Plant Spirit Medicine: The Healing Power of Plants ~ Eliot Cowan


This is a trailblazing book that explores an old way of healing through the spirit of plants! Eliot Cowen learned that it wasn’t the plant that healed a person, but the spirit in the plant. Learning to contact the spirit of the plant was to ask it directly to heal the person. This ancient practice of plant spirit medicine, long forgotten in the West, has now been remembered, revitalized and reintroduced by this American healer.

Enriched by the author’s many explorations since its first edition, this new edition unfolds as a series of chapters on how plant spirit medicine has resolved specific issues and imbalances in his own healing journey and in his work with others. Readers will learn from a wealth of stories and teachings how plant spirits can directly communicate with and aid us, including:

* Plant spirit medicine’s five-element view of healing

* Receiving guidance from plants, including those found within herbal preparations

* Questionnaires to assess our own states of health and balance

* New chapters on community and on such “controversial” sacred plants as peyote, marijuana, and tobacco

* Additional interviews with plant shamans of many traditions

Whether we live in a mountain cabin or a city loft, the gifts of the plant spirits present themselves everywhere. Plant Spirit Medicine opens our eyes and hearts to initiate and nourish this deepest of natural bonds.


Eliot Cowan is the founder of the Blue Deer Center in Margaretville, New York, where he provides training in Plant Spirit Medicine and other traditions. For many years, he apprenticed with the shaman Don Guadalupe Gonzalez Rios who, in 2000, ritually recognized Cowan as a guide to Shamanic apprentices in the Huichol tradition. He is a member of the Council of Elders for the Temple of Sacred Fire Healing. See bluedeer.org.
