“The thesis of this book is the interconnectedness of all nature, human and plant kingdoms, and the underlying connection of a first principle which unites everything and from which and to which everything returns. We shall go on to discuss the four elements and humours and how the planets weave these differing energies through the vegetable and animal kingdoms which show us how Spirit is expressed in the plant, in the person and in the dis-ease.” --from the author.
