If you have found yourself on this page of my website chances are you are enchanted by the magic, mystery and beauty that horses and plants have to offer.
If that’s the case, you are in the right place!
I have been practicing herbal medicine in one form or another for most of my life. My great grandmother, Porfidia practiced Curanderismo and although I never met her, her gifts with plants, animals and the natural world were passed on to me.
This and my lifelong passion with horses as well as my background as an educator, and facilitator of programs for women and girls has shaped this unique and powerful offering.
The Herbal Healing for Horses Certificate Program is about supporting you in developing a depth, confidence and inner wisdom as pertains to using natural healing with horses. This program is also about you sharing what you know and stepping further into your role as a community herbalist, educator and wise woman.
I desire to work with participants who wish to leave a legacy and to share what they know with their communities.
The tangible takeaways and learning objectives are listed below. The intangible gifts you may receive differ for each person. Some of my students have shared that they trust themselves more, feel more connected to their intuition, trust other women more deeply and understand their life purpose.
