Abrah Arneson Cht RH

Here is what folks are saying about Abrah’s books:

Abrah’s rich storytelling never fails to hold my captive attention and imagination. Her stories reflect deep plant wisdom, unbending truths, wise knowledge and emotional intelligence. Best read in the dark during quiet times, slowly, one chapter at a time. HL

I find the book thoughtfully written and brought up more questions for me. It is a book I will reference as I continue in my journey of ancestral healing.My first time reading through this book was just for the enjoyment of it. My future ones will be for the knowledge and ideas through the plants and stories. It is a book for everyone whether you want some good stories or are doing or are thinking of doing some ancestral work. KP

This book is a must have for anyone with an interest in the history of contraception, the destructive and controlling nature of patriarchy, and/or a fascination with herbal remedies and the women who carried this knowledge forth during the most dangerous times. I know I will be re-reading this book many times. MK

Ireland’s Hidden Medicine:
An Exploration of Irish Indigenous Medicine from Legend and Myth to the Present Day

Ireland’s Hidden Medicine traces the path and fortunes of Irish indigenous medicine from the legendary god of medicine, Déin Chécht, to today.  Unlike the great scribal medical traditions, Ireland’s indigenous medicine is based on medical knowledge passed on orally to each succeeding generation.

This journey explores the difference in worldview between biomedicine and indigenous medicine, before it sketches the changing fortunes of this indigenous tradition from the coming of Christianity, through the law tracts and the medical manuscripts of the Middle Ages, to its demise with the fall of the old Gaelic order in the seventeenth century. From there the book examines how some knowledge could have disseminated within the wider community before exploring the factors that influenced its decline in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.

Irish indigenous medicine is like a diamond hidden in plain sight with its beauty present in the Irish landscape, festivals, and language.  Yet its riches are not realized and it is ignored it to the detriment of health and wellbeing.  Ireland’s Hidden Medicine is an important step in changing this. Signed copies are available on Rosari’s website, and you can also purchase from Amazon.

Steve Taylor

Steve Taylor’s interest in traditional approaches to healing and herbs led him on an exploration of the European Humoral system as originally practised in Ancient Greece, and then revived in the sixteenth and seventeenth century by herbalists such as Nicholas Culpeper. It soon became clear that this system of medicine was an informative and sensitive guide in the art of returning the body back to health and he began to embrace it as his main therapeutic approach in his practice, and after many years of study, practice and teaching this approach he published “The Humoral herbal” in 2021.
