Herbs for the Feminine Spirit

Join us and discover your feminine plant allies.

Doing this work of intention-setting in a community gives us strength and our intentions a foundation.

Join us the next new moon, July 4, to set intentions for what we want to manifest in our lives in a fun and relaxing new moon ceremony. 

This ceremony is open to anyone who identifies as a woman or is gender non-conforming.
