The heART of Ritual

and the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.

In Person Training Programs

 

CRYSTAL THERAPEUTICS
Level 1 - 3 Training Programs

Crystal healing is an ancient form of gentle, holistic, non-invasive natural healing that works with your body’s own inner healer to restore equilibrium to your whole BEing.

Our approach is not to teach 'crystal prescriptions' for general application - focus is placed on unique dynamic, real time assessment of the individual as they present in each session, and establishing and treating the root of the issue. Through successfully treating the root cause, the symptoms will naturally cease to exist and the individual will experience relief.

Crystal compounds, chemistry, and homeopathic principles of the crystals we work are covered in our Advanced course, so as to encourage responsible and informed crystal therapy.

WILD MEDICINE MAKING YEAR
Herbal Apprenticeship Program

 

Our herbal apprenticeship program is a hands on season by season adventure into the world of folk herbalism. The framework of this program is wild native medicinal herbs through the energetic principals of western herbalism. Our approach is rooted in relearning how we perceive health and illness, getting to know the herbs themselves, and developing a skillset in keen observation and awareness of the language of the body so that we can recognize 'conversations', patterns of disharmony, and imbalance. This provides a much more useful, practical, and holistic understanding of folk herbalism than simply learning to utilize herbs by matching them with illnesses.

 

Throughout this program you will come to understand the foundational properties by which herbs work, how the body's organs and systems respond to them, holistic assessment, and the art of using your senses, intellect, and intuition to perceive the physiological, energetic and etheric properties of herbs, and more.

 

This program is not just about herbalism though, it's much more than that! It's about a healthier greener way of living, personal development, self awareness, observation, service, and dreaming yourself into BEing. Throughout the year together, we not only speak about plant allies and their medicinal virtues and herbal lore, but also explore ways of fully integrating them into daily life.
