New Classes for Fall & Winter!
Express Yourself: Flower Essences & Writing
In this six week exploration we will use meditation, flower essences, gemstones, and creative writing to explore topics of self-expression. What does it mean to be a fully expressed human being on the planet today? Expression is more than just speaking, it’s the way we live. It’s how we articulate our wants, needs, desires, passions, values, and philosophies. It’s how we relate to ourselves and to each other. In each class we will meditate and take flower essences to address different aspects of what blocks our self-expression and how we can heal.
Each class will be structured around learning about flower essences, exploring topics of self-expression, and writing.
Dates: Wednesdays, October 14 - November 18 2015; 6:30 - 8:30pm
Location: Gaealana Healing Arts Center
Class is limited to 12 participants, register here for Flower Essences & Writing class
Healing Trauma with Flower Essences and Gemstones @ Portland Plant Medicine Gathering
In our lifetime we will all experience trauma. As a result of trauma we can experience a range of reactions, from minor imprints to PTSD. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder occurs when we are unable to resolve and process through a traumatic episode and it gets stuck somewhere in our emotional, energetic, psychic, mental, and physical bodies. This 75 minute class is an invitation to learn from the plant and gemstone spirits about their role in the healing process. Please note that this is an experiential class involving taking flower essences, working with gemstones, meditating, and being present with our spiritual allies for the release of trauma from past lives, our ancestors, and our own personal story. Together, we will create a sacred learning circle; your timeliness to this session is appreciated.
The Portland Plant Medicine Gathering is a wonderful opportunity to learn from some truly gifted herbalists, hope to see you there!
Date: PPMG is November 13th, 14th, & 15th. Their schedule is still in the works, please register for the
weekend here and keep an eye out for the final schedule.
Location: National College Of Natural Medicine

Healing Trauma: Gemstones & Meditation
(This class is an in depth exploration of the topics and concepts I'll be introducing at the Portland Plant Medicine class)
In our lifetime we will all experience trauma. As a result of trauma one can experience a range of reactions, from minor imprints to PTSD. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder occurs when we are unable to resolve and process through a traumatic episode and it gets stuck somewhere between our emotional, energetic, psychic, mental, physical bodies. In this class, we will work with gemstones and gem elixirs to compassionately support the healing process.
This class is appropriate for students working on themselves or with others. Because healing work around trauma can be complex, it is recommended that each participant also have some kind of support system in place before taking this class (i.e. a therapist, acupuncturist, co-counseling companion, etc.). This class will be structured around meditation with gemstones, learning about stones for therapeutic use, and learning about topics related to healing trauma. Some writing and optional sharing will be involved.
Dates: Wednesdays, January 6 - February 10 2016; 6:30 - 8:30pm
