          “When we wake up in the morning and drink our tea, our coffee our smoothie or our raw juices, do we think of the farmers who cultivated this food? Do we remember our mother earth, who provides this nurturance, the Source of Life making this all possible? When we hear musical instruments, are we cognizant of the materials mined from mother earth to make these sounds possible, and the miracle of vibration creating sound? When we walk on the ground are we connecting with our mother earth, and expressing gratitude for all the gifts we receive?

          Immersing myself in the study of essential oils and receiving the blessings of their healing has profoundly deepened my connection to this consciousness. It is so easily lost in our busy mechanized world. Food, light, sun, wow! We can be so moved by appreciating the earth’s loving gifts! Essential oils are sources of heart mind body and spirit healing, and bring us back into gratitude and connection with Source.

            This weekend seminar will teach you the basics of aromatherapy, the characteristics of Trees and Plants, and guidance as to how they facilitate healing on all levels and support all other healing modalities. It will instill confidence in your ability to use them safely and effectively. And through our immersion into experiencing their voices, it will transform your relationship with them and with your place as a beautiful child on this planet. Together will begin to experience the transformation that occurs with opening to communication with the Trees and Plants who offer their guidance and help as we cultivate our openness to receive. It will deepen your connection to mother earth, the awareness of the Oneness of life, and the paradigm of Love that is the vibrational message of essential oils.”
