Dream Divination Plants in the Northern European Tradition by Corrine Boyer
About Dream Divination Plants
"From prehistory, magic and religion have acknowledged the significance of dreams as a bridge to the spirit world, and over time developed practices for dream incubation. Many such practices involved plants sought to incept dreams of a prophetic nature, obtaining knowledge of future loves, fortunes, births and deaths. In Dream Divination Plants, Corinne Boyer draws together many strands of plant folklore, focusing on the popular magic of dream-divination. Bringing old herbal traditions to life with modern insight and a practical approach, she examines the many ways of using flowers, fruits, branches and leaves to forge contact with the oneiric realm.
Previously published as a Law of Contagion monograph and now out of print, the work has been expanded with additional text and illustrations by Peter Köhler, as well as a new appendix of dream-generating procedures using approaches of practical plant magic."
