The Secret Teachings of Plants: The Intelligence of the Heart in the Direct Perception of Nature

Region: Northeast
Location: Anywhere in the world


Ancient and indigenous peoples have insisted their knowledge of plant medicines came from the plants themselves, perceived through a heart-centered mode of perception, not through trial-and-error experimentation. Author Stephen Harrod Buhner explores this heart-centered mode of perception through the work of numerous remarkable people, from Luther Burbank, who cultivated most of the food plants we now take for granted, to the great German poet and scientist Goethe and his studies of the metamorphosis of plants. Readers will learn to gather information directly from the heart of Nature, the medicinal uses of plants, and to understand the process that such deep connection with the world engenders.
