WHAT IS A PLANT SPIRIT?
Many healing traditions that use plants medicinally also build relationships with the spirits of the plants.
Fostering a relationship with the spirit of a plant offers a distinct opportunity—it is an intimate experience that occurs within the space of one’s own psyche, and often one’s dreamscapes as well.
Each plant spirit has unique qualities and can help to assist in clearing certain kinds of blockages, beliefs, and limiting patterns. For example, the spirit of rose is generally used for matters of the heart—opening up to self-love and intimacy, building trust & finding gentleness.
WHAT IS A PLANT APPRENTICESHIP?
A plant apprenticeship is a series of five sessions with Dara, or can be a natural part of your sessions with her if you are already working together.
Dara will gather your history and choose a plant spirit most appropriate to your needs that she too has apprenticed with and has a working relationship with.
You must commit to drinking your chosen plant and spending at least ten minutes a day in conscious communion with it for two weeks. This process is aided by making simple, daily offerings to the spirit of your plant.
You will meet with Dara weekly for five weeks, the last two sessions providing vital integration of the work.
An apprenticeship will ideally become a lifelong relationship with the spirit of a plant.
After completing this guided experience, you will find you have a special connection and resource with your plant spirit whenever you have need.
WHAT KIND OF ISSUES CAN PLANT SPIRIT APPRENTICESHIPS HELP RESOLVE?
Apprenticing yourself to a plant spirit can be an incredibly powerful and transformational experience.
The power of a plant spirit continues to grow long after the actual plant matter has been metabolized.
Plant spirits help create profound shifts in your inner and outer worlds days, months, and years after the beginning of the apprenticeship. Work with plant spirits can help with issues as diverse as:
love for oneself
true intimacy in a relationship
finding personal purpose
breaking addictive patterns
manifesting beauty, abundance & wealth
deep fear & primal insecurity
connection to the spirit world
opening psychic abilities
embodied universal wisdom
Plant Apprenticeship F A Q
What kind of plants do you use?
All of the plants I offer apprenticeships with are widely available in North American grocery or herb stores. Some are indigenous or grown in cultivation in this country, while others are from different parts of the globe.
It is the plants that choose me and not me that choose my plants. However, my intention is to use plants that are accessible within our own culture.

"If you listen well to a plant you have solicited medicinal aid from, they say you can learn its song, and its song will be as effective a medicine as the plant material itself. That's when you've taken that plant in as your deep ally: when you can invoke its medicine without even necessarily touching or finding the plant. At that point you have access to the spirit of the medicine."
Kathleen Harrison, Visionary Plant Consciousness
"Every breath is a giveaway dance between you and the plants. Breathe this in. Plant spirit healing vibrates like a harp string, shimmers like a spider web, and is destined to be a warp thread in the re-weaving of the healing cloak of the Ancients."
