ALL EXPERIENCES OF PLEASURE AND WHOLENESS ARE CO-CREATED
Throughout the year, we will be working regularly with an intentional sequence of medicines that will support us in engaging in a multisensory, multidimensional collaboration with Plant companions that assist us in connecting in a deeper way with the subjects covered in the course work. We will move through meditations and assignments with each medicine that are designed to facilitate liberation through a return to our natural state of interconnectedness. This page is your portal to explore the witches, wizards, and other magical beings who's paths and practices have led them to be able to create personal relationships with the plants that have yielded the uniquely potent medicines they provide for our apprentices.
Meet The Medicine Makers
of La Abeja Herbs, Ambassador of the medicine of Ocotillo
About Sophia: Sophia is best known through her work as the master herbalist at the helm of the nomadic apothecary “La abeja herbs” Through La Abeja, Sophia creates potent and inspired wild medicines and apothecary goods, holds space for herbal wellness consultations, and teaches classes on topics including women's medicine, folk herbalism, and wild foods
About Ocotillo: Ocotillo stokes the creative fire which lives within the womb, belly, and sexual centers, returning Eros to our world, renewing sexual vitality, and re-awakening the body to the electric sensations present in all of Life. Her medicine invites you to speak your truth without apology, to stand your ground and stand up for who and what is important to you. She reminds us how to reclaim our bodies, our time, and our pleasure as belonging solely to us and no one else. Her medicine aids us in deconstructing the stories we tell ourselves about our bodies, our sexuality, and our respective pasts so that they may soften and take new form as we move toward blossoming. You can read the full story HERE.
We will be working with sophia's Ocotillo medicine as part of
Dan de Lion
Of Return To Nature, Ambassador of the medicine of Reishi
About Dan: Dan De Lion is an Earth Herbalist, Forager, Musician, and Teacher dedicated to working with Nature to further the healing of the planet and the soul. He teaches through Return to Nature, providing classes, lectures, and seminars on wild food foraging, mushroom identification, herbal medicine making, as well as primitive and survival skills with a focus on wild foods and forest medicines. He also incorporates the philosophies of yoga, alchemy, meditation, and mysticism into his classes, lectures, and seminars and brings a deep rooted indigenous medicine perspective of practicing intuition with plants, in a systematic and grounded way.
About Reishi: "Hey friends of the forest, we offer to you our wildcrafted Reishi double extracted tincture, decanted on the Equinox, available in our Return to Nature apothecary. Each aspect of this medicine making process was done with intent and prayer in heart, from keeping sure to not overharvest the mushrooms, to making medicine aligned with planetary forces, and meditations on the Reishi's biological activities."
Reishi has been clinically shown as potent immunomodulator and through the ancient traditions of traditional Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, it has been seen as a deep, tissue-nourishing mushroom which helps benefit autoimmunity, depressed immune function, and detoxifies pathways by cleansing blood, nourishing the liver, and reducing inflammation.
We use organic alcohol, and spring or deep well water from my favorite drinking sources, and I wildcrafted each of these beautiful mushrooms.
We will be working with Dan's Reishi medicine IN THE WEEKS LEADING UP TO
