Wellness Den



We welcome you to a sanctuary of herbal self-care, tucked into the forest at Spirit Weavers Gathering! The Wellness Den is a haven for emergency first aid of the body and spirit. We are offering each of us an opportunity to support your immediate ailments and needs with Earth based plant medicine; extracts, syrups, topical salves, flower essences. This includes a fully stocked pantry of western medical supplies. At Spirit Weavers women have the opportunity to reconnect with traditional skills while living and sleeping close to the Earth for five days. For many, this reintegration into nature can bring up everything, from practical discomforts of walking and dancing with bare feet, to digestive disrupt from eating a simple plant based diet, to emotional reintegration of feeling herself as a human-animal and part of the Earth. We are prepared! Our team of Clinical Western herbalists and a registered nurse arrives to be in service to you, with both plant based and westerns options. We are honored to support our community in their healing and personal empowerment to use natural medicine.

Many of the plant medicines that we use come directly from the gathering land or from land nearby, including medicines such as elderberry, rose hips, hawthorn berries and so much more.
