Plant Spirit Medicine Introduction and Exploration April 18 (Saturday), 9:00am - 3:30pm, yurt in Portland ($85) A magical day in retreat in the early Spring gardens. Cozy up in front of the wood stove in the yurt, connecting with the plants in their seed and seedling stages. Through tea, meditation, writing, drawing, and journeying, (and possibly preparing a flower essence) we'll sense into which Plant Being we'll be developing a deeper relationship with this coming summer.

Shamanism is an ancient method of experiencing information we are unable to perceive in ordinary reality. This practice is how indigenous peoples of many cultures discovered the healing properties of the plants - through direct connection with the spirits of the plants.
Below are some techniques we might engage to support healing during a shamanic session. Sessions are approximately two hours in length.
Plant Spirit Medicine Connection with a plant ally to support your healing journey.
Power Animal retrieval Connection with an animal guide to support your innate inner knowing. Practices to maintain this connection in day to day life will be gleaned during your session.
Extraction healing Removal of energetic intrusions which may be causing illness or undesirable mental thoughts.
Soul retrieval Return of soul parts which may have been lost due to the trauma of a car accident, shock, abuse, loss of a loved one, labor and delivery, or simply through day to day Life.
I suggest meeting at three week intervals to support integration of soul work you are engaged in. This allows time in your daily life to experience change, while having space set aside to process and deepen your synthesis in a healing environment.
