I am a lover of life and plant medicine enthusiast. I share herbal knowledge on the daily, and I love to wildcraft botanical medicine whenever the season is ripe. I consult clients, offer herb walks & bodywork, and host contemplative classes on the subtle effects of Flower Essences and the energy bodies. I have over 20 years of personal experience, class time provings, & superior client results with Flower Essence therapy, herbal medicine, & Craniosacral therapy, all of which I am passionate to share with the world.
I am an Herbal Educator and I have taught at the Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism in Boulder,CO, the Appalachia School of Holistic Herbalism in Asheville,NC, San Francisco State University's Holistic Fair, The ARISE festival, Building Man and other small community events.
I have over 2000 hours of herbal education which I obtained from 1999-2002 at the Rocky Mountain Center for Botanical Studies in Boulder, CO. It was here I was certified as a Clinical Herbalist with a specialty in Vibrational Medicine with a background in Nutrition, Earth Centered Herbalism, Ethical Wildcrafting, Medicine Making, and knowledge in TCM, Ayurveda, and Western Herbalism.
Over the course of the next 9 years upon completing my herbal journey, I studied Zen Shiatsu, Craniosacral Therapy, Thai/Pregnancy/ Swedish/Deep & Sports Massage Therapy, and I weave these components of bodywork into each healing session.
I have healed, studied, and now teach all of the modalities I utilized while on my healing journey with the plants. I have learned from this experience that "Anything is Possible" and that I am a conduit of these modalities....
In the Spirit of the Plants,
"Vibrational Essences are tinctures of liquid consciousness and stored within them is an evolutionary force, indeed the life force itself." -Gurudas
I perceive the human being as an energetic, holographic system and I believe all presenting ailments stem from vibrational patterns of energy, whether they are physical, spiritual, or emotional in quality. From this lens, the spirit is included in the healing paradigm, also known as "shen" in Chinese Medicine. The electromagnetic existence linked to the spirit is also synched up with the chakras, aura, meridians, our light DNA strands, the firing of the electromagnetic impulse across the heart before every beat, and the Universe. In this perspective, we are energetically aligned with existence in the akash, or ethers, on vibrational and quantum levels.
Utilizing plants to heal the mind, body, and spirit is an ancient art and practice dating back thousands of years in many cultures and healthcare systems, such as Ayurveda or Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Botanical Medicine, whether in the form of tinctures, flower essences, essential oils, herbal teas, powdered roots, or poultices, effortlessly and brilliantly work to restore vitality and homeostasis on every level of the being. These plant allies, our original medicines, were used by the Eclectics (herbalists), Homeopaths, & Midwives until the early 1930's, when a review was passed by the Flexner Report on medical schools and systems currently practiced in the United States. This report led to the beginning of the current medical care, the American Medical Association (AMA) and deemed most healing arts schools and the healing systems illegal to practice, practically overnight.*
