The contents of this book were researched using an indigenous technique known as shamanic journey, whereby a connection is established with the spirit of a tree, animal or mineral so as to receive its sacred medicinal and healing properties. Homeopathic provings were done on some of the essences to confirm the effectiveness of the shamanic journey technique. All processes wre conducted with respect and in a sacred manner. The remedies were then aligned with an ancient structure called the four winds, offering a doorway to a deeper understanding of the connectedness of all things. The Rainbow Essences of Aotearoa book corresponds to the 50 remedies created in C49 potency to move people through issues into emotional, mental and spiritual health.
