Living in Balance: Ancestral Meditation Medicine (Isma'el Jamal) (1999)
What exactly does a Shaman do and believe? Brother Jamal explains that as an herbal metaphysician he uses herbs to heal people. The herb has a soul, spirit, and a body like humans. In fact according to the shaman philosophy, herbs possess cosmic consciousness and the reason why animals and people gain cosmic consciousness is because we eat and use the herbs.
He recommends books to read more about plant spirits. Brother Jamal explains the concept of "plant spirit teacher allies." A shaman will read someone's energy to figure what family of minerals, plants, color, herb, etc is allied with a spirit. Georgia and Brother Jamal talk about meditation, dance, zombies, and more.
