Unlocking the Spiritual Power of the Plants
Plants sacred to our Afro-Caribbean Traditions from a Palero’s Perspective
Over several years, we have been working on a in-depth book on using plants in Palo. The book looks not only at certain key plants that we use every day in the munanso, but also at plants that grow outside of the Caribbean which are powerful spiritual plants. In our munanso, we do not want to be reliant on botanicas for our plants, and have turned to the natural environment that we live in here in the diaspora for local options. The book includes history, cultural notes, plant energies, and uses in palo. We expect to be completing it in the new year (2019).
