This book offers a clear differentiation between the different bird species. If bird remedies are relatively well known, the differences between the species have been difficult to establish. The book is well organised, following the scientific classification of order, family, genus, and species, which makes it easy to work with. Individual remedies are examined, drawing out their individual important aspects, enabling us to differentiate between the subtle differences of each bird remedy. In total, forty remedies are explored, from the familiar Falco peregrinus to the less known Pharomachrus mocinno. One down side to this otherwise interesting book is the lack of accompanying cases, which would have been welcome to complement the remedy pictures.
"Peter brings a fine focus that penetrates the outer veils to reveal the simpler and truer nature of things. This leads to brevity of expression as well as concentration of the material: an aqua vita from which we may sip and understand. The information given is really useful in practice, helping me to recognise similima. I have been eagerly awaiting this book." Misha Norland
Seeking the Freedom of the Sky: The Bird Remedies have rapidly become a significant part of practice. The general picture of the Bird Remedy may be relatively clear but the differences between the different species can be subtle and hard to pin down precisely.
This book brings together information on forty different remedies, much of it not readily available elsewhere. It gives a general outline of the features important to birds and how these features are expressed in the Bird Remedies. It then looks at the individual remedies and details the way that particular issues are important in one remedy and less so in others. It also looks at the emerging relationships between bird families and such things as the relationship between predator and prey.
TRANSFORMATION BETWEEN THE REALMS
The remedies that move between the Realms of Sea, Earth, Sky and Underworld have a particular dynamic relationship to that transformation. Understanding this dynamic helps to understand the group as a whole and to find the subtle difference between its members. Groups include the Insects, the Birds, the Spiders, the Snakes, the Lacs, the Drugs and the Trees. "Peter's series of books has been a revelation. The discrimination between' insects and birds is so succinct it is hard to believe it is so true. I can think of no homceopathic books available which give so much wisdom for such a small cost! They have inspired my practice, and benefited my patients."
"This book is remarkably informative, not only in the description of the different Insect remedies but more importantly in delineating how the traits of the insect are expressed in human pathology. The information is practical and brings alive the Insect remedies in a way that is exciting and inspiring."
