“There are certain things you can experience in life that change the way you view the world. A plant walk with friendly, hip instructor Becky is one of them.” – Angela H., Urban Foraging 101 attendee
Reiki 1: Activating Your Lightworker Self
1 pm to 9 pm on Saturday, April 5, in Portland, OR
Reiki 1 is very useful for deepening meditation and relaxation. It also heightens your intuitive abilities and sensitivities to the subtle realms, raises your vibration so that you attract healthier circumstances in life, makes meditation more enjoyable and helps you get into trance more easily, and brings about a detoxification of your mind, body, and soul that helps you clear away anything out of balance in your internal or external reality. Reiki 1 is both an educational opportunity and a ceremonial initiation that gives you the ability to channel Reiki healing energy at will through your hands and in doing so, heal yourself and others, including pets, land, water, food, life situations, and more. See the full event description on Facebook.
Taught by Becky Lerner, Reiki master teacher and healer at PlantSpiritReiki.com
More spring classes will be announced soon!
PRIVATE CLASSES, TALKS, & YARD ASSESSMENTS
Wondering if you can eat those wild plants covering your lawn? Whether you’d like me come to your house and teach your family about the wild plants in your yard, want an indoor lunch-hour presentation for your business — or you want to go for a private guided “hike” down a city street or wilderness area — our time together will transform the way the way you look at the world around you, leaving you feeling empowered and excited about the incredible abundance that surrounds us all.
I offer classes and talks for groups and individuals in Portland and the Pacific Northwest, including plant identification, survival preparedness, herbal medicine making workshops, smoking ceremonies, guided plant-spirit meditations, and more. My expertise is in the identification and use of wild plants of the Pacific Northwest — including weeds, trees, and many escaped cultivars — for food, medicine, and survival. I also love to facilitate guided meditations and smoking ceremonies, teach DIY herbal medicine, and enjoy speaking about sustainability and the philosophical aspects of working with wild plants, which are an important part of my book, Dandelion Hunter.
