“ I trust Margo’s connection to the natural world. Her patient teaching of communicating and honoring the plant kingdom, is comforting.  She is full of life as she teaches of their medicine, and lust their for life.”

Sarah Barker

 

 Dear Kindred Spirit, We are but one light. 

 Allow me to share with you what the earth and the plants have shared with me.  You will not be disappointed as field, forest and stream; mountain, earth and sky become teachers.  Helping you to “remember” that which is in your DNA, passed on to you from our Ancestors.  ~In harmony & Gratitude, Margo

 

Walking the Wheel                 A Cycle of Life Apprenticeship

A four season journey exploring the energetic life cycle of ALL living things with a focus on natural growth patterns. Following the wisdom of the Medicine Wheel, and the teachings of the four directions, we will tune-into the rhythm life cycles of the earth, trees and plants, flowers and roots, and ourselves.  Let’s explore ways in which we can actively participate in making a living, conscious connection to the web of life by becoming stewards of the earth and nurturers of our own wild natures.

During each session we’ll: 

     Experience the plants through the use of our 6 senses as we touch, smell and taste along the way of the wildcrafting path.

     Playfully record our plant observations through the artistic use of journaling, sketching &/or watercolor painting (no previous experience necessary!) 

     Harvest/Gather wild growing plants and learn traditional ways in which to work with them at their energy peak and readiness.

     Explore nature based teachings including the elements, the seven directions, animal totems, season to body organ relationship and the plants that correlate to that need.

This course is a journey for a new perspective!  A deepening of the Intuitive! Where you will learn to read and attune to the natural rhythms of a living, breathing earth and participate in the great exchange called life!
