Acorns & Cattails. A modern foraging cookbook of forest, farm & field. By Rob Connoley
The culinary do-it-yourself era is in full swing! Many chefs and cooks are seeking a deeper connection with their food through foraging, farming, and hunting, leading many to cast aside the casserole for modern spins on familiar foods.
In Acorns & Cattails, nationally acclaimed chef Rob Connoley offers more than one hundred recipes featuring ingredients that any home cook can forage, grow, or hunt. Each recipe shares modern flavor and texture pairings that will excite professional chef and home cook alike. The comforting mesquite chocolate chip cookie, the indulgent pork belly poppers, and the haute hackberry rabbit paté launch homespun do-it-yourself dishes into modern classics.
In addition to learning to cook foraged and farmed foods, readers will explore the basics of wild plant harvesting (including identification and ethical best practices) while enjoying humorous anecdotes from Connoley’s years of remote gathering. Photographer Jay Hemphill also presents stunning images that capture the bounty of North America.
He is our fiercely armored heal-all, the Native Indigenous healers believe. We were taught not to fall into his trap of hauntingly beautiful spines, his latin name ringing true of their horror. Perched within the damp forest so familiar to us, he is the gatekeeper of that mindset some of us find ourselves in; the Seattle depression, the winter blues, and it’s continuum to introspection and self reflection. When you feel like you have nothing more to give, your energy depleted, he stands tall. Can you feel the heaviness of his surroundings? You stumble upon him in the thick fog of the cold Pacific Northwest rainforest, with a glimmer of light in a limited clearing, so reminiscent of ourselves. Are you searching for that glimmer? His red berries hanging like ornaments on this holiday tree, showcasing the danger he’s capable of. Yet he’s not there to harm you. He’s there to protect you. Let him carry your burdens. Devil’s club (Oplopanax horridus) is used extensively in spiritual practices; burning, smudging, and bathing, for it’s supposed protective nature. It’s bark and stem are used in teas, decoctions and tinctures as an adrenal adaptogen aimed towards the mesomorphic soul, prone to diabetes, hypertension, and high lipid levels. The fatigue that comes with this adrenal depletion is one of dark exhaustion. His power is rooted in the ginseng family line. We are proud to highlight him in our Adrenal TONIC, appropriately paired with the Desert Queen (ashwagandha) to his Forest Kingship, tulsi glycerite to add a little pizzazz to the gloom, and ginger to push it through. We hope you enjoy this true adrenal blend.
Ingredients: Wildcrafted devils club, locally grown organic ashwagandha root, and locally grown organic tulsi (holy basil), and ginger infused in organic cane spirits and non-gmo vegetable glycerin.

Originally written in the Aztec language, Nahuatl, in 1552, this classic codex was the first herbal and medical text compiled in the New World. The author of this extraordinarily rare and valuable document was Martín de la Cruz, an Aztec physician, whose work was subsequently translated into Latin by an Aztec nobleman, Juan Badiano. The book was translated into English in 1939 by William Gates. In these pages are centuries-old Aztec remedies for boils, hair loss, cataracts, insomnia, sore throats, hiccups, gout, lesions, wounds, joint diseases, tumors, and scores of other ailments. Over 180 black-and-white figures of the plants augment the text, along with 38 full color illustrations made specially for the Gates edition. Additional supplements include an introduction to the Mexican botanical system, an analytical index of the plants, and a new Introduction by anthropologist Bruce Byland of the City University of New York. Remarkable for its scope, detail, careful observation, and accurate description, An Aztec Herbal stands as a magnificent example of the impressive medical knowledge of indigenous peoples. This handsome and inexpensive edition of a long-unavailable work promises to engender a new appreciation of the skill and inventiveness of Aztec medical practices in particular and of Native American science in general.

Astrology, Psychology and the Four Elements, by Stephen Arroyo
A modern classic and international best-seller that revolutionized modern understanding of astrology, this book is truly a pioneering work that established a new science of astrological psychology. It clearly presents a language of energy that enables astrology to be reliably used by those in the helping professions as well as by the general public. As Library Journal stated, "Transcending the boundaries of separate disciplines, this work represents a major distillation of astrological principles."
Astrology has been open to criticism through a large part of its long history. In this groundbreaking book Bernadette Brady gives new insights in the intensity of these criticisms by placing astrology into its initial setting, its original world of ancient creation myths linked to the great creative void. Modern chaos theory has now rediscovered this void and Brady maps astrology to chaos theory to produce "chaotic astrology". The result is an insight into fate, freewill and the nature of astrology itself implying that it is neither a science nor a religion, and suggests instead that astrology is an instrument of chaos, a fertile and pragmatic tool for understanding the patterns of life. Original and insightful as ever, Brady navigates the reader through a breath-taking journey which can change forever the way one views the world.

Whether you are a patient with an aggravating complaint or a curious intellectual seeker, Between Heaven and Earth opens the door to a vast storehouse of knowledge that bridges the gap between mind and body, theory and practice, professional and self-care, East and West.
