What you'll do

The Southwestern Medicine Women Workshop, for both men and women. Gigi will bring together several inspiring and informative hands-on classes, with a wide range of medicinal knowledge from the Maiden beginning her journey to the Crone who has lived the journeys.

The event will take place in northern region of Arizona just outside of beautiful Sedona AZ. Days are posted that are available.

In life, this process is learning to “go with the flow.”

The schedule "may include", remember each woman is different & each journey is sacred and will change:
- Morning gathering, with meet and greet and questions.
- We will then do a desert walk, identifying plants, learning their true medicinal values, and learning how to make your own plant medicine.
- Finding with plant connects to your true authentic self.
- Learn about plant essences and how you can use them
- Preparing herbal snacks
- Creating your own smudge bundle and why it's important to protect some of the desert plants

Where you'll be

We will conduct our workshop on our desert property. Water sounds from the pond and teachings in the she-shed or tipi is a great way to learn. The desert and land provides many plants to learn from and experience.

Please remember, each individual is different and each experience will change from another. Being flexible and going with the flow is true form of growth.

What an amazing experience! My girlfriend and I felt completely enthralled by Gigi and her incredible knowledge. We enjoyed the hike around her home learning about the properties of the plants that surround her in the desert. She showed us how to make healing remedies that were unique to our personal needs. So much fun. Loved it.

This was such a special experience! It was uniquely tailored to myself and my friend who attended and to what plants were growing at the time. We even made a tea from freshly plucked plants to help with my friend's allergy flare, right then and there. I've studied botanical medicine in the textbook and formal education sense. This was both educational but also much more spiritual, physical and hands-on. I felt encouraged and supported in this wonderful class with Gigi. I will definitely be back!

Gigi is an absolutely amazing human! Not only did we have a great experience learning skills from a gifted teacher, Gigi is so lovely and truly authentic, and simply getting to hang out with her was a gift. The pooches, Ares and Aspen, made the experience that much more enjoyable for this dog lover. Overall, a beautiful experience and a lovely place to go and feel a release- a place you can just be you with no judgement while learning new things.

Sacred and personal, Joyful and informative. This experience was an opportunity to get to know yourself more through the beauty of nature all while Gigi invited, informed and challenged you to look at the obvious in a new way. I’m so grateful for the education and wisdom.
