I am passionate about teaching Plant Medicine and I love to ethically wildcraft when the seasons are ripe.
I specialize in Flower Essences and highlight this area of vibrational medicine while teaching at herb schools, music & healing arts festivals, and community events.
I have witnessed these remedies continually & effortlessly restore a sense of homeostasis within the mind, body, and spirit of people, plants, and animals, sometimes immediately and other instances over a period of time with
These vibrational tinctures of flowers infused in spring water & sunlight help ease the restrictions in our energy bodies, whether physical, mental, or emotional.
I unknowingly began #theherbalistpath through my own healing journey from a
climbing/scrambling accident at age 27.
The adaptogens, nervines, & flower essences were my first plant medicines for years during recovery, alongside mantra, visualization, craniosacral therapy, friends, family, herb school, and
a whole lot of TIME.
It is through the direct and profound experience of
healing a loss of self with plant medicine and alternative therapies that
I have gained total faith in the power of plants.
It is innately the plants healing design to aid
the body in attaining homeostasis on all
levels of being.
I am available for herbal & flower essence consultations in person, via phone, & zoom live conferencing..
Plant Medicine Background ~ Clinical Herbalist ~Three year hands on herbal training formally began at the Rocky Mountain Center for Botanical Studies in Boulder, CO., 1999-2002, where I received certification as a Clinical Herbalist with a specialty in Flower Essences and a background in Holistic Nutrition, Earth Centered Herbalism, Ethical Wildcrafting, Medicine Making, and medicinal plant knowledge in TCM, Ayurveda, and Western Herbalism
Art of bodywork ~ I immersed myself into nine years of studying various modalities to weave into my herbal & healing arts practice...
including Zen Shiatsu at the California School of Massage, Advanced Craniosacral Therapy at Esalen, Swedish-Deep tissue-Thai table in Ft. Collins & Denver, CO...
YOGA LINEAGE~Several years later, I took my first yoga teacher training at 7 Centers Yoga Arts in Sedona, AZ. in 2009, under the lineage of
Swami Satyananda Saraswati. I love teaching yoga.
Guest Herbal Teaching~ Colorado School of Clinical Herbalism in Boulder, CO, Appalachia School of Holistic Herbalism in Asheville, NC, San Francisco State University's Holistic Fair, The ARISE festival, Building Man, LIB, and many community events.
I weave various techniques of bodywork into each table session, offering a safe and sacred space for each client to achieve greater health on all dimensions.
Each session is designed uniquely for the client and can include hot stones, moxa, plant medicine, rattles, and a blending of bodywork modalities.
Sound Healing, sacred smoke, flower essences, and ethically sourced essential oils enhance each treatment on subtle, vibrational levels, promoting deep relaxation and an awakening of the Spirit.
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. This electromagnetic existence vibrationally links the spirit, meridians, chakras, and our aura directly to the universal field of energy.
Flexner Report & Alternative Medicine
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.*
