Reveals the use of direct perception in understanding Nature, medicinal plants, and the healing of human disease • Explores the techniques used by indigenous and Western peoples to learn directly from the plants themselves, including those of Henry David Thoreau, Goethe, and Masanobu Fukuoka, author of The One Straw Revolution • Contains leading-edge information on the heart as an organ of perception All ancient and indigenous peoples insisted their knowledge of plant medicines came from the plants themselves and not through trial-and-error experimentation. Less well known is that many Western peoples made this same assertion. There are, in fact, two modes of cognition available to all human beings--the brain-based linear and the heart-based holistic. The heart-centered mode of perception can be exceptionally accurate and detailed in its information gathering capacities if, as indigenous and ancient peoples asserted, the heart’s ability as an organ of perception is developed. Author Stephen Harrod Buhner explores this second mode of perception in great detail through the work of numerous remarkable people, from Luther Burbank, who cultivated the majority of food plants we now take for granted, to the great German poet and scientist Goethe and his studies of the metamorphosis of plants. Buhner explores the commonalities among these individuals in their approach to learning from the plant world and outlines the specific steps involved. Readers will gain the tools necessary to gather information directly from the heart of Nature, to directly learn the medicinal uses of plants, to engage in diagnosis of disease, and to understand the soul-making process that such deep connection with the world engenders.

Esta enciclopedia magistral sobre la mitología antigua, los rituales, el simbolismo y los misterios arcanos de todos los tiempos —un clásico de la literatura mundial desde 1928 y, probablemente, el compendio de ciencia oculta más completo jamás escrito—, se pone por primera vez al alcance del lector español en una magnífica traducción. Como ningún otro libro del siglo xx, Las enseñanzas secretas de todos los tiempos es un códice legendario sobre las antiguas tradiciones ocultas y esotéricas del mundo. Los centenares de temas que trata alumbran con una luz poco común algunos de los aspectos más fascinantes y mejor guardados de los mitos, las religiones y las filosofías que resuenan desde la antigüedad hasta el presente. Y es que aunque se hayan escrito numerosos volúmenes sobre estas cuestiones, las verdades eternas de la vida, al igual que muchos de los más grandes pensadores, han quedado envueltos en tinieblas. Esta obra pretende ser digno de aquellos sabios y sus enseñanzas. Con más de un centenar de dibujos y un cuadernillo de dieciséis magníficas láminas a color, los estudiosos de la sabiduría oculta, los símbolos antiguos y las prácticas arcanas valorarán la obra de Hall por encima de cualquier otra de su género y disfrutarán de ella por lo que es: uno de los textos fundamentales y fundacionales del pasado siglo. Un verdadero tesoro.

The first in-depth examination of the sacred underpinnings of the world of Native American medicinal herbalism • Reveals how shamans and healers “talk” with plants to discover their medicinal properties • Includes the prayers and medicine songs associated with each of the plants examined • By the author of The Secret Teachings of Plants As humans evolved on Earth they used plants for everything imaginable--food, weapons, baskets, clothes, shelter, and medicine. Indigenous peoples the world over have been able to gather knowledge of plant uses by communicating directly with plants and honoring the sacred relationship between themselves and the plant world. In Sacred Plant Medicine Stephen Harrod Buhner looks at the long-standing relationship between indigenous peoples and plants and examines the techniques and states of mind these cultures use to communicate with the plant world. He explores the sacred dimension of plant and human interactions and the territory where plants are an expression of Spirit. For each healing plant described in the book, Buhner presents medicinal uses, preparatory guidelines, and ceremonial elements such as prayers and medicine songs associated with its use.

A manual for opening the doors of perception and directly engaging the intelligence of the Natural World • Provides exercises to directly perceive and interact with the complex, living, self-organizing being that is Gaia • Reveals that every life form on Earth is highly intelligent and communicative • Examines the ecological function of invasive plants, bacterial resistance to antibiotics, psychotropic plants and fungi, and the human species In Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm, Stephen Harrod Buhner reveals that all life forms on Earth possess intelligence, language, a sense of I and not I, and the capacity to dream. He shows that by consciously opening the doors of perception, we can reconnect with the living intelligences in Nature as kindred beings, become again wild scientists, nondomesticated explorers of a Gaian world just as Goethe, Barbara McClintock, James Lovelock, and others have done. For as Einstein commented, “We cannot solve the problems facing us by using the same kind of thinking that created them.” Buhner explains how to use analogical thinking and imaginal perception to directly experience the inherent meanings that flow through the world, that are expressed from each living form that surrounds us, and to directly initiate communication in return. He delves deeply into the ecological function of invasive plants, bacterial resistance to antibiotics, psychotropic plants and fungi, and, most importantly, the human species itself. He shows that human beings are not a plague on the planet, they have a specific ecological function as important to Gaia as that of plants and bacteria. Buhner shows that the capacity for depth connection and meaning-filled communication with the living world is inherent in every human being. It is as natural as breathing, as the beating of our own hearts, as our own desire for intimacy and love. We can change how we think and in so doing begin to address the difficulties of our times.

Cómo mantener los niveles óptimos de testosterona en el hombre mediante el uso de hierbas, suplementos nutricionales y la alimentación • Revela pruebas científicas sobre agentes ambientales que bloquean la testosterona y que alteran el funcionamiento químico del cuerpo masculino en la medida en que este envejece • Presenta medicinas herbarias orgánicas y seguras que pueden restablecer los niveles óptimos de testosterona • Contiene los tratamientos naturales más recientes para tratar la impotencia, la infertilidad y las disfunciones de próstata La identificación de la andropausia, la etapa que ocurre durante la madurez en los hombres y que es comparable a la menopausia femenina, se ve obstaculizada por la falta de una clara manifestación externa en la química y fisiología propias de los individuos de edad avanzada. Los hombres son capaces de fecundar más allá de la edad madura. Sin embargo, su deseo y potencia sexual varían, a menudo de acuerdo con su nivel de testosterona. Estudios recientes muestran que los bajos niveles de testosterona prevalentes en varones de edad avanzada--un descenso gradual que es bastante normal--se ven agravados por elementos del medio ambiente. Pero, como indican investigaciones médicas recientes, la terapia de reemplazo de testosterona con dosis bajas de la hormona no es una opción adecuada porque aumenta el riesgo de problemas cardiovasculares como el infarto del miocardio o derrames cerebrales y, además, porque el cuerpo puede hacerse dependiente de la testosterona farmacéutica y dejar de producirla por sí mismo. En esto libro, Stephen Harrod Buhner muestra por qué los hombres necesitan ayuda para mantener los niveles de testosterona a medida en que envejecen y explica cómo fitoandrógenos naturales--plantas medicinales que contienen hormonas masculinas--pueden corregir sin riesgos la disminución de testosterona que ejerce el medio ambiente. Buhner detalla cómo funciona cada fitoandrógeno, cuándo puede usarse y el método más apropiado de empleo, de forma que proporcione a todos los hombres medios seguros, naturales y eficaces que conserven sus niveles óptimos de testosterona hasta bien entrada la tercera edad.

These Tibetan Buddhist teachings provide instructions for gathering and harnessing basic life energy. According to the tradition, a very effective way to do this is to arouse sexual energy and to direct the essence of that energy toward spiritual realization. According to the philosophy, sexual energy brings one naturally and effortlessly into flow with creativity and awareness in both mind and body—when used skillfully by committed practitioners with appropriate training. These ancient texts, attributed to the great Tibetan meditation master Padmasambhava (who practiced sexual union with the famous Tibetan queen Yeshe Tsogyal), offer traditional Buddhist teachings on the nature of the elements that all beings and our world are made of. They show us a practical view of how to use life-energy for personal development. The teachings are for experienced Buddhist practitioners.

The Epic of Gilgamesh, the Teachings of Siduri and How Siduri's Ancient Advice Can Help Guide Us to a Happier Life, Third Edition

Across the span of recorded history, at the birth of writing and civilization, there was the Epic of Gilgamesh. This seminal tale of gods, kings, battles, friendship, loss, the fear of death, the search for immortality and advice on how one should live life, represents our first complete work of literature. While the origin of the Epic of Gilgamesh is lost to the sands of time, it is probable that this story had been verbally transmitted for a very long time before the invention of writing, but we have no way of knowing when, where or why the story actually originated or even how many original contributors there were. What we do know is that the story encompassed a large number of concepts, ideas and philosophies, and was considered important enough that it was told from generation to generation for hundreds of years, before being immortalized in clay around four thousand years ago. Unfortunately, the original "Old Babylonian" version of the Epic of Gilgamesh is incomplete, making it difficult for us to piece together the exact story our ancient ancestors considered so important. However, several critical fragments of the original Epic have been recovered and differ in significant ways from later more complete versions. One of the most fascinating of these original fragments is the Sippar tablet which was discovered near the city of Sippar, on the Euphrates river, upstream of the Babylonian region in present day Iraq. The Sippar tablet contains the earliest recorded advice, given by a beautiful young girl called Siduri, on how we should live our lives. Interestingly, in a later version of the Epic of Gilgamesh (referred to as the "Akkadian" version) Siduri's advice was removed from the Epic and much of her original role was given to Utnapishtim, an immortal wise old man. One theory for the diminishment of Siduri's role is that Siduri being young, female and working class (a wine maker), and Utnapishtim being old, male and high class (an immortal wise man) may have contributed, and may suggest possible differences between Sumerian and Akkadian culture. Specifically, this change may highlight a degree of ageism, sexism and/or classism in Akkadian culture, and the removal of Siduri's advice could represent the first recorded case of censorship. Siduri's words were recorded long before any other religious text, including the Bible, the Koran or any eastern philosophies (including Buddhism) and represent a very different perspective to the religious texts used today. Siduri was pro-wine, pro-feasting, pro-music, pro-dancing, pro-joy, pro-sex and pro-family. Wouldn't the world be a better place if more people today would heed Siduri's ancient advice? In this book I have re-introduced Siduri's teachings, and the original Old Babylonian fragments into the Epic of Gilgamesh, while using the later Akkadian text to fill in the gaps in the original story. I have tried to remain faithful to the original events, concepts and philosophies our ancient ancestors found so important. I have also included a discussion of Siduri's teachings and how we can, if we so wish, live our lives according to Siduri's original ancient advice. In this updated Third Edition I have re-written the Akkadian prose to more closely resemble the shortened poetic verse of the Old Babylonian texts, added additional analysis of the rest of the Epic and included a new section at the end of the book that contains various informative discussions, from multiple contributors, regarding Siduri's philosophies and underlying concepts within the Epic of Gilgamesh. Discussions of Siduri and her philosophies are included in a few very short chapters at the beginning of the book, analysis of the rest of the Epic is incorporated into Chapter 6, the complete text for the Epic of Gilgamesh is contained within Chapters 7 to 9, and Chapter 10 contains the epilogue and the new multiple contributor discussions section.

A medida que las limitaciones de los tratamientos convencionales se han ido haciendo más evidentes, las propuestas alternativas y complementarias a la salud y a la medicina se han ido extendiendo cada vez más. Anatomía holística presenta un estudio anatómico, fisiológico y patológico bien documentado del cuerpo humano, al tiempo que amplía el tema vinculando la ciencia del organismo con una variedad de modalidades alternativas a fin de examinar cómo los seres humanos existen e interactúan en su entorno y experimentan la existencia en términos emocionales y espirituales. En el libro, la terminología con base científica y las descripciones detalladas se entrelazan con múltiples observaciones, a veces humorísticas, así como hechos e ideas, todos ellos relacionados con la vida. En él se examinan los mecanismos, la estructura y las funciones del organismo, y se contempla cómo todo ello se relaciona con conceptos energéticos, emociones y principios ecológicos. La primera mitad está dedicada a la anatomía básica y a la fisiología, mientras que la segunda se centra en los modelos de salud y enfermedad, tanto tradicionales como holísticos, y aborda temas como la patología occidental, la salud emocional, la medicina de los cinco elementos y las causas espirituales de la enfermedad.
