Enslavement, colonization, and forced removal have created a fragmentation of self for most. This fragmentation, also known as collective trauma can lead to individual feelings of isolation, estrangement from nature/community, a sense of non-belonging, and a lack of agency in one’s life. To recover our wholeness and our power, we can deepen our relationship to plants whose spirit, wisdom, and medicine can help to unlock our true nature; to liberate the mind, heart, body and soul.
In a moment of great transformation, we can turn to the botanical world for inspiration, healing, grounding and resilience. Join us for an immersion into the world of healing with medicinal plants.

Topics may include immunity, emotional wellbeing and stress, sleep support, digestive support, and tuning into the rhythms of the seasons.
sacred waters, well, and springs are doorways to the spiritual realm. we not only go to them to gather water, the energy of life, but also to pray, give thanks, and commune with beings that guide us in unseen realms. in this series we will explore practices to facilitate deep rest and replenishment as we honor the element of water, in and around us. in collaboration with plants that help us find spaciousness in the busyness of our minds, we will deepen our capacity to tap into the well-spring of peace that resides inside, providing a ground for sustained healing to grow.
Learn how to use a pendulum to tune into your inner wisdom. When you want a no-muss, no-fuss clear answer right away, a pendulum is just the thing to choose from your divination toolbox.
