Sacred Plant Medicine: The Wisdom in Native American Herbalism

by Stephen Harrod Buhner Author

In this exploration of Native American herbalism, author Stephen Harrod Buhner dives into the connections between spirituality, environment, and culture, and shows the reader how various Native American cultures communicate with plants. Buhner discusses the techniques that shamans and healers use to 'talk' directly to a plant in order to discover its medicinal properties. Part reference volume for budding herbalists and part spiritual exploration, Buhner has included medicinal uses, preparatory guidelines, and ceremonial elements such as prayers and medicine songs associated with each plant.
