What is Plant Spirit Medicine?

Plant Spirit Medicine recognizes that plants have spirit and that spirit is the strongest medicine. Spirit can heal the deepest reaches of the heart and soul. Since the beginning of time, when the traditional shaman-healer turned to the plant world, he turned to the spirits of the plants to heal his patients. The spirits were his friends, teachers, and allies. This forgotten ancient practice was reintroduced by Eliot Cowan, Teague's teacher, healer, and shaman.

Plant Spirit Medicine healers call upon the extraordinary healing power of the plant spirits. Plant Spirit Medicine differs from many forms of herbalism in the importance it places on the relationship between the plants, the healer, and the client. Plant Spirit Medicine healers look at the whole person, seeing all they have to offer, leaving judgment and criticism behind. Only by seeing a person in this way can we come to the root of a person’s imbalance and use the appropriate plants to provide them with what they need for body, mind, and spirit health.

With Plant Spirit Medicine, we return the person to balance and harmony, to their greatest sense of themselves. Our ancestors lived an existence with no illusion of separation from nature. Plant Spirit Medicine restores us to this state of grace. The result is a deeply effective and elegant form of healing.
