About The Teacher
Hi my name is Sondra Hamilton I am a Mystic Herbalist, and Ayurvedic Health Counselor who works with the wisdom and elements of Mother Nature including: plants, stones, sacred mountains, water, air, ether, fire, water and earth. Osha Maize Herbal was born from a dream of integrating plants into medicine and empowering individuals to receive healing from the medicine outside their doors.
In 2012 I heard the calling from the plants and enrolled in a Plant Spirit Herbalist program in Denver, CO. I started to have a remembering process of healing others with plants and stones in previous lifetimes. This process led me to Peru numerous times to study with ceremonial plants, the Apus (Mountains) and Munay Ki Rites. The energy of Peru guided me to continue my plant journey at Herb Pharm and The Blue Ridge School of Herbal Medicine in Asheville, NC. In 2015 I immersed myself on the island of Kauai, Hawaii at Hale Pule where I completed a 200 hour Yoga and Ayurvedic teacher training. I continued my studies at Hale Pule completing a 600 hour Ayurvedic Health Counselor Program. After the program I had a deep calling to travel to the source of Ayurveda and immerse myself in a Panchakarma in a Ayurvedic Hospital in Southern India. My knowledge of health and healing has provided a deeper wisdom for integrating Eastern and Western healing modalities. I continue to study with wisdom keepers and maestra Estela Roman in Mexico, learning Curanderismo from Aztec and Mexican Ancestral traditions.
I have been blessed to have diverse teachers and guides on my path, which has given me the opportunity to deepen my wisdom of the original medicines of Peru, Greece and India. My love of plants, animals and Mother Earth extend into each healing session invoking a deeper evolution for self-empowerment. The land I travel teaches me the innate intuitive wisdom that resides in all of us and the importance of honoring and praising our Ancestors.
May the plants guide your way home!!!
