Of the approximately 300,000 plants that have evolved on Earth, at least one tenth of them have been used in traditional herbal medicine or as local remedies. More recently, the application of science has proven the effectiveness of many of these plants, and enabled us to develop important medicines, often in the form of single isolated plant compounds. This fascinating and beautifully presented book explores these compounds and the plants that produce them, and how they have transformed the lives of countless people. The book is organised by body system and type of condition, which are illustrated with examples of compounds used to treat them and the plants that they are found in. Many of these plants have a long history of use that has been investigated, so their mechanism of action can be explained, as well as their role within the plants themselves.

"The road in life forks in every moment, with one path leading toward confusion, separateness, and entanglement, and the other toward clarity, connection, and mental freedom. With mind whispering, the choice can be ours."
Why sometimes do even the smallest events send us into a downward spiral? Whether we're aware of it or not, our feelings and outlook are constantly shaped by learned patterns, or habitual modes of being. These have the power to dictate our sense of wellbeing and our very perceptions of our lives and the world around us. These modes--distinct orchestrations of how we think and feel, how we act and interact--can open us up to delight and wisdom or preoccupy us with fear and despair, driving and distorting our experiences like invisible puppeteers of the mind.

A hands-on guide to advanced spiritual transformation through the combined sacred arts of alchemy and shamanism Offering a unique, hands-on guide to advanced self-transformation, James Endredy shows how traditional shamanic techniques offer a doorway into the sacred art of alchemy, the inner transformation of the soul. Revealing the practical and intuitive connections between shamanism and alchemy, including not only Western alchemy but also alchemical practices from the East, Endredy recasts the 7 stages of the alchemical "Great Work" as a transformative shamanic journey and initiatic experience. He provides step-by-step instructions for 18 shamanic alchemy practices for inner transformation, including vibrational energy work, consciousness-altering techniques, the creation of mirrors of the mind, shamanic viewing, and sacred ceremonies tied to the four elements. Exploring the healing art of spagyrics, the author shows how this alchemical plant-medicine practice is receptive to the energetic work of traditional shamanic techniques. He details formulations for distilling shamanic spagyric remedies, as well as recipes for basic tinctures and "plant-stones." He also discusses the creation of sacred space, altars, and shamanic distillation lodges. Comparing shamanic and alchemical cosmologies, the author explains how both shamanism and alchemy employ direct experience of the numinous and invisible worlds, also known as gnosis, to impart wisdom, invoke peace of mind, and increase creativity and vitality. Showing how the practical vibrational science of alchemy and the consciousness-transforming techniques of shamanism directly enhance and expand upon each other, Endredy also reveals how they have the same ultimate goals: to allow the practitioner to transmute spiritual lead into gold and to penetrate the deep secrets of life and of nature.

Translated by the eminent Taoist Master Alfred Huang, The Complete I Chinghas been praised by scholars and new students of the I Ching since its first edition. A native Chinese speaker, Master Huang first translated the original ideograms of the I Ching into contemporary Chinese and then into English, bringing forth the intuitive meanings embodied in the images of the I Ching and imbuing his translation with an accuracy and authenticity not possible in other English translations. However, what makes his translation truly definitive is his return to prominence of the Ten Wings, the commentaries by Confucius that are essential to the I Ching's insights. This 10th anniversary edition offers a thorough introduction to the history of the I Ching, how to use it, and several new divination methods; in-depth and easy-to-reference translations of each hexagram name, description, and pictogram; and discussions of the interrelations between the hexagrams and the spiritual meaning of their sequence.

Geometric symbols and signs have been drawn on the body to enhance strength and courage and stimulate the body's powers of self-healing since prehistoric times - the most ancient evidence being the 5,000-year-old iceman "OEtzi," found in the Alps in 1991 who had symbols tattooed over his arthritic joints. Found in indigenous societies around the globe, symbols on the body - whether drawn, painted or tattooed - act as energy antennae, triggering healing impulses in the energy body and meridian system. Exploring several simple methods of working with symbols for physical, emotional and spiritual healing, Petra Neumayer and Roswitha Stark illustrate the key symbols used in this practice and reveal how to select the proper symbol or symbols for your condition. They explain how to use these signs directly on areas of pain and injury - from mosquito bites to eczema - for quick relief, on bandages to speed healing and on acupressure points and meridians to treat more complex conditions. They explore the use of symbols to reduce scar tissue, counteract electromagnetic pollution, balance the chakras and cleanse toxins from the body. The authors explain how, like homoeopathic remedies, symbols transfer information through energetic vibration and morphic fields - the resonance between all living things, past and present, discovered by Cambridge biologist, Rupert Sheldrake. They detail how to transfer the energy of a symbol to water, food, jewellry or stones for long-term treatment and prevention. They, also, show how to heal animals and plants with symbols. Bringing together traditional Chinese medicine, quantum physics, dowsing and homoeopathy, this new yet ancient practice harnesses the power of symbols to initiate healing at the very foundation of our energetic being. * Explains how to make symbols directly on areas of pain for quick relief, on bandages to speed healing and on acupressure points for energy and emotional work * Explores the use of symbols to reduce scar tissue, counteract electromagnetic pollution, balance the chakras and cleanse toxins from the body * Details how to transfer the energy of a symbol to water, food, jewellry or stones for long-term treatment and prevention
