Full Day Training on Medicinal Plant Use and Traditional Healing, 2017 


The mentoring is usually done for healer initiates or those using plants as part of their practice but anyone who has passion in the healing knowledge I can teach. This is one on one training.

The training will occur first at the Faraday muti market in Johannesburg,where we can buy samples of medicines and discuss Traditional Medicine dynamics there, then we go through to Klipriviersberg nature reserve (Mondeor South JHB) to engage nature and plants in living form.
