The Secret Teachings of Plants book and 3 CD set
Reveals the use of direct perception in understanding Nature, medicinal plants, and the healing of human disease.
Explores the techniques used by indigenous and Western peoples to learn directly from the plants themselves, including those of Henry David Thoreau, Goethe, and Masanobu Fukuoka, author of The One Straw Revolution.
Contains leading-edge information on the heart as an organ of perception
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-centered 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
Join Stephen and explore the living communictions that come from plants, place, disease, organisms, our bodies and our ability to receive and understand them through the second mode of cognition that all people possess. The intensive will focus on the heart as an organ of perception, the nature and territory of meaning, the five steps of direct perceptions, depth diagnosis of disease, the nonlinearity of Nature, differentation perception from projection, the mundus imaginalis, reading the text of the world and much more.
