Plant Healer's Path by Jesse Wolf Hardin

The Plant Healer’s Path:
A Grassroots Guide For The HerbFolk Tribe

by Jesse Wolf Hardin
with Kiva Rose
plus David Hoffman, Paul Bergner, Phyllis Light, Rebecca Altman & Roger Wicke

 Featuring topics vital to an effective, empowered herbal practice, including many never addressed before, with suggestions for taking control of and enjoying our lives, and tips that can benefit herbalists and non-herbalists alike.  You’ll open the book up to an overview of herbalism’s history and celebration of its lineage and tribe, with your last look as you close the cover being an unflinching vision of the near and distant future of this vital field.  It is a past that we can learn from and feel rooted in… and a future we are each called to help make.

“That which was suppressed is back. The wise women and crazy men, in all their multicultural diversity, are finding their voices. Even if the monolith of the dominant culture is ignorant of this, finally we are listening to each other.  The Herbalist’s Path is the clearest description yet of this truly grassroots manifestation of herbalism – of humanity’s re-connection with healing nature and the wild.”
–David Hoffman (Author of Medical Herbalism)

“To be an herbalist is a lot more than just knowing some herbs and what they are ‘good for.’ It is a path of passion, enchantment and commitment and sometimes disillusionment. Whether just beginning or already walking the path, this book provides a panoramic road map of the terrain – both internal and external – for any person called to healing with plants… with thought-provoking essays on the issues most important to our work.”
–Paul Bergner (Herbalist & Teacher)

The Plant Healer’s Path is a veritable cultivator’s guide for growing our practice and our community, our awareness and purpose, satisfaction and bliss.
304 pages, 8.5×11” B&W, with over 100 photos & art illustrations

Medicine Bear by Jesse Wolf Hardin – www.MedicineBear.com

 

The Medicine Bear

An Historical Novel of Healing, Adventure & Love in the Enchanted Southwest

by Jesse Wolf Hardin

Follow the wild-woman herbalist and Omen, the impassioned writer and adventurer Eland and archetypal Medicine Bear through a time of great cultural as well as personal transition, down plant-filled paths of discovery and healing and to the juncture of our own return to wholeness and health, rooted home and true love, meaningful mission and – ultimately – satisfaction and contentment.

“The Medicine Bear is an unabashedly magical, sensual, and yes, romantic tale of love and loss, of longing and renewal. It is a paean to wildness within and the southwestern wilderness that Eland and Omen are married to, along with each other, and whose exquisite beauty we are drawn into through the soulful eyes and language of Eland. The plants, the mountains, and the medicine bear sing to us, calling us each to full aliveness. While the old west is fading and the grizzlies are dying, love inspires, even beyond death itself.  Plants and trees are intertwined with the lives of the main characters in the Medicine Bear. Actually, they are main characters. Green healers such as Moonwort, sage, rose, evening primrose, and the alder tree are lushly brought to life by the animated vision and words of Eland, and by his loving observations of Omen, the herbalist healer at her work. They and the plants are free creatures, expressing themselves, and interconnecting as an integral part of the landscape in which they live and thrive (and in the humans’ case, learning to express their new found sense of wholeness). There is so much plant lore and wisdom shared in the book, along with hints at how to gather and work with herbs, that the Medicine Bear is a pleasure for herbalists to read, and offers an inspiring education for those who long to become more intimate with healing plants.”
–Robin Rose Bennett 

“Jesse Wolf has a depth and breadth of insight, and a true writer’s touch for bringing it to life. I hope other people will read this novel and understand the world that he sustains… and hears, in the Medicine Bear’s rumble.  A book of herbal teaching, healing, loss, love, and love of the land… a remarkable treasure of words… a jewel of a story!”
–Virginia Adi (Herbalist, RN, SingerSongwriter)

“If you have ever loved, healed or been healed, bemoaned a changing society, and felt the animal spirit within you, this tale is for you.”
                               –Charles Garcia (Curandero)
