Plants can heal. And plants can do this for us in a myriad of ways. One profound way is to simply be present with the living plants in their natural habitat. We connect, and we follow.
I offer myself as your guide through this healing journey into the spirit world of plants. Plants express their Nature in a variety of ways, and we all have our unique abilities to perceive these expressions and communications. We just have to be present and tune in.
The majority of information given on plant walks is didactic and often given as the "whole story". What we "know" about plants is simply the tip of the iceberg. What we can feel, and truly know, in turn, is exceptionally powerful and limitless in its potential to heal and guide us on our collective paths.
We’ll sit with plants in their natural habitat, taste tinctures, and engage with them directly through our heart-centered intelligence. What transpires remains to be seen, but in my experience, it is always fruitful, always enlightening, and often deeply healing, regardless of your level of knowledge or experience with plant medicine. In fact, the less knowledge you bring, the more you may gain from the experience.
As facilitator, I dedicate myself to guiding the group safely through this experience into the depths of the space inhabited by our feeling sense, seeking to find the authentic medicine, insight, or vision awaiting each participant.
I have now guided hundreds of people through dozens of these experiences. I am continually grateful for all the learning and healing it engenders, personally.
Come with an open mind, a willingness to participate through your innate feeling sense, and we will go forward together as a group of intrepid explorers into this vast terrain of the Heart, well-attended by our friends of the plant kingdom.
You can also join us for the morning class (9-12p): Movement in Nature
