Book Review – Thirteen Pathways of Occult Herbalism

It took me 353 days to read this book because the text is so poetical, so full of rich imagery, and so difficult for the mind to take in. It is full of allegorical descriptions that require serious contemplation, and more than a few re-readings paragraph by paragraph. Schulke has returned the reader to the roots of the mysterious symbiosis between plant and Man. As much as men have cultivated plants for their society, so have plants cultivated us in return through the ages.
The reader is invited to deepen their knowledge of plant lore by entering into a state of gnosis from the plants themselves. They have been the teachers of the human race since the dawn of our time, and bestow their knowledge in both mystical, biological and chemical means. In Thirteen Pathways of Occult Herbalism, we are asked to return to the tutelage that Nature provides, and seek the wisdom of the plant kingdom in all its hidden glory.
