Megan is joyously overwhelmed by the beauty of the natural world. A forever student of plants, she is dedicated to learning and growing the medicines of her bioregion as a way to cultivate healing within her community. She uses movement as a tool for grounding into one’s deeper truths – a daily dance practice keeps her spirits and awareness high. She unequivocally loves what it means to be human and believes in the power of ritual and ceremony as a way to tap into an individual’s uniquely beautiful gifts. Utilizing her gifts of warmth, presence, and playfulness, Megan functions as the Land by Hand community pollinator – sharing and tapping into the abundance of energy, ideas and wisdom in our human ecosystems.

We will also be connecting with many others to teach and share throughout the program on a wide variety of subject matter. It is encouraged that Apprentices will also contribute from their own experience whenever relevant. Teacher/Facilitator training is built into this program so we can all communicate and share these skills with others more effectively.
