Synopsis:
This beautifully illustrated compendium details the ancient secrets of physical healing and spiritual renewal in the Buddhist monasteries of Laos.

The knowledge of the use of indigenous jungle plants to provide holistic treatments in mainland Southeast Asia is rapidly being lost, as society modernizes, adopts consumer oriented practices and embraces Western pharmaceauticals. Painstakingly recording the wisdom of an elderly Buddhist nun accumulated over a lifetime of holistic healing practice, Denise Tomecko introduces us to a wide variety of locally available plants, teas and herbs, detailing their application and the natural synergy of these treatments with the spiritual renewal experienced in meditation.

The book includes information on herbal steam baths and water baths, infusions (teas), massage, herbal pills, compresses, ointment and balms, and tranquillity and insight meditation.
