Ways to Work With the Plants and Trees through Me
Woven into all of the work below is sharing about how we may nourish ourselves in connection with the plants and trees including preparing and drinking nourishing herbal infusions, mindful harvesting practices, and how to prepare herbal vinegars, tinctures, honeys, and oxymels. I do sometimes share of ways and properties of the plants commonly known to heal us and support us related to challenges (i.e. Echinacea is known to boost immune function), however focus on connecting with the plants to hear what they offer specifically for what is at hand.
We will schedule a time to work together. These sessions are normally 1 – 1.5 hours long, and can be conducted virtually or in person at my home in Washington DC. I will ask you for your intention a few days in advance of our session. Some sample intentions are “I want to heal my ovarian cyst”, “I want to be more organized in my life”, “I want to release anxiety and feel more ease”, or “I want to know my purpose in life”.
When we meet for our session, we will go outside for part or all of the session. Sessions are rituals. We sing and cultivate mindful, present listening and sharing through a talking stick practice. I will share with you how to breathe with the plants and seek and listen to their guidance through asking questions that they have related to your intention of the session. We will give gratitude. We will drink nourishing herbal infusion. We may ask to harvest, harvest with permission, and create a preparation of an herbal vinegar, tincture, or honey. We may do prosperity, visioning, and/or goal-setting work. Among these and other tools in my toolbox are shamanic journeying, power animal retrieval, shamanic extraction and mystical teachings and practices.
Duration: 1-1.5 hours
Relating With the Plants and Trees Workshop
Join me for this workshop at my home in NW Washington DC to connect with the plants and trees. We’ll drink nourishing herbal infusion and open the gathering with a song and sharing practice. I will talk a bit about my practice of Shamanic Herbalism. We’ll go outside, and I’ll share a practice for breathing, connecting, and asking the Willow Oak tree here by my home for wisdom. We will do that practice together, and then I’ll welcome relating of experiences from the group. I may also share how you may meet your plant or tree ally, we may make an herbal preparation, and/or we may do an additional shamanic practice for further connecting with our intuition.
Duration: 2.5 hours Cost: $15pp (These in-person workshops are currently on-hold, related to Covid-19, however I am offering an abbreviated version that I am offering monthly as a virtual workshop that is 1 hour long.)
Heather intuitively asks her plant and tree guides to tell her of a plant or tree that wants to work with you. Then she shares a simple breathing and asking practice you can use to connect with the plant or tree coming forward for you so that you can receive wisdom and guidance. Plant readings may be shared in person or by phone or Zoom.
Duration: ~half an hour
Let’s connect to the wisdom and guidance available to you in your garden! Garden readings can be shaped based upon your wishes for connecting more deeply with your garden and hearing the wisdom it has to offer, and may include:
-Calling in the directions, in this sacred space for our work
-Walking in your garden, listening and sharing what comes regarding special qualities of plants, including energetic, medicinal, and historical qualities and purposes
-Hearing from your garden what it would like in support of flourishing
-a Plant Reading
Duration: ~2 hours
“A Date With Nature” Group Walks

I’ll share a breathing and listening practice for connecting with the trees and plants. I’ll also share nourishing herbal infusion.
