One of just 26 signed and hand-lettered special deluxe editions of Becoming Vegetalista, bound in high-quality natural leather-style cloth and hand-stitched. The deluxe edition also contains an exclusive extra story.

Plants are some of the oldest spiritual teachers that human beings have known. Native cultures have insisted for centuries that their knowledge of plant medicines were given them in dreams and visions by the plants themselves. For millennia spiritual adepts throughout Asian cultures have learned at the feet of plants. Within those lineages plants are considered to be some of the most subtle teachers for those on the ecstatic journey. Those that follow such a path are what some call vegetalistas.

Stephen has been exploring this dimension of human relation with plants for over 40 years. This new work, Becoming Vegetalista: Veriditas and the Journey to the Self, is the fourth in a series that began with Sacred Plant Medicine, continued with the award-winning Lost Language of Plants, then The Secret Teachings of Plants, and ended most recently with Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm.

'Reading Becoming Vegetalista is a deeply moving and sweetly healing experience. Buhner's language is fluid and alive, evoking the feeling of something luminous moving through your body and inviting a rare intimacy. There is a warm authenticity to this book that inspires hope. It is an invitation to experience the world in a way that is simultaneously ancient and new.'

- Sean Donahue

'Stephen Buhner is one of the plant geniuses of our time.'

- Rosemary Gladstar

A standard edition of the book is also available.
