About The Teacher

Hi friends, my name is Natasha and I am an advocate for Mother Earth and all her magic and healing. Before embracing this life path, I received a college degree in Sociology and continued an education in law. I worked in New York as attorney until deciding to follow her life path of plant medicines and nature. This wasn't a cut and dry decision, as life pushed me to follow my heart. My life felt unfulfilled. I fell into a kind of depression from being in the concrete jungle of New York .. also a bit of heartache surrounded me.
I have lost many family members and friends at young ages... people who were working hard to build their foundation so they could begin to travel the world. What pushed me to begin my journey was the death of a childhood friend, younger than me, who was killed violently in Florida by someone she should have been able to trust. Wait, no more. All I have is now. All there is, is NOW. My depression was lingering and I knew I needed to do something. I knew New York was not the place for me. I sold all my things, quit my job.. and traveled to the jungle for healing.. to heal with sacred medicines.. to meet Mother Ayahuasca. She helped me remember all the love I ever need is inside of me, I was born with it.. she reminded me I had been disconnected and I needed to reconnect to Mother Earth. It was so healing, I brought my mother to have her own journey a few months later. I began a blog of my plant medicine journeys (which I am still updating from diary entries). I am now in Peru learning from plant medicines and shamans; I organize retreats for all those wanting their own healing.. wanting to connect back to Mother Earth. All we need is already within us. I love to travel, but have found the most fulfilling journey I've embarked on, was and is, the journey within.
I currently work very closely with kambo medicine in Peru and the United States, sharing its healing power with all who are called. I have much more to learn from the Amazon. There are so many wondrous healing plants and animals that I wish to know, learn, and share.
My work continues every day as there is always more magic of this Earth she is discovering.
I feel a strong purpose to help people connect back to Mother Earth- through nature, the medicinal plants and animals ... and to not forget about the spirit world.
