What is Plant Spirit Medicine?

Plant Spirit Medicine touches the deepest part of your soul and restores your body, mind, and spirit into harmony and balance. You have spent your life up until now creating many experiences that might have brought on illness, stress, depression, physical problems, emotional and spiritual disconnection, and other conditions.  It can take a while for the plants to touch all of your life's experiences and bring balance to your body, mind and spirit. It is like peeling a spiritual onion. Each life experience may have many layers to it.

Plant Spirit Medicine calls on the use of Five Element Chinese Theory, Household Shamanism, and connection to the Plant Spirits.  Just as an aloe vera plant might help to soothe a burn, the spirit of a plant can help to soothe your spirit. Plant Spirit Medicine treats you at your core essence and works it way out into your spirit, mind and body. Treating symptoms is not the purpose of Plant Spirit Medicine, yet symptoms can and often do get addressed.

The five elements are Earth, Metal, Water, Wood, and Fire. Each person has a divine aspect of each of the five elements. You also have one of the five that seems to resonate more than the others. This is an aspect of your core essence and your ability to heal.

If you want to learn more about Plant Spirit Medicine, I suggest that you read the book by Teacher/Author Eliot Cowan titled Plant Spirit Medicine. Eliot Cowan and Alison Gayek also teach a Plant Spirit Medicine Practitioner Training Course that I highly recommend. The experience of this class alone will deeply impact your life.
