    Hormones train to fire in certain patterns over time. These patterns don’t just become us, they are us. And with pregnancy, age or trauma, whether physical, emotional or spiritual, our hormones shift like a kite in the wind, throwing us into a tailspin as we try to recalibrate.

    Plant medicines support our ability to adjust naturally. Using a combination of art, science, and nature, we can instill a stronger sense of balance, or of belonging to a new place in time, whether that time be pregnancy, parenthood, or menopause.

    In this course, we will weave our Materia medica into the organs, hormones, emotional and spiritual body of the reproductive system.

    • Breast and ovarian health are essential to our health as well as our well being, for the pain, swelling, and discomfort can be unnerving. There are, of course, the adverse affects of physical pain, but there is also the fear associated with the increasing incidence of breast, uterine and ovarian cancers.
