On my walk out of the woods, I understood with clarity the work I am here to do.
I am a healer.
I am a writer.
I am an artist, a mystic, a misfit and a lover. Of life, people, plants animals…
I am here to be a helper.
I am here to weave you back together with your story, your purpose, your light.
I am here to be a witness of the divine.
To hold up a mirror and show you all the ways that you are all of these things, and more.
We are here to grow together.
And what came to me in that space of acceptance was a healing protocol. Work I have been doing for years, but deeper.
We are here to connect with source. To find the place of balance between the sacred masculine and sacred feminine. We are here to restore balance to nature and find reverence for the life force on our planet. To connect with the sacred energies of earth, air, fire and water. To slow down. To nourish. To heal.
The Earth has saved me more times than I can count. I have been foraged in the wild.
I want to be the vessel through which this wild earth heals you.
Beginning in February of 2018, I will be leading plant medicine (in the form of tea) and meditation classes on the Thursday closest to the full moon and energy work and art making on the Thursday closest to the new moon. Location as yet to be determined, but my gut tells me sometimes this will happen at the top of the mountain, sometimes nearby a river, and other times still in various locations near North Adams.

Intention setting for 2019.
*If you would like to participate, but cannot be physically present, I will be creating a page which will contain each meditation/energy work session, detailed instructions on the art projects and a link to purchase the tea blends. You are welcome to harvest or make your own blends as well.
I like to keep this kind of work cost effective and accessible to those with limited financial means. Each session will be sliding scale $7-15.
You are not obligated to attend every session. This is work you are committing to do for yourself.
You need not have any particular art skills to participate. This is about practice not product. About giving ourselves permission to create, to be present.
This work is open to both men and women.
For people who suffer from anxiety, sleep disturbance, lack of direction, a desire to create ritual and connection to the divine or simply take time to give yourself the gift of healing.
I will be creating a separate course for children and will give you more information about that as soon as possible.
This program will be open for registration in the next week or so.
I believe with every fiber of my being, that 2018 is going to be a year filled with vibrant blessings. I want to help you create the pathways to receive those blessings.
Enjoy these last few days of 2017.
