I'm very excited to share this book with anyone interested in it. It details and lays out many of my personal practices with plant medicines, and teaches you everything necessary to communicate with plant spirits. Most of the material in the book is based on ancient shamanic practices I learned in the Andes and the Amazon while staying with and studying under tribal shaman, but from my own perspective, and with my own spin. While I draw heavily from traditional practices, my practice is eclectic and based more on what seems to work best then what is strictly traditional.
This book teaches the reader about the different plant medicines, how to prepare them for use, how to invoke their spirits, how to work with them for healing, how to perform successful dieta, how to protect yourself in ceremony, and much more. A lot of this information I have never seen in any book before, and all of it is based on my personal experience.
With this book, there is enough information for someone to copy the elements of my practice which make sense to them, and enough information to help people find their own path, spirit guides and techniques from that starting point. The beauty of the plant spirits is that once you connect with them, they can show you anything you need to know, including how to meet other spirit guides, how to heal yourself and others, how to enter the spirit world, how to find your path in life, and how to be a good person. With the plants, anything is possible.
