Our discussion is with Bardic PHILOSOPHER Stephen Harrod Buhner, author of Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm: Beyond the Doors of Perception into the Dreaming of the Earth and at least 19 other books related to transcending the shortcomings of the linear, reductionist, corporate world view
Stephen Harrod Buhner is a tireless advocate for the reincorporation of the exploratory artist, independent scholar, amateur naturalist, and citizen scientist in American society - especially as a counterweight to the influence of corporate science and technology.
Like Rudolf Steiner before him, Stephen Harrod Buhner is a student of Goethe's natural history work. Again, like Steiner, who gained insights into spiritual realm of Nature through the undomesticated herb gatherer Felix Cogutzki he met on a train at the age of 21, Stephen was initiated into the non-linear, non-academic perception of nature that preceded the industrial mindset through his great grandfather, C.G. Harrod a botanical physician.
Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm is the fourth in a series that began, long ago, with Sacred Plant Medicine , and which includes The Lost Language of Plants and The Secret Teachings of Plants ). All of these books contribute to developing sensibilities important to the biodynamic farming practitioner and attempt to teach the reader how to escape an anthropogenic world view.
