I’m the writer, teacher, medicine maker and seeker behind One Willow Apothecaries–an online gathering place for healing with the living world. I’m so glad you are here.
This online space is a sanctuary to help you establish a profound relationship with the earth, beginning with nurturing the wells of your own self-compassion and intuitive knowing.
I believe deeply that the world will change when we are able to remember our own goodness and open our hearts to re-learning how to communicate with the wider world. Throughout the last decade of working as a teacher, I’ve had the honor of sitting with thousands of students and I can say in all certainty that we are in a turning point in this world–there is a great stream of benevolence that bubbles forth from the center of the earth and we are learning how to drink again.
I offer this work for those who are here to step back into co-creation with the wider world, to use their gifts to help the growing and relish the profound experience of being here on earth.
I offer this work because at one point in time it saved my spirit. My own journey began after early years of chronic pain and illness. The experience–which pushed me into a deep search for healing, both within and without–led me to the altar of the green world and an understanding that truly everything is meaningful. Everyone is good. Everything is medicine. So am I. And so are you.
Welcome dear heart
It has been one of the best decisions in my life to take this course. I feel stronger and much more alive and free. I’m going quite slowly through the material, going really deep into some aspects of it. I am so grateful for what you have created and that I will be able to go back to this material whenever I want. The support I have received from your team and from other participants of the course is amazing.
I'm 60 and have no formal background in herbal medicine, acupuncture, massage, etc. and no plans to pursue anything remotely related to those fields or this course...Yet, when I got this in my email, despite real financial concerns as well, I instantly knew I had to take it. That instinct has proven to be SO perfect...I've taken countless courses throughout my life (post official education) and this is, undoubtedly, one of the best ever. The density of content, the wonderful attention to detail with the lovely music and stunning backgrounds of plants and landscape, the thoroughness of every section...it all adds up to a masterpiece...It is utterly essential balm for the spirit in these challenging times.
This course felt really immersive, intersectional, and inclusive. It is something that I could feel early on in the class and really made the difference. It has shifted my overall awareness of ways to connect with plants in day-to-day practice as well as internally.
I love the way Asia teaches. I feel like I am having a remembering from how I was when I was a child. That it is okay to be me and to talk to the world around me. This course will take you into a deeper understanding of the world around you and within you. If you are looking for a way to expand your knowledge in a way you can’t learn just from books take this course.
I have been an herbalist for over a decade, and I am a highly sensitive- this is the best class I have EVER done. It will literally change your life. Even if you are not an herbalist or an intuitive naturally you should absolutely take this course. This course has meant so much to me, and has grounded me, comforted me, and encouraged me in such a huge way. I don't have words. Seriously- best decision I have made this year was to sign up for this.
This course is such an incredibly generous offering. I still can't quite believe how much information and extra resources are being shared. I know I will return to much of the material through the years. Doing this course during a pandemic and the Black Lives Matter uprising was transformative, and helped me stay grounded while balancing my inner and outer work. It also gave me hope and purpose on days where I felt depleted and defeated--simply by being with the plants in my garden or going on a neighborhood walk with my daughter and looking at all the blooms. Getting regular reminders that we all have medicine to share, that we are all precious, was (and is!) so needed. It's been the best gift I have given myself as a new mother. TAKE THE LEAP! You will be uplifted, inspired, and blown away by all the offerings, but most of all by the discoveries you will make along the way.
I feel like I now have a greater awareness of the natural world. Every time I walk out the door I notice the trees, flowers, and plants and am able to connect on a whole new level. This course has definitely helped me tap into my intuition and has been life changing. I see the world in a completely different way! I loved the unique activities and rituals. Going out and collecting flowers for essences and plant spirit bathing with my daughter created many valuable memories over the summer. After moving across the world, this course helped me connect with the new desert landscape and discover the unique plant life around me. This was an amazing course!
