This book is a fascinating exploration of the methods by which Indigenous and Western peoples learned directly from the very plants they came to know. Buhner focuses on the heart as an organ of perception. The heart-centered method of perception is proposed, if developed and honed, to accurately gather information as indigenous peoples have consistently claimed. Buhner explores what is common among these individuals in their approach to learning from the plant world and outlines the specific steps involved so that the reader might gain these tools and learn from them.
