Her Wild Roots Intensive 2023


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
