About this trip

Healing our hearts begins in the garden. Learn how to commune with plants and the other-than-human world at a magical herb farm in upstate NY. Susanna Raeven, herbalist, Earth Wisdom Keeper and owner of Raven Crest Botanicals, will take you on a green journey into the realm of plant spirits and their many medicines for emotional and spiritual healing. We will experience the animals, flowers and trees in our woodlands from a place of deep connection with the natural world and open up pathways to let LOVE flow freely between all beings in the garden. 


We will share the magic of making flower essences, practice the honorable harvest, make a flower mandala and pray for the waters. Green Yoga with sound bath, guided meditations, birdwatching and plant medicine making will fill our days together. 


This is going to be a truly magical weekend with our herb garden in bloom, the woodlands full of moss and fragrance and the creek rushing with sacred waters. The spirits of the plants and the land can't wait to meet you.

Plant Spirits in Your Garden was a treasured experience. The land, the plants, the (non-tick) insects, the birds, the people, the food, the accommodations, the wisdom, the music, the magic, was such a joy, and super inspiring. I learned a lot and opened new parts of myself, thanks to this nurturing environment. I've brought a lot of the teachings back to my own urban interior/exterior garden, and I hope to return to Ravencrest soon to soak up more information and love. THANK YOU!
