Healing Village is a curation of healers offering a range of modalities to help you restore, ground, focus, stretch & grow. During our collective time together on the land, many feel called to turn inward to a more private, quiet space. In this space, womxn can integrate & reflect upon their personal experience in a safe environment while receiving healing support.
We look forward to welcoming you to the healing village as a space for refuge, regeneration, and empowerment at the gathering. Heading into our 8th year as a healing community, we are deeply honored to be of service with utmost integrity, compassion, and respect for the caliber of womxn and work present year to year at the gathering. It is beautiful to witness and facilitate this growth together hand in hand with gratitude, passion, and wild open hearts.
Ever since Jessi was a little girl, she has believed in magic. Always curious. Always imagining. At around 5 or 6 years old, she remembers looking down at her hands, knowing they had healing powers. Her most-loved activities included splashing around in the creek, crushing acorns for potions, air guitar, and pretending to be her favorite animals. Over the years, these first loves have evolved and expanded, but their essence is still the same. From dance to theatre, from permaculture & plants to singing & playing drums in a band, from tea ceremony to reiki… and everything in between, her wild passion to facilitate magical transformation and be a bridge to the unseen is the force behind all her many loves and creative endeavors. All crafted and carried out by her healing hands.
Jessi is a level II practitioner trained in the Tera Mai Seichem lineage. She has also received a Violet flame attunement as well as a YOD attunement, the first of the 21 Egyptian cartouche initiations.
