Visionary Plant Consciousness: The Shamanic Teachings of the Plant World Edited by J.P. Harpignies
Visionary Plant Consciousness explores how the “vegetable mind” can affect the human condition. Twenty-three leading ethnobotanists, anthropologists, medical researchers and cultural and religious figures present their understandings, including the late Terence McKenna, Dr. Andrew Weil, Wade Davis, Michael Pollan, Alex Grey, Jeremy Narby and Kat Harrison. They reveal that these plants may help us access the profound intelligence in nature—the “mind of nature”—that we must learn to understand in order to survive our eco-logically destructive way of life.
“This book seeks to inform Westerners about these powerful plants and the shamans who know how to use them. Their words are clear and simple and often based on personal experience. The result is an accessible book packed with knowledge.” — Jeremy Narby, author, The Cosmic Serpent
