Foraging and Herbalism Retreat @ Ananda Ashram – Part 1 – Intro

Return to Nature – Foraging and Herbalism Retreat @ Ananda Ashram – October 16-18 – This is the workshop introduction where we explore a mugwort opening ritual and plant sense meditation aspects.

Throughout the weekend we explored many levels of engagement with the ecosystem, including topics such as Ayurveda principles (constitutional healing and taste), and Paleolithic sense meditations, foraging and herbal philosophy, Inner child work, Foraging and plant identification, Dreamtime with plants under our pillows with a breakfast mugwort dream share, Medicine making and magic practice, theory, and ritual, astrology, sadhana, Plant sits, and closed with a plant medicine mandala.

I’m looking forward to take these teachings and rituals nationally and globally in 2016! Starting with a winter visit to the west coast. More on that soon – If youre in the area, let’s collaborate and make magic together!

Stay tuned-in to upcoming classes, workshops, and retreats at

Much love,
