It takes time to become a healer and an herbalist. It takes time spent with the Earth to understand her patterns and magic. Medicinal plants all have personalities that you can get to know, love and thus, respectfully ask to become your green allies. It is all about good relationships.
For twenty-five years, it has been my privilege to have studied with two collectives; the Council of Elders and the Council of Healers. My mentorship opened new worlds and taught me about how healing works on all levels, instructing me on the medicine of plants as well as the energetics of healing.
I have studied formally over the years at various schools to learn what a healer needs to know about anatomy, patterns of dysfunction and such. I am a fully trained herbalist, iridologist and energy/light worker, but my most invaluable training has been through the decades of having people come to me for help. Each and every person has gifted me with a piece of the puzzle on how healing works, for which I am very grateful.
My years of experience as a teacher has enabled me to design courses that take my students step by step through course materials, balancing learning with hands-on experience and always making it fun!
