Group Classes

Animistic Healing Arts
Group Classes


There is no better way to revive what it means to come to the hearth than in group classes. In the old wise ways, there was no separation. The harmonious union of our ancestors to one another and to the spirit and natural world was ever present. The health of one individual was the health of the community and the health of the land. It was interwoven. And it still is.


For over 15 years I have been teaching a variety of classes, from plant spirit classes, earth-based nervous system groups, animistic healing practices and more. These classes are inspired by the earth-centered teachings of Ann Drucker, the Maya plant healing traditions of Miss Beatrice Waight, the somatic practices of Zvi Ish-Shalom, the land and plants that I live with, and the wisdom of my earth-and-cosmic-centered ancestors.


You can find descriptions for upcoming and past classes below.

Past Classes Offered


Women's Soul Remembering Circle (2023)

In these current times it can be easy to lose sight of who we are, why we’re here, and what medicine we each carry. In support of our personal and collective development, we will gather in sacred community with our spirit guides and each other to explore our original blueprint and the gifts we are here to share. This group will be centered around the shamanic practice of soul remembering. A soul remembering is a journey or meditation in which you are brought back to the moment before you were born to remember who you truly are and what gifts you have come to earth to share.


Partnering with the Plants (2023 & 2022)

This women's class will gather to engage respectful, nourishing, and collaborative relationships with our Plant Elders. We will listen in embodied presence to what the plants would like to show us. These wise ones have the long view and know deeply about change, and they want to support us as their younger kin. Partnering with the plants in a good relationship helps us navigate the changing times we are living in with more grace, wisdom, perspective, and can bring deep healing. 


Partnering with the Plant People: Exploring Relationships with the Plantcestors (2019)

Plants were on earth long before humans and animals. Humans would not be here today if it were not for our plantcestors. Plants and humans have evolved alongside each other in a relationship that was once known by many of our ancestors as a sacred kinship. In this class series, explore practices that support cultivating relationships with the plant kin. Experience the unique and exquisite presence of each plant that goes beyond what has been written. From the foundation of an authentic relationship, we will engage the possibility for healing, transformation and direct revelation.


Deepening Relationships:Animistic Practices for Relating with Spirits of the Land, Ancestors, and Guides (2018)

Animism recognizes that we are part of a community and honors the relationships that connect us all. This community includes nature spirits, animals, humans, ancestors of place and blood, and many other beings.


In this 5-course series, we will explore practices and engage in ceremonies that support cultivating healthy relationships with the land and ancestors of the land. We will also experience practices that tend and deepen our relationships with our ancestors and guides.


Earth Based Nervous System Support Group (2021)

​This class will gather to engage in different earth-centered practices to nourish and support the nervous system. Resourcing our nervous systems with earth-centered practices creates more relaxation in the body, balance and clarity in the mind and emotions, and strength and centeredness in our spirit. Nature has the long view and knows deeply about change. Overall, partnering with the earth in good relationship for nourishment allows us to surf the changing times we are living in with more ease and grace. 


The Call (2020)

The intention for this gathering is to strengthen our connection to the spiritual world for greater perspective and resource, and also that in these changing times, we need each other to not only survive, but to thrive. These group meetings will have an opening grounding, a teaching, a community or partnered practice, a ritual or dedication of merits to the humans and more-than-human world, and a closing. There will always be a time dedicated to clearing what needs to be cleared and calling our energy back to us so that we can be centered in our true selves.
