Becoming The Enchanted Healer

Becoming The Enchanted Healer

BECOMING THE ENCHANTED HEALER by Kiva Rose “The Enchanted Healer” is the second in our trilogy of books for herbalists and other natural Healers.  While the previous “Plant Healer’s Path” focused on education and empowerment, this second volume is all about heightened physical senses, awareness, plant spirit, Gaia and ecocentric spirituality, magic, enchantment and enjoyment for the Herbalist and other Healers and healthcare providers.  It’s our very first all-color book, with the evocative color paintings and photographs assisting its mission to enchant and inspire.  Quoting Jesse Wolf: “As important as clinical research is to a healing practice, just as important is the child-like curiosity, entrancement and obsession that leads to fruitful investigation...

Muscle Aches and Tension: Materia Medica, Part II

Muscle Aches and Tension: Materia Medica, Part II

Muscle Aches and Tension: Materia Medica, Part II by Kiva Rose   (This is part two of three in the Muscle Aches and Tension series, you can part one on internal therapeutics right here) The most effective and nuanced external treatment of muscle aches and tension requires a basic knowledge of energetics and differential diagnostics. Don’t be intimidated though, all you need is a simple understanding of a few basic patterns and you’ll be to apply your herbal knowledge with a great deal more subtlety and precision. I have omitted potentially toxic or mind altering herbs from this list post, and hope to cover low dose external botanicals at some point in the future. Please don’t allow the pain relief of herbs to fool you into thinking you’re totally healed...

A Holistic View of Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism, & ADHD

A Holistic View of Asperger’s Syndrome, Autism, & ADHD

Asperger’s and Autism are much misunderstood conditions, featuring brain and behavioral patterns that are abnormal but in some ways more interesting and advantageous.  The problem for anyone dealing with this condition, is finding the healthiest ways of functioning in this society without dissing one’s true nature, gifts and needs.  Asperger’s has made things difficult for my partner Kiva Rose when it comes to social interaction, but has also helped to make her the unique and admirable person she is.  The following is an eye-opening look at this topic from our friend and ally Katja Swift, excerpted from a longer version found in the Winter issue of Plant Healer Magazine.  You can learn about the herbal courses being offered in the Boston area by...
