Présentation de l'éditeur

The first in-depth examination of the sacred underpinnings of the world of Native American medicinal herbalism

• Reveals how shamans and healers “talk” with plants to discover their medicinal properties

• Includes the prayers and medicine songs associated with each of the plants examined

• By the author of The Secret Teachings of Plants

As humans evolved on Earth they used plants for everything imaginable--food, weapons, baskets, clothes, shelter, and medicine. Indigenous peoples the world over have been able to gather knowledge of plant uses by communicating directly with plants and honoring the sacred relationship between themselves and the plant world.

In Sacred Plant Medicine Stephen Harrod Buhner looks at the long-standing relationship between indigenous peoples and plants and examines the techniques and states of mind these cultures use to communicate with the plant world. He explores the sacred dimension of plant and human interactions and the territory where plants are an expression of Spirit. For each healing plant described in the book, Buhner presents medicinal uses, preparatory guidelines, and ceremonial elements such as prayers and medicine songs associated with its use.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 a wonderful book! 9 avril 2007
Par reader - Publié sur
In Sacred Plant Medicine, Stephen Buhner explores the processes whereby indigenous peoples throughout the world learned the use of plant medicines. The book is a sensitive and deep look at an uncommon subject, the sacredness of plants within indigenous cosmologies, how those plants interacted with human beings, and how human beings made relationship with them in order to learn their medicinal and spiritual uses. Indigenous peoples were clear, and Buhner's first hand accounts bear this out, they did not learn the uses of plant medicines through trial and error but directly from the plants themselves. This book is an important companion to Buhner's other books: Lost Language of Plants, and The Secret Teachings of Plants. Each of them look at the intelligence of Nature, especially that of plants, in close detail, each from a different perspective. Sacred Plant Medicine develops a map of the territory of plant intelligence and the human interaction with it by focusing on the earliest and most basic human form of that contact between differing intelligences. Lost Language of Plants approaches it from a look at the deep ecological interactions of plant chemicals as one specific language of plant communication, Secret Teachings explores the heart as the specific organ of cognition behind understanding plant and Nature contact and communication. All three books are essential, this one is a delight. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Exactly what I was looking for 13 avril 2011

It took me years to start to find the kinds of books and material I have wanted to pursue. If you don't have a personal contact with a medicine man or shaman in a traditional earth based tribe, I think this is you best way to access material that is quickly being lost to humankind. I hope more people will read this kind of material to help safe the Earth and our relationship with it before it is too late.

If you are looking for information on what plants to use for what benefits, ailments, etc. this is an ok book. But I'm still trying to understand who the target audience is thought to be. You do have some information on plants here. But it's a mismash with a bunch of other stuff. Some of the info is good. But in other cases there are things like talking about a concoction for the birth of the first child. You should never, ever think about giving plant remedies to pregnant mothers unless you have been trained/apprenticed to an elder for many years. Then, closely after this, is another story/anecdote about what to do when a woman cannot vomit. Again, we are jumping into more advanced cases that may give people ideas about what they can/should do when they have no mentor nor much experience in this area. This is a bit dangerous. Plants are powerful, in many cases more powerful than prescription medicines. But giving people ideas about dabbling is over the top. These are examples of info that would have been better left out of the book.

At other times the book becomes unfocused from plants even veering off course to talk about pipe carriers and many other things not related to the title. You can learn about EM fields and so on but that info does not really help you understand plants. Later we hear about Edward O. Wilson and the Gaia theory. Ok, nice to know. But this is an example of the wide wandering this book gets into which can be distracting if you already know about these theories/concepts. If you want to stay heads down on plants then you may become frustrated.

So the book is many things and ok for plants but I don't feel that there is a guiding voice of an authentic elder who knows what to mention and what to leave out. The topics range far and wide and for that you need much active filtering to realize when the author has run you into a side-branch away from the knowledge you are looking for.

If you've read about Black Elk, Crazy Horse, most anything by Ed McGaa (Eagle Man), Tom Brown Jr, then you already know the native views somewhat. If you are looking for a Native American Materia Medica, it is not clearly developed here. You would be better starting somewhere else like Plant Spirit Shamanism: Traditional Techniques for Healing the Soul (which is more about working with plants rather than this wide ranging book under review), or Plants of Power: Native American Ceremony and the Use of Sacred Plants (which actually lists plants and what they are good for). This book (Plants of Power) is really the BEST place to start if you already know about Gaia and Native American culture in general.

For a wider background/survey of plants then the more conventional guidebooks like A Field Guide to Medicinal Plants and Herbs: Of Eastern and Central North America (Peterson Field Guides) or Medicinal Plants of North America: A Field Guide (Falcon Guides).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 fascinating and remarkable 9 janvier 2010

My husband is very scientific with a strong interest in native cultures and moral philosophy. Sometimes books disappoint him when they're too generic or fluffy. This book did not dissappoint. It was very informative and interesting. The author knows what he's talking about and stands up for what he believes in. It was especially cool that we live by the Rocky Mountains and there are several specific references to the plants in this region.

This is a good book- and of course, only a start. I like reviews that tell me similar books, or other books on the same path, so I'll do that here. Wisdom of the Earth, by Barry Kapp, goes into similar ideas. Amazon doesn't have it in stock, though. There Are No Incurable Diseases: Dr. Schulze's 30-Day Cleansing & Detoxification Program, School of Natural HealingHerbal Home Health Care, Herbal Healing for Women, Complete Medicinal Herbal (Natural care) can round this out, on the herbal side. For the Shamanic side, The Physics of Miracles: Tapping in to the Field of Consciousness Potential The Future Is Yours: Do Something About It! There is a Sufi story about moths, and the only moth that really understands the candle is the one who gives himself totally to the light, and the light gives itself to him. This applies to shamanic work. Shamanic techniques work from the larger self, especially in service to others. Shamanism means working with the subconscious, and at times superconscious minds. It cannot be apprehended by the conscious mind, the ego. Without service, many things just don't work, or work only slightly. Whispers of the Ancients: Native Tales for Teaching and Healing in Our Time gives you some idea of how very different native storytelling is, and stories shape the Universe. Indigenous life, for which these techniques go hand in glove, can be approximated from Journey to the Ancestral Self: The Native Lifeway Guide to Living in Harmony With Earth Mother, Book 1 (Bk.1) These are very good basic books, to getting out of the box of Western culture, into the much more fascinating 7 worlds of the spiritual traveller. Wong Kiew Kit's books on Chi Kung show how ideas like this survive in Chinese culture, and Chinese Herbal medicine has aspects very similar to these. Joseph Murphy The Power of Your Subconscious Mind (Revised) can help in understanding this. Healing For The Millions, by King, would also help. The other reviews are accurate, so I won't repeat what they say.
