Her Wild Roots Intensive 2024


This is an in-depth program where you will meet with a small group of women for one full weekend day for six months. Each weekend day will provide a diverse palette of learning experiences designed to wake up your senses to the world around you, to encourage joyful curiosity and inquiry, and to enter into the sacred mystery of the unknown in the spirit of discovery – to reveal where your passions are ignited, how your inner roots connect with the earth and which expansive directions your outer branches wish to develop and grow.


The many experiences we may share include:


Animal tracking and sign

Bird language

Earth honoring rituals

Whimsical nature crafts

Wild edibles

Medicinal plants and mushrooms

Flower essences

Herbal preparations

Food preservation

Map and compass skills

Basket making

Fire making

Singing and movement

Contemplation in nature

Hiking, snowshoeing

Plant attunements and guided journeys

Fun times with new friends

And so much more.…

Paper Making with Wild Mushrooms


Mushrooms are not just for eating…join us as we create unique greeting cards from scratch. We will discover which mushrooms make the best paper, roll up our sleeves and get started. The process requires a second date to allow time for the paper to dry. Then we will get creative with a collection of art supplies to design our our fun and natural works of art.


Dates: This class is on hold for the moment.

Location: 155 Hemenway Road, Leverett, MA

5 Element-Plant Spirit Medicine Workshop


Step in to a deeper understanding of your true nature.

Join Jean Bergstrom and Clare Pearson for a day filled with play, 5 Season Wisdom, a deep dive into Spirit relationships with plants, and an invitation to understand how the seasons influence our inner nature, strengths and challenges.


By looking at Nature and the lessons she has for us, we may become clearer about our own destinies.


It’s a universal concept that Nature is the ultimate healer. But in our busy lives, we don’toften make time to walk in the woods, putter in the garden, or sit down and enjoy a sunset. When we do, we feel rejuvenated, calm and centered.


If we are tuned into our bodies and moods, we may notice that we feel better or worse at certain times of the year. 5 Element Medicine looks at the seasons to help us better understand these feelings within ourselves and each other.


Plants have so many gifts for us-they are our food, our medicine, our inspiration, and they feed our Spirit. In this workshop we’ll journey to the spirit of a plant for the wisdom the plant has to offer us.


With over 40 years of combined experience as Plant Spirit Medicine Healers, Clare and Jean will guide you on this experiential journey. This one-day workshop is an introductory taste of PSM with the option of moving on to the full course that will begin in Spring 2024.


Spend a day with Jean and Clare-playing, dreaming, learning, and experiencing the embodiment of Nature. Don’t miss this great opportunity!


Dates: Saturday,  September 16, 2023, 9:30 am  to 4:30 pm.

Location: Leverett, MA 

Program cost:  $175.  Register by August 15th for the earlybird discount to receive $25 off.


Call or email to register at: Clare (413)896-9461/ or Jean (413)367-2842/ 


We look forward to celebrating Nature with you!
