ABOUT THE BOOK

The natural currents, material and energetic, which secure our ongoing prosperity renew themselves through cosmic cycles and the passing of the seasons. Our distant ancestors were aware of this fact and adapted their uses of plants – be they medicinal, ritual, or otherwise – to enable a careful coexistence with the natural world. The alienation of modern society from nature and its avaricious exploitation of natural resources have had devastating effects on us and our environment. The purpose of this book is to reawaken the knowledge and wisdom of our predecessors and return them to the local communities from which they originate, in order to preserve our priceless natural and cultural heritage for generations to come.
