>Your relation about the "Mother SouL" plant is of interest do you
happen to know the Botanical name of this plant?<
Yes, its botanical name is Thymus serpylum - wild thyme, while its
domestic sister is Thymus vulgaris. I found a web site with very good
information on it:
It seems that it was used as incense in old mystic rituals as it is
now used during the mass in Roman-Catholic Church. Slovenian sources
on "Mother's soul" say that it was used in old magic rituals and that
it is a sort of natural antibiotic.
While searching the net I even found that on Sardegna (Italian
Island) they call their sort of wild thyme "timo cedrato" (cedar
thyme) - interesting, isn't it.

lineages in Slovenia.<

in the mountains region and preparing healing and magic drinks. But
the area where they lived (and our country is really small) became
one of the major battlefields during the WW I and was largely
destroyed (here is an interesting web site:
But our shamanic tradition is now already to some extend revived in
more modern form in the work of artist Marko (Mark) Pogacnik
(Pogachnick) who created Earth Healing process named Lithopuncture.
His work and life is well documented on these two web sites:
I am sure many will find this information very interesting.
