|INTRODUCTION TO A
PAGAN PHILOSOPHY OF HERBS
(The following was compiled from several sources on the Web.)
"Magick". They have been the primary source of medicines for people of
every culture and were considered magickal or spiritual by many of them. An
ancient earth based spiritual belief system concerning herbs appears in many ancient
cultures and civilizations such as Celtic, Chinese, India, and Native American
philosophies just to name a few. Their religious beliefs shaped their view and
relationship with the Great Spirit, and the relationships between their citizens.
This was a belief system which also demonstrated a wholistic view of illness, and utilized
herbs according to religious belief.
The art and
science of herbal medicine is, for many people, the realization that we are ALL A PART OF
GAIA. - The Earth. We teach that The Earth is a living entity with senses,
intelligence, memory and the capacity to act.
To Summarize: Witchcraft is the Natural way of looking at the Earth and all its inhabiatants. Herbcrafting is the Natural way of helping to keep the balance.
