The Green Mysteries: An Occult Herbarium
Daniel A. Schulke, Images by Benjamin A. Vierling
First edition of this complete lexicon of the spiritual, magical and occult properties of plants, limited to 1500 hardcover copies of which this is number 692. Containing more than 400 individual entries, this occult herbal focuses especially upon plant power as an emanation of spirit, and how herbs are utilized in the active practices of magic and ritual. It includes trees and herbs from the Americas as well as native European plants familiar to students of the Western Esoteric Tradition. A monumental product of over twenty five years of experiential research, this work is more than a mere collation of previously existing works on plants, much of the material is drawn directly from the author's private field notes, diaries, and manuals of magical operation from 1991-2016, presented in an engaging narrative style.
