The Influence of Gnomes, Nymphs, Sylphs and Fire Spirits upon the Life of Plants
Dick van Romunde
Translated by James Lee and Jannebeth Röell
Perceiving Plants was originally written as an introduction to Rudolf Steiner’s Man as Symphony of the Creative Word (newly titled in English as Harmony of the Creative Word). From there, van Romunde expanded it and the result is this amazing little book in which the author teaches us how to become sensitive to the nature beings that sustain and effect plant life.
Whether you begin next to a favorite potted plant or out in a beautiful meadow, you’ll find van Romunde teaching you things that will forever change the way you look at the natural world — and will probably forever change your life. For, once we become truly awake to the helpful nature spirits, it is very difficult to go on as though they didn’t exist, as if what we did really didn’t matter.
Perceiving Plants offers us a uniquely joyous awakening to both the nature spirits and our own responsibility. A lovesong to both plants and the beings who create within them.
