Dream Divination Plants: In Northwestern European Traditions

by Corinne Boyer Author

In this fascinating investigation into the connection between plants and the spiritual power of dreams, author Corinne Boyer investigates the ways in which cultures in Northwestern Europe made and make use of herbs to bring about prophetic or symbolic dreams. Looking back at the history of pagan traditions and Wiccan practice in this part of the world, Boyer compiles an account of the kinds of herbs used to turn the simple act of dreaming into a mode of divination. For those interested in the practice of divination and seeking new ways to gain insight into the future, Boyer's volume may be eye opening and offer the reader new ways of thinking (and dreaming!) about the future.
