Artistry, Education & Ceremony for Body, Mind and Spirit


Join with me, as we enter into a balanced relationship with nature and ourselves. The foundation for my practice is based on Animism, it is the root from which my art, voice and services grow. 

I work with plants as botanical ingredients to support emotional healing, including grief work and rituals for self care. I share information about healing and the value of nature, through workshops, services and ceremony.  

The artistry I share is expressed through the writing and illustration of story, the blending of botanical oils, and photography. 

 Appointments can be taken using digital platforms with facetime & zoom. Workshops are available in person. 

Workshops and Training 

Professional training with topics focused on self care & grief, making smoke bundles and talking about Animism. Information can be customized for any size group, presented digitally or in-person.

The Art of Storytelling 

 Through the adventures of a cat named Avery Finn, we gently explore ways to talk about death, make new friends and have adventures. Schedule an in person reading or a digital story hour using the book online tab. Follow Avery in real life on tiktok@averyfinn1.

Ministry & Ceremony

I teach workshops about the practice of Animism and use of ceremonial plants. I also provide support for life/death transitions with ceremony and ritual. Inspired posts through Instagram@five28_hz.


My passion for plants and their healing abilities drive the alchemy for infusing aromatic and botanical support for skin and soul. Hand blended herbs steeped in botanical oils are shared seasonally (see botanical formulations).  Workshops about plants we use to heal can be scheduled thru the Book online tab. Information about plants and uses for healing found in Instagram posts.

Nature is a teacher of mine and I often work with her tools (plants) to unite healing with ceremony. The chemistry plants produce for health and healing is what we use in aromatherapy as medicine to heal our body, mind and spirit.

 Our breath connects us intimately with plants, through the exchange of oxygen & carbon dioxide. Plants and fungi share their bodies with us both as food and medicine, and if to complete a cycle, our flesh is returned to nature in death. The more I observe plants and ecosystems, the more I believe we humans might learn from their 700 million years of successful evolution on this planet

My practice uses skills from aromatherapy, esthetics, animist ministry, artistry, death midwifery, social justice and environmental advocacy.


Services and workshops use our senses to refocus our attention on nature as a means to help heal our Selves & each other. 

The journey we all will take, to heal our communities and planet, begins by looking within
