  • Mushroom essences

  • Herbal smoke

  • Overnight infusions

  • Medicine Making

You will get to know many medicinal plants and mushrooms from a variety of California habitats, such as:

  • Yerba Santa

This course is as much about exploring nature / the wild,  as it is about exploring your inner nature and wild side. I truly believe that connecting with plants allows us to reconnect to parts of ourselves that have been forgotten. Allow me to share my heart’s offering with you and join me on this journey of remembrance.
