Wow. It is hard to even begin to put into words how much I enjoyed and received from the Roots to Tips program with Heather. I have studied plant medicine in many other formats, but this program is truly special. Heather is a gifted teacher who adeptly balances sharing her own wealth of plant knowledge with the time and space for students to learn directly from the plants. I experienced serious “highs” of plant connection as well as some pretty epic fails leaving fresh plant oils to brew too long – all of it arming me with direct knowledge of how to best co-create with plants. Not to mention – this program is FUN! There was always so much joy and laughter throughout our time together – even digging roots! I’ve already signed up for more classes and feel deeply grateful to Heather and Suzanne for their work for sharing their plant knowledge in this way.
