Books on plant communication are becoming quite frequent now. However I know that this one is worth paying close attention to, because it has a foreword by Pam Montgomery, author of Plant Spirit Healing, plus an endorsement from eminent herbalist Rosemary Gladstar. This step-by-step guide opens us up to receiving the wisdom and healing gifts of plants, and the author includes chapters on specific plants like yarrow, plantain, mugwort and rosemary, which are all familiar to plant lovers on these shores. There are 16 plants and trees in total. Every chapter also has an exercise which is not specific to the plant featured in that chapter. This isn’t a book of recipes and remedies but it’s actually deeper than that; there are stories throughout and guidance on the overall character of each plant so that we can intuitively decide which to cultivate.
