RITES OF THE HEALER
This series is an expression of my journey with the Sacred Plant Medicine of Aotearoa, New Zealand. The Rites of the Healer is an on-going creative project associated with training I undertook as part of a Medicine Woman Apprenticeship through the Medicine Woman Centre for Shamanic and Escoteric Studies. This is an initiatory process facilitated through actively working with the 36 teacher plants that hold the keys to the opening of the portals of power for the healer and shaman in the 21st century. These artworks are my interpretations of three of the twelve magical rites of passage of the healer, which are the feature in the Certificate of Healer’s Studies.
