A Woman's Self-Care Herbal - Classes/workshops & More starting Spring 2018

 Thank you for your patience with this program. We have all been going through epic transformations on an individual level mirrored by the energies we see around our world. Many of you are feeling this energy and would like a place to ground, plant roots from which to practice & assume the real you....This world needs the real YOU!

We are also creating our Sanctuary for you, for the land, for this work. We live at the Sanctuary, and are off-grid so that is also taking much longer, is much more money and much more work than we could have ever imagined.  Please connect with us for these upcoming program on delay until next spring. In the meantime, we can still come together for some preliminary work. While we offer other more practical classes above, if you find yourself here & reading this, trust that you are ready to go deeper.

Together, we'll spend time in the spring & summer & autumn learning about the herbs. And how they can assist you on your path towards greater self care &self love?  We invite you to accompany us on this beautiful journey. In our summer series, we'll meet many plants & experience how they can help us improve our physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. This course will feature many hands on classes, plant walks, cooking, a little ritual, mindful movement, sisterhood, some chocolate (of course) and lots of fun. There are many paths in herbalism and all of them lead to the same place - the astonishing and delightful wisdom of the plants. Join us as we introduce you to ways you can walk some of these paths.

Our time together will culminate in a celebration of the Goddess

 Women's Day Beauty & Herbal Health Retreat to September 2018.

 Join us for a full day retreat where we Herbal Goddesses will refresh, replenish and re-inspire ourselves and each other!  Our focus will be on connecting our powerful healing abilities reverently with that of the forest spirit. We'll explore making our own natural beauty products, creating immune boosting food, discovering our herbal allies and much more during our sacred time together. We'll open & close our day with a sacred Herbal Goddess circle.

You will leave feeling replenished, inspired & empowered.
