Lucy Wells and Pip Waller’s book “Touched by Nature: Plant Spirit Medicine Journeys” is about the incredible healing power of plants. Just as their bodies are able to heal our bodies, as evidenced by the many successes of herbal medicine, so their spirit – or energy – offers much needed help to our spirits.
Their book is specifically about five-element based plant spirit medicine as developed by renowned international healer and teacher Eliot Cowan. Pip and Lucy trained with Eliot and have been practising the medicine since 2005.
They see Plant Spirit Medicine as a very much needed medicine for our time and wanted to offer an accessible way into understanding its power and potential; storytelling offers that way. Their book speaks in many voices, and it is a combination of narrative and description by the authors, as well as stories offered by colleagues, teachers, patients and students.
