If you are an herb lover why not take your love a step further into the realm of Herb Spirit medicine?  The Amethyst Center is home to 65 medicinal herbs and medicine trees in a relatively small area   Here you’ll be able to meet and learn many medicinals up close and personal in a variety of sacred power spots where Nature and Azurae has planted them.  You’ll use shamanic chakra breath work to grock (shapeshift into) their energy patterns and communicate with them. This way you can gain information about how they will work with you and receive healing directly fron their energy patterns?   From your herb totems you will learn how to work with it, how it can help you most and receive a healing dispensation from it!  How cool is that?  

Using dowsing and muscle testing we’ll find your plant/herb totems for the seven directions of the medicine wheel.  (East - Spiritual, South - Emotional, West – Physical, North - Mental, Above Beings, Mother Earth and Divine Center). Then we visit that living plant for a direct shamanic experience exchaning energies, listening for messages and gathering healing from the herbs and plants.  Azurae, who is a n awardwinning shamanic journey leader will take you take you on a deeply healing shamanic journey and initiatory experience to your main plant totem which you one you will be focusing on for the next year. And finally you will make medicine bundles of your plant totems for you mesa which is used in healing ceremony.. 11 am – 6:00 pm   $100


 Why do we need to Know Herb Spirit Medicine?
 
The incoming energies of solar flares, computers, cell phones, Earth changes and the fear factory media conspire to short circuit our natural healing abilities and our health.  We can push out and clear our heavy fearful trauma energies easily with the guidance and support we find in Nature Spirit Energy Medicine, herbs, trees and plants!   The Amethyst Center is the perfect place to do this and to learn many useful techniques that were direct gifts from Nature Spirit to Azurae to be used right now to Shift up into body/mind/spirit health and soul ascension and to help Mother Earth.  It’s truly a life changing experience!

 Special Guest Herbalist & Planetary Muscian                   Dave Mascatello

Dave Mascatello, also known as "Organic Man," is musician, poet, booking agent, music promoter, & a teacher of natural medicines that help to heal the mind, body, & spirit. Dave has explored the infinite possibilities of the universe and realized that nature is the best way to connect with ones' self and surroundings. After experiencing unsuccessful treatments and misdiagnoses from doctors, Dave was able to heal himself from depression through the usage of medicinal plants. One in particular, ginseng, was very influential in his early process. While working produce in a grocery store, he met someone who introduced him to the ginseng root, which brought powerful healing to him and opened his eyes to the possibilities that natural medicine could offer. Through working with produce, Dave was able to see the vast diversity in the plant kingdom as he stocked fruits and vegetables and learned what the term "organic" meant. From there, he explored many different superfoods and superherbs including cacao, maca, spiralina, reishi mushroom & other medicinal mushrooms, holy basil, turmeric, & ginger only to name a few. After working in the grocery store, Dave started his business, Planetary Music, which is a booking agency and music promotional company. Using this as a vehicle, he's been able to travel and learn about organic gardening and plant medicines that have been helping humankind restore itself to the natural way of things. Dave gives talks on superfoods, superherbs, and foraging and also channels healing energy through his music, as a creative way to connect to spirit and the people in the world around him. Dave will be sharing some of his organic Nature Spirit Music with us throughout the day and at a Mystic Gardeners Gathering after the workshop at 7 pm.  !

 Azurae has hundreds of satisfied students:   
                              
“I have been honored to be an apprentice to Azurae Windwalker, and learn healing techniques of the Cherokee.  One of the good things about being apprenticed to Azurae, is knowing she is always available to answer questions or concerns while on the shamanic path.  Her knowledge and understanding have helped me through difficult situations, that then increased my understanding of metaphysical concepts.  Being led through her intense journeys has resulted in profound insights and emotional and spiritual healing.  Azurae's continuous encouragement has helped me remember my personal power, and to apply it to the healing of myself and others.  Her focus on teaching to heal Nature locally, and around Mother Earth, connects these loving energies to all people with the same intent, and thereby helps to counteract the destruction that is so apparent at this time.
