Book Club - The Plant Spirit Familiar by Christopher Penczak

Just as people gain wisdom and experience healing with animal totems and guides, you can cultivate a similar relationship with the spirits of the plant world. Witches, shamans, and healers know about the intelligence, love, and power found within the herbs and trees, and learn to partner with them as totems and spirits guides. Witches have called such guiding spirits familiars, intermediaries between the worlds. The Plant Spirit Familiar is filled with herbal lore, rituals, meditations, and magick, but more importantly, it is an invitation to open the gateway to the Green World.

Learn about the three types of plant allies, the healing plants known as balms, the power plants known as banes, and the spirit teachers found in the wise old trees. Work with the Green Man and the Lady of Flowers and enter the Soul Garden. Create sacred space for healing, meditation, and shamanic journey, calling upon the plant spirits as guardian. Seek spiritual initiation from the plant world through ritual and sacrament. Deepen your spiritual connection with the Earth by growing roots strong within the land.

While taught from the perspective of nature-based spirituality rooted in the European traditions of magick, one does not need to be a Witch or Pagan to experience the blessings of the green world and The Plant Spirit Familiar. It is open to all seekers. You need only hear the call of the green, and answer it.

    I know this is inconvenient but I am gong to have to postpone this book club again as I won't be able to make it and was not able to find someone to step in and lead the conversation.

    Seriously, if I had a brain I would be dangerous! This is that day I was planning on hosting Beltaine. Would anyone mind if we switched locations to my place in La Mirda area so I can do both?

    You have an excellent brain, Kandy. It just has too much information all trying to compete for the same place.

    Is anyone really counting on that 7 pm time? We rarely have the book club that late in the evening.
