Healing, Plant Magic, Tree Calendar

• With practical recipes of ancient cures and healing methods
• Including the most important healing and magical plants and trees of the Celts

The Celts used to be the prevalent culture in large parts of Europe for almost a thousand years. Even though druidism was destroyed, ordinary people clang to the wisdom of yore and passed it on in words and practice through proverbs, fairy tales, legends, seasonal rituals, and particularly through herb knowledge and folk medicine. The author introduces us to healing practices that do not focus on healing agents, but on the magical powers of plants. He presents the most important healing and magical plants and trees of the Celts in their seasonal and cultural context, in folk medicine, and in witchcraft, while also explaining the meaning of the Celtic annual circle and tree calendar. Along the eight Celtic annual celebrations and related rituals, he leads us through the annual cycle and shows us how to tune into the big rhythms of nature even in this day and age. With many practical recipes for ancient medicines and healing practices.
