Spirit Medicine is a form of doing healing work with plants,
but not plants as objects or chemical factories—but
as spirit beings, alive and feeling and wise and connected
to the world around them, and to us."
— Eliot Cowan
Spirit Medicine is a form of spiritual healing which
combines the traditions of ancient Chinese Five Element medicine
and the indigenous practice of using plant spirits for healing.
It is a spiritual healing technique that has its roots in
ancestral traditions, and though it has been largely forgotten
in our society, it has been practiced in one form or another
by medicine people around the world throughout time.
many other plant based healing modalities, in Plant Spirit
Medicine no part of the physical plant is used or administered,
but rather the spirit of the plant is called upon and it offers
Spirit Medicine treatments over time, not only re-awaken and
fortify our connection with Spirit and with the natural world,
but through reaching into the deepest layers of a person,
the plants bring balance and support to our core. Over time,
and from that deep place, the healing grows and unfolds into
a blossoming that reaches up through the layers of years of
complexity and compensation, establishing harmony and wellbeing
throughout the entire system. Over and over again, I have
experienced and seen this ancient medicine bring deep healing,
upliftment and transformation to all areas of a persons life,
as it carries us away from feeling separate and into a life
of wholeness, flow and joy.

"I have a mind to confuse things, unite them, make them
new-born, mix them up, undress them, until all light in the
world has the oneness of the ocean, a generous, vast wholeness,
a crackling, living fragrance."
