Join us on the magical island of Oahu for 4 days of tropical plant medicine classes.

We are offering two weekend workshops in sacred plant medicine, ethnobotany lecture, plant walks, medicine making, and meditations with the healing plants of Hawaii. Join us as we spend time relaxing in beautiful botanical gardens reconnecting with nature and the magic of our plant teachers.
