MAGIC MEDICINE: Homeopathy as Shamanism
Homeopathy involves an intimate relationship to spirit, a formal way of communicating with natural energy to heal on every level – spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical. While they may not shake rattles or pound drums, homeopaths are trained and adept at choosing the force in nature that will produce a profound healing for an individual.
Homeopathic medicines contain the power of the natural world inside deceptively simple pills or tinctures. Meet the kingdoms from which remedies are sourced – animal, plant, and mineral – and the unique signature of each. Explore the potent secret of the vital force – the energy that enables all living things to self-heal. Discover how homeopaths map the natural world in order to find the correct medicine, out of the 5000 possibilities, for each person. Appreciate homeopathy as energy medicine and the most ecological medicine on the planet.
