Touched by Nature

Every plant has a spirit, and every spirit has a story to share, and every story offers widsom and knowledge . . .

You become part of those stories every time you walk through the woods or stroll through a meadow . . .

. . .every time you take a breath of spring air or gather wood for your winter fires. 

The knowledge and wisdom is all around us. It’s simply a matter of letting it . . .

 

. . .touch our hearts.

Pip Waller and Lucy Wells

The Book. . .

Touched by Nature is a book about the medicine of the plant spirits told through many different voices and stories.

It is a medicine that can deeply change our lives and help us troubled humans rejoin the great web of nature, moving us closer to greater balance and harmony.

“It is an inspirational read and shouts out joyously about this much needed and timely medicine for our world today.”

Julie Woods

“A truly magical book. The plant spirits will step out of the pages to inspire you on your healing journey!”

Lucy Harmer

“This book is a window on a way of engaging with the world that is very ancient and very needed at this time.”

Michael Vertolli

FAQs

What is plant spirit medicine?

Plant spirit medicine is a system of healing that encourages shifts and flows within a human being’s energy system via the gifts of the plant spirits.

These shifts and flows are towards greater balance and harmony. It is a holistic system meaning that it assumes that a human being is a spiritual, mental and emotional being as well as a physical being inhabiting a body.

Plant spirit medicine is administered by a plant spirit medicine healer who acts as an agent for the delivery of the healing powers of the plant spirits.

Plant spirit medicine touches all the aspects of a person’s being thereby helping to resolve issues that have their roots in the other than physical world. It is a very thorough system that has strict protocols and parameters.

Plant spirit medicine as practised in the way that we are advocating does not involve the ingestion of any plants.

What is an ‘introduction to plant spirit medicine’?

It is a weekend opportunity to immerse yourself in the natural world and learn techniques for making relationships with the plant spirits.

Over the course of a weekend you will be provided with practical exercises in a very supportive environment to help you make the profound connections that open us up to a new and invigorating appreciation of the living world.

This perspective demands that we slow down and take the necessary time to listen to the quiet wisdom that is broadcast from the plants.

As a course it is potentially life changing and can be taken by complete beginners or by those with some previous experience.

New Online Course

Because of the difficulties meeting in person at the moment we are offering our courses online

We are offering a “Touched by Nature” 5 module online course which follows the year and the seasonal energies of

Spring, Summer, Harvest Time, Autumn and Winter.

The course is designed to deepen connection to these elemental energies as we experience them within ourselves and in the world around us.

We invite you to immerse yourself in each season’s individual flavour and explore your relationship with them, what they bring and how best to harness and understand their particular qualities.

Over the course of the year you will be introduced to a series of guided explorations and exercises designed to enhance awareness and more fully embrace this fundamental natural cycle.

Each module begins with an online conference call via Zoom to introduce ourselves and answer any questions which may arise in response to the course outline which you will receive upon registration.

There is ongoing support via email or phone with Lucy and Pip and a second conference session on completion of the module for feedback and sharing.

You will work at your own pace within a specified time frame during each season.

COST: £50 per module (£250 per year)

concessionary rate £30 per module (£150 per year)

We are aware that especially at the moment many people are without income and facing financial uncertainty and would like our course to be available for anyone who feels called to do it, so please make us an offer and we won’t be able to refuse. ( £10 minimum.)
