Plant Spirit Medicine

“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 is one name for a shaman’s way with plants. This practice was rediscovered in the West by Eliot Cowan, author of the book Plant Spirit Medicine and a fully initiated shaman (Tsaurirrikame) in the Huichol Indian tradition.

Plant Spirit Medicine is a form of energy medicine. It calls upon the extraordinary healing power of plant spirits to find the source of a person’s imbalance, and provide them what they most fundamentally need. This holistic practice results in a deeply effective and profound form of healing that works on the body, mind & spirit, enlivening people and helping them find happiness with their lives.

Effectiveness:

Plant Spirit Medicine has something for everyone. The plant spirits have an enormous capacity to touch a person’s being on a very deep level, slipping past accumulated layers of defensiveness or fear so that the most necessary healing can happen. The effects of Plant Spirit Medicine are unique to each person, but what it offers all of us is a deeper knowing of ourselves and the peace, joy and healing that that brings.

"Plant spirit medicine works partially because it has a 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."  Eliot Cowan

Sessions:

The process begins with a thorough interview including a review of your health concerns, health history, and a brief physical examination to help determine how best to help you. Your first appointment typically takes between 2 to 2 1/2 hours.

Follow-up sessions take about one hour. For the first month or two, follow-up sessions will most likely be scheduled weekly, but as your healing progresses, the time between sessions is lengthened.

“With Plant Spirit Medicine, we enter the dream of nature in order to restore ourselves to harmony and balance. Our ancestors lived their lives in this dream of nature—an existence in which there is no illusion of separation from nature. What we need is an opening to the memory of who we are. Plant Spirit Medicine restores us to this state of grace, which is our birthright.”  Eliot Cowan
