Ethnobotany is the study of how people of a particular culture and region make use of their indigenous plants for such things as food, shelter, medicine, clothing, hunting, and religious ceremonies. Shamanism encompasses the belief that shamans are messengers between the human world and the spirit worlds. Shamans are said to treat ailments or illness by mending the soul. Alleviating traumas affecting the soul or spirit restores the physical body of the individual to balance and wholeness. The shaman also enters supernatural realms or dimensions to obtain solutions to problems afflicting the community. Shamans may visit other worlds or dimensions to bring guidance to misguided souls. The shaman operates primarily within the spiritual world, which in turn affects the human world. The restoration of balance results in the elimination of the ailment. Check out our show and learn as Trevahr explains how ethnobotany is used in shamanic practices for healing the body, mind, and soul!
