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
"Asia felt to me like everything an ideal teacher ought to be: enthusiastic, friendly, warm, encouraging, appreciative, understanding, attentive, spirited, well-informed, self-aware, humorous... the list could go on forever! I felt like I was learning from a true friend."
“Asia teaches so much information with such ease and in a way that you can really understand. Her examples of her personal journeys give you an “uh huh” moment over and over.”
“Asia is an amazing teacher and facilitator, warm, friendly and very knowledgeable. She describes things so perfectly supporting a great depth of understanding, while bringing a powerful vibrancy and energy. Just beautiful."
“Asia is warm heart on a mission. I believe she genuinely wants everyone to grow in a way that is nourishing to themselves and the world at large- but there is no pressure as to what this should look like. She's all about supporting each person in their unique medicine. Nobody is a mistake.”
“The first word that comes to mind is positivity. Asia’s positive energy is amazing and I always feel refreshed and renewed after listening to or even reading her blogs. [Her work] is refreshing and so educational. It has enabled me to start to “come back” to a place I had wandered away from."
“Asia's calm, matter-of-fact, down-to-earth voice and presence make one feel at home with the concept of relating to plants, stones, Nature. I've left each Gateway feeling enriched, nourished, and confident in MY abilities to access the wonders of Nature.”
“Asia is able to put the other realms into words that are accessible by this realm. Asia both demystifies and mystifies it. It's like.....help, guiding inward and outward and opening up to the mysteries by being able to communicate in this realm about the deeper and outer realms....total beautiful magic.”
