Traditional Shamanic and Neo-Shamanic Plant-Spirit Healing Practices
Indigenous healers around the world attribute the
medicinal powers of plants to the spirits of the plants rather than their physical properties. Traditional shamanic and healing practitioners may consider relationships with plants to be necessary for their medicinal use to be effective, and as a result may spend their lifetimes cultivating connections and relationships with plants. This presentation will explore indigenous and modern ideas and methods for plant-spirit healing, and how these ideas may have value and meaning for us today.
