About this trip

Midwife, Herbalist, Green Witch, Wise Woman, High Priestress –  Women have always been blessed with a strong and deep connection to the natural world. Until not so long ago women were the main keepers and cultivators of food and plant medicine, carrying the seeds and secrets of healing herbs to care for their children, families and communities. Helping each other to give birth and to support the female body in all its wonder and complexity. This is a very deep connection.


Come and experience the Sisterhood of Plants at our herbal retreat at Raven Crest Farm. Reconnect with your plant allies and feel welcomed by the plant spirits in our garden.  Share sacred time in the garden, by the creek and around the fire with other women. Sing harvesting songs. Enjoy Goddess yoga and sound baths. Swim in our beautiful pond. Learn how to support your moon cycle with herbs. Make medicines for your emotional and physical well being with fresh plants.  Meditate in the temple of your womb. Steam your yoni. Soak your feet in flower petals. Braid each others hair. Love your body. Honor each other. Make a plant mandala and bless the waters of the land. 


This is going to be a truly magical gathering of women and plants and a new moon.

What is included?

• classes, workshops, yoga and meditations

• plants and materials for flower essence and medicine making

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!
