Stephen Buhner

Stephen Buhner - Earth Poet and Holistic Living teacherStephen Buhner has been called an Earth Poet and Bardic Naturalist by many of his contemporaries. He has been, for the past two decades, the senior researcher at the Foundation for Gaian Studies. Over the past twenty years, Stephen has written 19 books across a broad range of interrelated subjects: the deep intelligence in non-human biological organisms, plant dynamics in ecosystem functioning, the source of indigenous plant knowledge, herbal medicine, the dynamics of human and non human language and communication, bacterial resistance, Gaian perception, aisthesis, heart perception, and, of course, the history of alcoholic fermentation and ingestion. He is, as Rosemary Gladstar once put it, one of the plant geniuses of our time and one of our most potent, experiential teachers about the living intelligence of plants and Earth. His most recent book is Plant Intelligence and the Imaginal Realm: Beyond the Doors of Perception into the Dreaming of Earth (Inner Traditions, April 2013). For more information visit
