A comprehensive herbal, listing common herbs as well as wild plants of North America, it is based on Loren Cruden’s lifetime of work with Earth-based spiritual practices. _Medicine Grove_ includes chapters on gathering wild herbs, finding plant allies in the wilderness, and using herbs in shamanic ceremonies.

Covering topics such as vision quests, consciousness-altering, and the special connections between certain herbs and totem animals, _Medicine Grove_ brings the herbal into sacred territory. LOREN CRUDEN leads shamanic workshops and sweat lodge ceremonies throughout the Northwest. She is the author of _The Spirit of Place_, _Coyote’s Council Fire_, and _Compass of the Heart_.
