I was seeking ways to to deepen my connection with the natural world and had a longing to honour the ways of my ancestors.
The apprenticeship helped me in ways I did not expect, including learning to be more patient and listen to the whispers and current of how nature speaks.
Jen is a fun, knowledgeable and easygoing teacher, she also has the ability to get real serious and ask of her students what is required in the moment without being apologetic.
She has a strong commitment to her family and the earth that supports her students in taking the work deeper into our own lives and our communities.
This is a longer journey of really embracing what we may or may not have inherited in terms of how we currently connect, and commune with the natural world, but we all come from earth-honouring peoples. Blessings on your journey.

White Pine is well known as the Tree of Peace. We will connect with the wisdom and gifts of White Pine during the sacred time of year known as Imbolc, Brigid’s Day, and Candlemas. This is the time of year when the seeds begin to stir underground and we contemplate what it is that we want to plant for the year, both physically and symbolically.
Apprenticing with the Plants allows you to develop and strengthen a deep connection, giving you access to the wisdom and healing gifts of the Universe. Through this apprenticeship you sharpen your intuitive skills, becoming your own authority. During our six months together you will explore the questions, “Who am I? Why am I here?”, working with the Plant Spirits and other guides to encourage your evolution, while learning skills to help others on their healing journey and awakening.
During Advanced HEARTransformation, you expand on the skills from year one (or Pam Montgomery’s Plant Spirit Healing Apprenticeship), learning techniques to strengthen your practice; enlarge your container to work with more energy; and incorporate other energies into your practice.
When I first met Jen, I was not sure she would be my teacher. Looking back on that reaction, I realized my ego did not like that she was significantly younger.
But I decided to be open to the possibility. In making this choice, I opened myself to receiving great wisdom from her. I have come to relish the insights that she adds to each learning process. Jen possesses a keen mind, coupled with expansive skill mastery, and astute intuition. She always shines a new light on each subject. I heartily recommend her as a teacher.

Join us for this weekend of ceremony where we honor and are initiated by Cedar. Cedar’s Latin name Arborvitae means Tree of Life. This is a little glimpse into the importance and wisdom of this very special Tree who is known to be connected to the Ancestors. Utilizing this sacred time of year when the veils are thin between the worlds, will allow us to accentuate the healing gifts of Cedar. This is a benefit for the Organization of Nature Evolutionaries.
We will journey to Damanhur, an eco-society, in the autumn of the year to experience the depth of spirit that rises up from the land and lives within the people who have chosen to walk a path of beauty in co-creative partnership with nature. We will visit the Temples of Humankind known as the eighth wonder of the world, walk circuits to bring inner and outer balance, open our hearts to the singing of the plants, receive direct transmission from the cosmic forces, deeply commune with the Sacred Woods, let our nature evolutionary selves emerge through clay sculpting as well as engage in a Greenbreath session within the Temples.
Indigenous healers have connected with Plant Intelligence since the beginning of time. Now you have an opportunity to learn how to easily communicate with Plants in your everyday life for a source of healing, guidance and wisdom.
During this weekend you will interact with Plants, learn various ways of communicating with them (including hearing them sing through the Music of the Plants instrument), and discover your personal Plant Ally. This Plant is your doorway to an intimate relationship with the Plant World and ultimately, with yourself.
Humans have an innate ability to communicate with Plants, though we have mostly forgotten how to do this. In this fun and informative workshop, we will begin to remember how to communicate with the Plants as we once did intuitively.
Plant communication enhances our well being, offers solutions, guides us on our soul’s path and helps us deepen our relationship with nature.
In honor and recognition of Trees of Life, Brigid’s Way is joining the Organization of Nature Evolutionaries (ONE) and For a Tree in holding a global Tree Gratitude and Blessing Ceremony at Heart Springs Sanctuary. Unite with thousands of others throughout the world in restoring balance with our environment, and reconciling humanity’s relationship with trees.
The Way of the Butterfly is created to help you experience the Sacred and step into your Full Being, your Wholeness through the ceremonies and the guidance of the Sacred Plants. Ceremony opens the doorways to possibilities and allows you to experience the realities beyond your daily life, experience healing, and touch Wholeness. The Plants say, “The time is now.” The Earth needs you to be who you are meant to be and live the AWE-some life you were born for. Through the culmination of this transforming experience, you will own your power as Goddess.
Unfurl your wings and step into your FULLness
