on the relationship between the plants, the healer and the client. PSM healers look at the whole person, seeing all they have to offer, leaving judgment and criticism behind. Only by seeing a person in this way can we come to the root of a person’s imbalance and use the appropriate plants to provide them with what they need for health in their body, mind, and spirit. The result is a deeply effective, deeply elegant form of healing.
With Plant Spirit Medicine, we return the person to balance and harmony, to their greatest sense of themselves. Our ancestors lived this way – an existence in which there is no illusion of separation from nature. Plant Spirit Medicine restores us to this state of grace.
