Thank you for being here
Throughout the years, my love for the plants and Mother Earth drew my interest into the study of fields such as nutrition, essential oils, herbalism, flower essences, homeopathic remedies, and, more recently, the arts of Sacred Landscaping and Plant Spirit Medicine.
Through my work with Plant Spirit Medicine and Sacred Landscaping, I awakened more deeply to the necessity of listening to what the natural world has to say to us. I am convinced that only by relating to the Mother Earth and her inhabitants as living, breathing beings can we create environments that are not only beautiful but self-sustaining and nourishing for all. In this way, we as individuals can begin to heal the desecration and depletion of mind, body, and spirit, as well as Mother Earth herself.
As a 27-year student of the healing arts that includes Reiki I, II, & III, Soul Coaching(R) and Angel Therapy Practitioner(R), I found Plant Spirit Medicine, a powerful and gentle yet subtle healing modality, to be a natural fit with my beliefs and practices. It deeply resonates with the wisdom I learned during my two-year intensive study in Plant Spirit Medicine, a practice that is rooted in indigenous plant spirit healing and Five Element Acupuncture.
For many millennia, human cultures long understood that both nature and humankind are endowed with intelligence and spirit; that the plants willingly give us what we need to live a better life.
The philosophy of Plant Spirit Medicine was instilled in me by my teacher and shaman, Eliot Cowan: “everything has to do with everything.”
This philosophy is confirmed for me in the inherent connections between our inner landscape and the outer natural world. Both Plant Spirit and Five Element medicines reveal how one can correct their internal and external imbalances, allowing them to live more balanced, joyful lives.
My book Soul of the Seasons, based on Five Element theory, offers the reader the template of the Earth’s seasonal changes as a means to navigate life’s always fascinating and sometimes challenging passages.
This is such a memorable moment for me. I am sitting in the heart of a giant redwood tree, wrapped in its loving grace. In the foreground is a the small cone from which these majestic trees grow. The start, and the manifestation, and me. Thank you for sharing this moment with me.
I look forward to meeting you!
