We are all teachers, givers, healers and activists. This is a community-led gathering and all attendees are offering up a gift to the community. Please look into your self and find something to offer, to gift. Challenge yourself with something new or rest into something you're already good at. Simple or complex, all gifts are awesome!

Also, as a community I am asking for help in 2 areas, we all clean up together and that every attendee join the dishwashing (or kitchen help) team for two meals. (sign ups on site)
There is a fantastic dishwashing room and we have so much fun doing it!!

Gwen has worked as an integral part of the Northern California Women’s Herbal Symposium from its inception 32 years ago, playing a variety of roles from site manager, organizer to teacher. For years women from that community have been wanting to gather together in the winter. Hence, the birth of Medicine Basket which will be including our sons, brothers, fathers and other beloved men in our community.
Gwen utilizes sound, light languages of healing and channeling to navigate the vast inner realms of consciousness and opens the doorway for others to explore the healing that comes with this deep exploration.
Gwen has been a student of Kundalini energy for more than ten years, working both privately and in a variety of groups. Through her deep kundalini meditation practice she has gained invaluable insights into working effectively and safely with this energy. She has learned vital skills in navigating and utilizing the heightened energetic sensitivities, which come from increased Kundalini energy.
12 years ago Gwen experienced a Kundalini Awakening crisis, a state of enhanced energetic awareness and sensitivity without stability, clarity or understanding. This led her on a powerful personal journey of integration and deep self-exploration with this potent work. She now works with others, assisting and supporting their journey of opening, assimilation and integration of energetics using visionary journey work for those seeking divine union. Also drawing on her 25 years experience as a hands on body worker and energetic healer.
