Viridis Genii Series 6, Vol 1 ~Book on Green Spirit & World of Plants
200 pages of unique and in depth knowledge... This book presents select titles from featured presenters at the 6th annual Viridis Genii Symposium, an exceptional herbal conference focusing on the ethnobotany of plant magic.
"The Viridis Genii is the green spirit, the intelligence and life force that is both hidden and revealed. It is the animating force of the wild wood and the depths of the sea. It shrouds us; it engulfs us with its veiled green mist that awakens the heartbeat that delivers fecundity to the earth, the very essence of life. It is the Green Gnosis one receives from their deep connection and communion with the genus loci. Deep within these mysteries we find magic, we find myth, we find doorways, pathways, and keys, which allow us to enter the heavens and other worlds as well as guide us through the chthonic realms."
