Touched by Nature

Every plant has a spirit, and every spirit has a story to share, and every story offers widsom and knowledge . . .

You become part of those stories every time you walk through the woods or stroll through a meadow . . .

. . .every time you take a breath of spring air or gather wood for your winter fires. 

The knowledge and wisdom is all around us. It’s simply a matter of letting it . . .


. . .touch our hearts.

Pip Waller and Lucy Wells


Touched by Nature



The Book. . .

Touched by Nature is a book about the medicine of the plant spirits told through many different voices and stories.

It is a medicine that can deeply change our lives and help us troubled humans rejoin the great web of nature, moving us closer to greater balance and harmony.

“It is an inspirational read and shouts out joyously about this much needed and timely medicine for our world today.”

Julie Woods

“A truly magical book. The plant spirits will step out of the pages to inspire you on your healing journey!”

Lucy Harmer

“This book is a window on a way of engaging with the world that is very ancient and very needed at this time.”

Michael Vertolli

plant spirit medicine

Plant spirit medicine recognises that plants have spirit, that spirit is the strongest medicine and that spirit can heal the deepest reaches of our heart and soul.


Eliot Cowan

Our teacher and author of the seminal book Plant Spirit Medicine is Eliot Cowan. He is a healer, teacher, ceremonial leader and fully initiated elder shaman (Tsauririkame) in the Huichol tradition.

He is the founder of the Blue Deer Center in upstate New York, a home for ancestral wisdom and plant spirit medicine.


Sacred fires

Sitting with fire is an ancient time honoured human practice. Experiencing the sacred is about connecting with something larger than ourselves.

The sacred fire community is a global network of people bringing a sense of the sacred back into our world.
