Course Description

Embarking on a plant medicine journey can be a deeply transformative experience. To make the most of this sacred opportunity, careful and responsible preparation is necessary for your well-being. In this course, Nina will guide you through an exploration of the essential steps and considerations necessary for a safe, meaningful, and profound plant medicine journey.

You will learn why intention setting is so important, how to choose the right medicine for your journey, what set and setting really mean, who you can trust to lead you on this journey and so much more. So don’t miss this learning opportunity instead of learning through your mistakes as I did.

Through a step-by-step process, you will be guided on how to set clear intentions and ask for the sources of your healing. Enjoy a guided meditation to connect with your multidimensional Self and prepare for your plant medicine ceremony.
