FROM THE PUBLISHER:
The discipline of Occult Herbalism encompasses the knowledge and use of the magical, spiritual, and folkloric dimensions of plants. This perennial wisdom animates many global spiritual traditions, especially those which have maintained their integrity of transmission even in the face of industrial development and cultural destruction. Often concealed within the deepest strata of the Western Esoteric Traditions, this green strand of wisdom, though obscured, is a potent legacy of all magic, sorcery, and occult science. In addition to the hard sciences of botany, ethnology, agriculture and ethnopharmacology, a number of pathways can assist the magical herbalist in furthering the depth of understanding and integrity of personal approach. Thirteen Pathways of Occult Herbalism circumscribes the metaparadigm of herbal magical practice, providing useful examples of its manifestation, as well as demonstrating its time-honored routes of inquiry.
Concealed in the depth of the Western Esoteric Traditions, there is a Green Strand of Wisdom, and though obscured, it is a potent source and legacy for all magic and sorcery, and encompasses the knowledge and use of the magical, spiritual, and folkloric dimensions of plants. In addition to the exoteric sciences of botany, ethnology, agriculture and ethno pharmacology, there are a number of hidden pathways that can assist the magical herbalist and practitioner in furthering their depth of understanding. THIRTEEN PATHS OF OCCULT HERBALISM examines the ways in which this specialized knowledge can be acquired, and is based on a perennial wisdom that animates many of the world’s spiritual traditions, especially those that have been able to maintain a firm lineage over the centuries. Eleven illustrations by Benjamin Vierling. 144 pages. Octavo.
