A shaman is one who walks in two worlds, one seen easily by everyone, another seen with the senses of the heart, deep recesses of the mind, and within the collective spiritual consciousness.
Shamanic Gardening integrates sustainable ancient and traditional gardening methods with shamanic principles and modern permaculture. The practices, history, myths, recipes, and philosophies inside this book will enhance your relationship with nature, sustain the earth, delight your senses, and nourish your soul.
Shamanic Gardening includes a cultural history of sustainable gardening, including gardening techniques used by Cleopatra, the Japanese, The Pueblo Indians, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, and many others.
This book teaches both simple and advanced techniques to garden with more awareness and effectiveness, using your inner senses. Learn to design an elegant, edible, sustainable landscape, plant for nutrition and beauty, grow healing herbs and aphrodisiacs, work with earth energies and color, extract flower essences, and much more.
Melinda Joy Miller is a feng shui master, cultural anthropologist, medicine woman, and Keeper of the Medicine Wheel of Peace teachings of the Senecas. She has been practicing and teaching permaculture techniques and shamanic healing for over thirty years.

What a unique approach to permaculture and gardening! This book is more like a wise sage helping you with your spiritual growth, health with TONS of tips for healthy teas, beauty regimes to turn your home into a spa, the nutritional breakdown with historical notes for every edible you can imagine, like what to take during the flu season from your garden or herbs from Africa that I have never heard of before! Then there are the incredible amounts in info on basic and advanced gardening....how to make your own healty soil, or how to plant indoors and outdoors without any soil at all to keep watering to a minimum....or what plants like to grow together (companion gardening). I will be using this book for a lifetime. The resources are incredible, it's a fun read which seems like it comes from the author's heart, and pleasing to the eye.
