Tribal shamans earned powerful status as spiritual leaders and liaisons between plants and the spirit world.
Dating back to the Stone Age, plant spirit shamanism survives in the folklore, rituals and spiritual teachings of all traditional healers—from the Curanderos of the Amazon and the folk healers of Europe to present-day homeopathic and flower essence practitioners and herbalists. These traditional healers believe that the beginnings of disease originate from an imbalance or disharmony in our emotional and spiritual bodes and that plants are effective in healing these bodies.
For those of us who strive to regain our ancient and instinctual relationship to our plant allies, these shamanic teachings can help bring us back to our sacred relationship to plants and to the Earth who so graciously provides these medicines.
