Plant Spirit Medicine Assn Conference 2017

Dreams: The Sacred Space for our Work as Plant Spirit Medicine Healers

with Gary Reiss, PhD

Early Bird Discount: Save $40 by registering before June 11.

This is the 13th year for the Blue Deer Center to host the conference as the home for Plant Spirit Medicine!

Our work at this year’s conference will focus on the dream world, the sacred space that we work in when we offer plant spirit medicine treatments and connect with the plants. Being able to dip in and out of that dream world is essential to our work, whether it is during treatments, at night time or during an intention journey. In the dream world spirit has a chance to speak to us and move us in ways that benefit our work. It is in that space that the spirit of the medicine comes forth with its wisdom to guide us.

The main presenter this year will be Gary Reiss, who will again provide us with tools and ways to deepen our work as healers with the medicine and the dream world.

We are working with possible presenters from within the plant spirit medicine community who may offer their own unique gifts and insights in their work with the dream world. More updates as we develop the conference schedule.

The Advanced Plant Spirit Medicine class is scheduled just before the conference for your convenience.
