Dr. Coder has produced by far the best and most honest manual to help people maximize the benefits of visionary plant experiences and deals realistically with the impact and limitations of ceremonies. While acknowledging and applauding the incredible breakthroughs and insights that happen in sessions, she lays out a series of alternatives to extend and deepen the lessons that arise from the often confusing inner landscapes that one encounters. I am grateful to be able to recommend this important follow up for anyone doing ceremonies and for individuals at any level of training who are offering or guiding others. This guidebook is a necessity. James Fadiman, The Psychedelic Explorer's GuideAn insightful and comprehensive guide that assists explorers on the visionary plant medicine path to better understand and integrate the complexities of their journeys and move forward with greater clarity and wisdom. Highly recommended.Shonagh Home, Shamanic Therapist, Author and PoetA ubiquitous hunger for wholeness, purpose and meaning is accelerating the demand for Plant Spirit Medicines around the world. But the same conditions that drive this hunger mean most Westerners are ill equipped to manage and integrate the peak experiences occasioned by these powerful substances. Coder's guidebook provides a welcomed anecdote to the common misconception that Plant Spirit Medicines are a shortcut to healing. Through careful study and personal experience, she skillfully impresses upon us that deep and sustainable emotional healing is a process requiring courage, fortitude, and most of all effort. This practical guidebook is a must read for those considering or currently using Plant Spirit Medicine in their healing journeys.Dr. Gerald Thomas, Collaborating Scientist, Centre for Addiction Research of BCKatherine, the author of this book, is incredibly knowledgable in this realm of plant medicine.
