Susanna Raeven, herbalist and owner of Raven Crest Botanicals, will share her knowledge of the healing powers and energetic properties of Amazonian plant medicines. Chuchuwasi, piri-piri, renaquilla - these plants are not only wisely used for their medicinal properties in the Amazonian ancient art of healing. They are also often part of a traditional “dieta”, a solitary time in the jungle during which plant teachers guide us on our journeys for physical, emotional and spiritual healing. Taste plant preparations, inhale the scent of traditional smudges and plant perfumes, and listen to icaros - traditional healing songs from the Amazon.
