Summary

“A beautiful blend of folklore, botanical science, acquired wisdom, and spiritual guidance.” —from the foreword by Luisah Teish   “If you want to learn about the reciprocal spiritual connection between humans and trees, you’re going to love this beautiful book.” —Tess Whitehurst, author of The Magic of Trees   Reclaiming traditional botanical and herbal practices has never been more important than it is today. So much of our future depends on our ability to use ancient earth knowledge. In this crucially important book, author Stephanie Rose Bird recounts the story of the sacred wood: how to live in it, learn from it, and derive spiritual enrichment from it, as well as how to preserve and protect it. The Healing Tree offers functional, accessible recipes, remedies, and rituals derived from a variety of African and African American traditions to serve mind, body, soul, and spirit.The Healing Tree celebrates the forest: its powers, spirits, magic, medicine, and mysteries. Bird shares how trees have provided her with personal healing, then allows us to share in that process for our own benefit. Bird’s book follows her own personal journey, but Africa is always her touchstone—the persistent and tenacious ancestral mother wisdom and spiritual foundation that refuses to fade away. The Healing Tree preserves this knowledge, presenting it as relevant and viable and demonstrating in intimate detail how vestiges of that knowledge took root in the Western Hemisphere, in African American culture, and more broadly in American culture in general.   Previously published as A Healing Grove, this updated edition includes a new preface by the author and a source guide for the botanicals discussed within.

    Is your child still experiencing the misery of wetting the bed? There are many reasons for bed wetting, so check out with your medical practitioner that there is no underlying medical cause. If there is not, this gentle, relaxing program for children aged about 6-9 years old could be your answer, as it has been for so many others! The recording boosts confidence and self-esteem and helps to change their negative beliefs and expectations of failure. The child receives powerful suggestions that they can take control even when asleep! Children relax comfortably and vividly imagine locking up their bladder with a big colorful key. They stand a sentry on guard to wake them up if they need the bathroom, otherwise the bladder can stretch and stay shut until the morning. This successful approach is based on natural, safe, sound hypnotherapy principles: act out each positive step in the imagination and dramatically increase your chance of success in the real world. The recording uses state of the art technology. Lynda's gentle, English voice calms and re-assures as she gives suggestions for boosting confidence and self esteem. As a former teacher and Clinical Hypnotherapist of many years standing, she has helped thousands of children world-wide through her audio-books. She has been featured in the press, TV and radio, and is the author of two widely acclaimed books on hypnotherapy for children and adults. For maximum benefit, listen nightly, for several weeks and follow the recommendations. Regular listening is the key to success!
