Sacred Earth Medicine is a window into the magic of Nature and our beautiful relationship therein. We will taste and learn of a few native plants of Aotearoa and truly understand how we can move forward in positive, interactive ways with our health and that of our Planet.
We are inextricably linked to this Planet in magical and mysterious ways. Journey back to who we truly are – at our essence, at our core. Our true nature is Nature. We are made up of star stuff, of all the ancient languages and songlines, sacred geometry is our template; the dreaming calls us to our life mission.
