Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Julia Graves grew up in Germany in close communion with nature. She trained in anthroposophic massage therapy, herbalism, and medicine from an early age. Julia has traveled around the globe, from Northern America to the Himalayas, to study the relevance of the doctrine of signatures in the world. She is a practicing herbalist, maker of flower essences, and a naturopathic doctor. Julia organized a naturopathic relief clinic in response to the 2010 earthquake in Haiti and presently lives on her farm in a remote area of France.
Die hilfreichsten Kundenrezensionen auf Amazon.com (beta)
It discusses the theoretical and historical aspects of the subject and then gives detailed explanations to the codes of Nature. It teaches how to attune to them and how to read their meaning thus getting closer to the spirit of each plant. The book encourages and inspires the reader to use his senses, imagination and intuition rather than relying solely on theoretical book-oriented knowledge.
This book gives an ancient yet a fresh point of view of the art of healing with plants
It is highly recommended to both herbalists who look for the art and spirit of their trade, and to all plant lovers seeking to explore the wisdom of plant kingdom.
I treasure this book!
Standing out refreshingly from a lot of recent books that say little with many words, this concise work is profoundly creative and sparks the creativity not only in herbalist and plant lovers, but in anyone who dares to flip its pages! Not asking the reader to labor hard to follow, instead it is empowering: Julia Graves delivers the necessary tools for becoming masters of the language of plants into our hands and says "see how easy it is, and you can do it, too!".
Compared to all the literature on the topic, what is striking about The Language of Plants is that it effortlessly clads the issue in truly holistic thinking and never falls prey to the kind of naturopathic / alternative reductionism so fashionable in our times. Alive and breathing, dripping with practical experience, no part of this book seems dry or mechanical. I know of no other book that does not just list one signature per plant, but hands us the key to read ever single of its characteristics as a signature. While structured in an encyclopedia fashion, The Language of Plants is graced with many anecdotes and thoroughly entertaining. It stretched my notion of this topic to a whole new horizon.
