Sean Donahue is an herbalist, writer and teacher. He is dedicated to the continuation and revitalization of traditions in western herbalism that connect people and plants as partners in healing, honour the inherent intelligence and potential of the human mind, body, and spirit, and recognize the connections between physical, emotional, and spiritual healing and between personal, cultural, and planetary healing. He has a particular passion for recovering the spiritual and esoteric aspects of western herbal traditions and reintegrating them with medical herbalism. He has been inspired and influenced by the work of Matthew Wood, Margi Flint, and Stephen Harrod Buhner, as well as by the Physiomedicalist and Eclectic physicians of the nineteenth-century, and traditional Cunningfolk, herbalist, and healers of Europe and North America. He is a frequent presenter at conferences and gatherings throughout North America and a contributor to Plant Healer magazine. You can read more about his work at http://www.medicineandmagic.com/.
