      All ancient and indigenous peoples insisted their knowledge of plant medicines came from the plants themselves and not through trial and error experimentation. Less well known is that many Western peoples made this same assertion. There are, in fact, two modes of cognition available to all human beings - the brain-based linear and the heart-based holistic. The heart-centred mode of perception can be exceptionally accurate and detailed in its information gathering capacities if, as indigenous and ancient peoples asserted, the heart's ability as an organ of perception is developed. Steven Harrod Buhner explores this second mode of perception in great detail through the work of numerous remarkable people from Luther Burbank, who cultivated the majority of food plants we now take for granted, to the great German poet and scientist Goethe and his studies of the metamorphosis of plants. Buhner explores the commonalties among these individuals in their approach to learning from the plant world and outlines the specific steps involved.

      an extraordinary book, 1 April 2007
      By  (uk) -
      (REAL NAME)   
      this is an incredibly full book about a lost art - direct communication with nature.

      in section one buhner looks at the scientific documentation of the neural activity of the heart and the non-linear aspects of nature. in section two he takes a more poetic and practical approach to opening your perception of nature using the heart.

      an incredibly liberating book - the exercises are wonderful and can have extraordinary effects in reopening you to the world we live in.

      a rich, dense experience of a book written from lived experience that repays a long slow relationship with it.

      highly recommended
