Communicating with Plants:

Heart-Based Practices for Connecting with Plant Spirits

A step-by-step guide to Plant communication

Everyone has the ability to consciously communicate with Plants. Jen Frey shows that if we are willing to listen, we can hear the Plants speak to our Hearts and teach us how to heal. With the support of our Plant allies, we can be our truest selves and remember our intrinsic wholeness.

In this step-by-step guide, Frey shows how to awaken your ability to directly receive the unique wisdom and healing gifts of Plants. She describes how communicating with Plants is more like a communion than an exchange of words. The primary language we share with Plants is through the Heart, and Plant communication brings an expansion of Heart intelligence and emotional growth. She explains how the Plants help us overcome anxiety, grief, fears, and limiting beliefs and teach us to trust, forgive, embrace self-Love, and enjoy the sweetness of life.

With the wisdom of Plant Spirits, we can have support and guidance whenever we need it and live in co-creative partnership with Nature.

Praise for Communicating with Plants


 “Beautifully written, heartful, honest, and compelling, Communicating with Plants guides us into the deepest kind of relationship with plants, with nature, and with one another. I literally couldn't put this book down. Every page holds treasures, insights, and a depth of plant wisdom that literally rocked my soul. The author has fostered and tended a lifelong love affair with the plant world, and in the most simple and elegant manner, she passes that love on to others. This book will light up your heart and the heart of the world. It is the kind of ‘herbal medicine’ that is needed now.”

Rosemary Gladstar

 “Some writers have the gift of storytelling—their words are conversational, intimate, and captivating. I felt my fairy godmother had me in her lap, winding the path of wisdom transformed into sensations, opening my eyes, the windows of my soul, to the deeply felt world of plants. Within this book you will read passages potent with analogies of truth. At last, solutions and hope in harmony with our ancestors.”

Margi Flint

author of The Practicing Herbalist

“There are special people sensitive enough to hear the conversations happening all around us between our green kin. The plants choose these folk to speak for them—to translate their meanings and intentions into words. Jen Frey is one of these people. She straddles both worlds and generously shares her ways of making those connections. A heartwarming book.”

Mary Reynolds

This intimate and profound guide for entering into relationship with our kin, the plants, will help anyone move into a deeper relationship, wherever they are in their plant journey.

“Communicating with Plants is Jen’s love letter to both people and plants. She artfully and heartfully shares her experience and perspective as she answers one of the questions I am asked most frequently, ‘How do I listen to a plant?’ She demystifies the process and teaches the simplicity and naturalness of our innate ability to communicate and commune with these elders, teachers, and healers who love us and have so much to offer when we take the time to listen. As Jen shares with her readers, our relationships with the plants restore us to ourselves, and this benefits us, them, and all beings on our beautiful Earth. I am grateful that Jen Frey wrote this book; it also provides specific plant wisdom that can help readers on their journey of remembering themselves as part of Nature.”

 “Brilliantly written from the heart, readers are given a series of exercises that open us to understanding what the plants want us to know.

Ph.D., DAOM, herbalist and author of Transformation: Treating Trauma with Acupuncture and Herbs

 “In her generous new book Communicating with Plants, Jen Frey affirms that the world of plants can be not only food and medicine for humanity but also companions, guardians, and teachers as well. Taking plants as her muse, Jen proceeds to teach us not only about the healing properties of these more-than-human neighbors but also through the lens of the plant she touches on some of life’s most important lessons: to live with an open heart, to be aware of subtle energies, to honor and work with dreams, to befriend our own wildness, and much more. For anyone who loves the green earth and wants to deepen into relationship with plants, Jen’s book will be a bountiful exploration.”

Her clear and insightful exercises guide the reader to deepening their relationship with not only plants but the world around us. Through each plant chapter, Jen distills teachings from her years of dedication and expertise and shares so much more than what meets the eye: just like the spirit world she has devoted her life to.”

Kat Maier

 “With grace and an open heart Jen brings a message of healing––a gift directly from the plants.
