Product description

Review

"In this revelatory new book, we are brought into the presence of gifted storytellers in three different forms: a scientist, traditional plant practitioners, and the plants themselves. Gagliano's discoveries uproot assumptions about the plant world as insensate, revealing their capacities to listen, learn and remember. This is a compelling story of discovery at many levels, simultaneously personal, scientific, and spiritual. It will change the way you see the world."
--Dr. Robin Wall Kimmerer, SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor, director of the Center for Native Peoples and the Environment, and author of Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants

"Beautifully written and thought provoking, this book brings to light the relationship of an accomplished evolutionary ecologist deeply rooted in Western science and culture, and some plant species, which guide her through dreams and visions with the support of indigenous wise women and men. An inspiration for those willing to listen to the many voices of nature, living as we are in an animated intelligent world we are rapidly destroying."
--Luis Eduardo Luna, author of Vegetalismo: Shamanism Among the Mestizo Population of the Peruvian Amazon, and co-author of Ayahuasca Visions: The Religious Iconography of a Peruvian Shaman

"In part guided by indigenous shamans, in part by the author's own cultivated receptivity, Gagliano dives into isolation with various plant species which have been recognized as having strong voices that humans can hear. She consults with plants that give specific instructions about how to prove botanical consciousness in both the seen and unseen worlds."
--Kathleen Harrison, MA, ethnobotanist, Botanical Dimensions

"Those who wish to see how a shamanic approach can help advance the
scientific understanding of plants need to read this wonderful book.
Monica Gagliano opens up new frontiers and her methods deserve broad
attention."
--Jeremy Narby, PhD, author of The Cosmic Serpent

"A cure for biases and preconceptions. An antidote to tunnel vision. A book that reverberates well after you've laid it down. Gagliano's brave disclosures, both professional and personal, transcend plants. Thus Spoke the Plant is about them, if only through the author's out-of-the-box way of listening to plants. As in a pairing of food and wine that blurs the boundaries between the ingredients, you will not think of science and intuitions as detached anymore. Thus spoke Gagliano."
--Professor Paco Calvo, director of the Minimal Intelligence Lab (MINT Lab) at the University of Murcia, Spain
