Reviews

"We are fortunate that she has chosen to share her wisdom with us all. This beautiful, magical, wonderful book is a re-initiation of teachings from the plants themselves that are essential for the very survival of our species. Carole Guyett is a modern shaman, an inspiration!" * John Perkins, author of Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, Shapeshifting, and The World Is As You D *
"Carole's deep love and understanding of plants shines through every page of this book. She provides fascinating insights into the power of the plants--if we open our minds to listen. We are fortunate that she has chosen to share her wisdom with us all." * Penelope Ody, author of The Complete Medicinal Herbal *
"Carole's clear instructions, along with her loving encouragement for personal creative additions, are designed to guide the readers into how to have their own uniquely valuable, magical, and practical plant experiences. Plants are indeed our elders and teachers, and this book will help any sincere seeker to reawaken to their own true nature, and that is the most healing gift of all." * Robin Rose Bennett, herbalist and author of The Gift of Healing Herbs and Healing Magic *
"An extraordinary, inspirational, and highly practical guide to exploring the spiritual realms of plants and opening gateways to healing and transformation. Carole gives a whole new meaning to `plant diets' and beautifully describes how journeying into the inner world of plants gives you a sense of oneness with everything in creation. This is the perfect book for anyone wishing to deepen their connection to the plant world." * Anne McIntyre, medical herbalist, Ayurvedic practitioner, and author of The Ayurveda Bible *
"Bravo! Sacred Plant Initiations gives readers a unique perspective in working with plants and discovering their generous gifts. The plant dieting ceremonies Carole describes are inspiring, informative, and provide a clear lens into an original and sacred means of communion with nature. The knowledge shared in this book is vast and indispensable to anyone studying plants or seeking healing and transformation." * Nicki Scully, author of Power Animal Meditations,Alchemical Healing, and Planetary Healing *
"Groundbreaking, inspiring, and destined to become a classic. Carole Guyett's approach is grounded, original, and practical. She takes the reader deep into an understanding of the spiritual character of plants and their associated spirits. Sacred Plant Initiations is an important step forward in healing our relationship with nature and restoring balance to our beautiful planet. A beautiful book." * William Bloom, Ph.D., author of The Power of the New Spirituality and Working with Angels *
"I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in cross-communication between humans and other species. The simplicity and the wisdom speak for themselves as does the inherent charm in Carole's style." * Judith Hoad, herbalist, vibrational medicine practitioner, and author of Healing with Herbs *
"A beautifully written book, full of deep insights and concrete and practical instructions to become a modern-times plant alchemist. As you read it, you'll feel the doors of a magical world open, a world of interconnectedness, healing, and joy that we all remember and long for. Carole's expertise and love guide us to recognize that plants are a part of us, and when we relate to them with reverence we reawaken parts of our soul, realizing that this is, indeed, what they truly are." * Esperide Ananas, healer and author of Music of the Plants *
"Sometimes a book comes along that is an answer to a personal prayer. Sacred Plant Initiations is such a book. For several years, I've wanted to engage in a sacred plant ceremony with a traditional psychoactive plant, a master plant such as ayahuasca, for insights, connection, spiritual growth. Yet, it is illegal to ingest those substances in the United States and traveling to South America, where it is legal, is not possible. Sacred Plant Initiations opens a doorway for myself and others to commune with ordinary, nonpsychoactive plants we have around. Guyett has written an elegant and loving homage to the plant world, and explained thoroughly and simply how humans can come into relationship with it. You can read it and safely plant diet as a complete novice, alone or in a group -- something not possible with plants like ayahuasca or peyote. Sacred Plant Initiations is an invitation to the healing the plant world wants to do, and which it knows we so desperately need." * Spiral Nature, Susan Starr, March 2016 *
"...Sacred Plant Initiations reminds us that we don't need to travel half way around the world to drink strange and wonderful jungle brews to have a deep and life-changing experience from working with plants. All we need to do is look outside our window and we will see that there are many friends waving to us from the garden, gently encouraging us to come on over and meet them face to face, so that they may share their lives and secrets with us." * Indie Shaman, David Farrell, April 2015 *
