Embark on a transformative journey to unleash your innate healing power with Herbal Somatics — combining the wisdom of plant medicine and somatic practices — empowering you to cultivate a personal connection with your unique plant allies for holistic wellbeing, enhanced resilience, and deep emotional stability.

 

Nature itself is the best physician.
— Hippocrates
 

Imagine a life where you’re not just aware of your body, but deeply attuned to its wisdom.

A life where plants are not just a beautiful landscape, but powerful allies for your wellbeing, always guiding you on a transformative journey of healing and resilience.

A life where trauma is not a life sentence, but a stepping stone toward profound self-discovery.

In our fast-paced world, it’s easy to feel disconnected from nature and from ourselves. We often overlook the signals our bodies send us — signals that hold the key to understanding and empowering enhanced emotional and physical health.

This disconnection can lead to feelings of isolation, fear, and uncertainty — breeding grounds for trauma — making it difficult to embrace inner transformation and self-actualization...

... because trauma can take away our ability to trust that we know how to make right decisions for ourselves.

But what if there was a way to fully connect with our inherent wisdom, tap into the healing power of nature, and confidently foster resilience and emotional wellbeing?

Clinical herbalist and author of The Trauma Informed Herbalist Elizabeth Guthrie has dedicated her life to making connections between healing the human body and the wisdom found within the plant world.

Her unique approach, Herbal Somatics, combines the wisdom of herbalism with the power of mindfulness and the insights of polyvagal theory.

This multi-dimensional healing capacity addresses not just the physical and emotional layers of trauma, but also the subtle energy body, offering a holistic path to healing and self-discovery.

Elizabeth shares that we all have access to remarkable body wisdom.

By understanding what your body is telling you as you interact with herbs, you can learn to harness your inherent wisdom, tune into your system, and establish a deep connection with the plants that are waiting to help you.

This is not just about healing. It’s about empowering yourself to trust your intuition and reclaim your place as an interdependent steward of the Earth.

Elizabeth’s teachings are rooted in the belief that plants offer us a safe haven — a place to explore the connection and healing that can sometimes feel lacking in our human relationships.

By turning to nature and developing connections with your plant allies, you can build self-confidence, awaken your true self, and embark on a journey of profound self-discovery and healing.

Join Elizabeth for her brand-new 7-week course and be guided on an empowering journey to discover and connect with your own group of plant allies to support your healing journey.

Through many experiential somatic practices, including potent guided visualizations — such as Psychic Forest Bathing to connect deeply to the natural world,journeying to your Garden of Serenity to communicate with your nervines and adaptogens, and conversing with your plant allies through a Sacred Plant Communion — you’ll connect with this beautiful natural ecosystem...

... empowering you with knowledge of the natural world... imbuing you with deep feelings of safety and connection... and unleashing your dynamic healing capacity.

By the end of this course, you’ll know how to harness the wisdom of plant medicine and somatic practices to foster resilience, nurture emotional stability, and cultivate a deep connection with your personal plant medicine allies.

You’ll have a toolkit of practices and techniques — such as creating flower essences for emotional healing, blending essential oils to calm your limbic system, and somatic visualizations to foster powerful relationships with your unique plant medicine — that you can use for every day health and wellness...

... and you’ll develop confidence in your body’s natural ability to heal.

And much more...

Whether you’re just beginning to realize the impact of trauma on your life or are seeking to deepen your understanding of your body and the healing power of plants, this course offers the tools and guidance you need.

Plus, you’ll embark on this path of transformation in the company of a supportive community of like-minded individuals and have the opportunity to share your experiences, learn from others, and build connections that can extend far beyond the course.

This sense of community is a powerful aspect of the healing process, providing you with a safe space for exploration, growth, and transformation.

As you journey through each session of the course, you’ll find that the teachings weave together, creating a comprehensive approach to healing that addresses not just the symptoms, but the root causes of trauma.

You’ll discover how to listen to your body’s signals, connect with plant allies, and use plant medicine to support your whole system’s wellbeing.

“I have watched and listened to Elizabeth teach and I was very impressed.”

I have watched and listened to Elizabeth teach and I was very impressed. Given the fact that I am a clinical herbalist and aromatherapist like she is, it is extremely hard to relay back information about grief and trauma, and she does it very well. My specialty is working with hospice, which incorporates grief and trauma — and from listening to her talk and taking her course, she taught information I am able to use in my own practice. She explains aromatherapy that is used in situations where people are faced with death and trauma. I highly recommend taking her courses because she definitely knows how to draw from her extensive education and knowledge and relate it back to those that need it.
