This course is an opportunity for those who already have a developing relationship with plants and plant medicine to honor that relationship, to prioritize it in their life and to explore it more deeply in community. Plants are our distant relatives, they have ancient souls and intelligence which is similar and also different to ours. Through honoring them and inviting them to be our teachers and our guides, we may step into deeper relationship and by consequence, learn to work with them, learn to walk more gently and humbly in the world, and learn to embrace the evolution of our own healing.
We will explore different tools and methods to help you develop the skills and confidence to work with plants in a more clear, honest and direct way in your own life and in your practice. Together, we will remember how to communicate with the green world and we will refine our skills of perception, interpretation and integration of their gifts.
This course is for you if you are ready to make a commitment to your personal relationship with the plant world and it will require you to honor the sacredness inherent to the natural world. It is an invitation to dig deep, to open your heart and mind, and to reconnect with the ancestors still alive within you and living all around you: the healers, the teachers, the supporters, the protectors. You will be supported in the process of coming home to the place in yourself that honors and respects other beings and works with them in a co-creative manner. This experience can be life changing, but it is up to you to be ready to invite a deeper level of co-creative existence and respect into your life.

Setting Sacred Space
Communicating with Plant Spirits
Dowsing as a Medium for Intuition
