An online and offline collective of complementary health care practitioners that support the whole person on their journey to well being physically, mentally, and spiritually. Through interactive workshops, individual consultation, and support for healers and practitioners we bring Chicago and beyond a space to heal fully.
I support through life coaching, self-authoring, singularity storytelling, western herbalism, and hypnotherapy.
A week long tour and retreat through Transylvania - included the salt mines in Turda, photoshoot in Cluj, Flower Essence workshop, visiting the mountain monasteries, exploring the ancient pharmacy and sleepy houses of Sibiu, driving the winding roads of the Transfagarasan highway,and being hosted in an authentic Romanian village in the countryside.
In this retreat participants collected elements that felt sacred to them and felt guided to define what sacredness for them personally meant within their own lives.
Upon the end of the retreat there was time to integrate and create group flower essence remedies that they would take home to share with others and within their own self-care practices.
The retreat was an option for students of my Elemental Living classes that explored Jungian and Tarot archetypes weekly as well as astrology, flower essences, traditional Romanian folk herbalism, and more.
An offline gallery lecture and networking series hosted in Positive Space Gallery for emerging highly sensitive artists, creatives, and entrepreneurs fascinated by philosophy, mysticism, and personal development.
