The School of Earth Medicine is designed as a resource for women to connect with like-hearted women, navigate life’s ups and downs, embrace the power of nature, cultivate an open heart, and carve her own unique way in this world.
What you’ll find here are events, workshops, retreats, that provide you with a myriad of tools, experiences, and knowledge to support you on your path.
School of Earth Medicine offers events that typically weave together of Earth-Based practices such as yoga, meditation, mindfulness, botanical medicine, reflection, and connection to nature. By offering a variety of experiences, we encourage students to pay attention to the cause and effect of tools, practices, and techniques we teach—so students can decide for themselves what is useful in cultivating health, happiness, and freedom.
In simplest terms it’s a calling to connect to the beauty, wisdom, and healing power of the Earth….and also recognizing that we ourselves are made of Earth and we can be medicine for the Earth through our actions, words, and presence.
Earth Medicine isn’t just a school. It’s a movement. A way of being. A gathering of warriors coming together to create micro and macro change. We welcome mothers, career women, caregivers, creatrixes, artists—all of us together from all backgrounds and all walks of life to co-create a something unique together.

About the Founder
Hi I’m Laura—I'm the founder of this budding organization known as the School of Earth Medicine. The intention of the organization is to create a space for women to grow and transform together—with the aim to create more harmony in our own lives and in the world around us.
What would be worth doing even if you failed?
With over a decade of experience practicing yoga and years of experience as a teacher, healer, and retreat facilitator, in the Spring of 2017 the School of Earth Medicine was ‘birthed.’ It all started when I asked myself a simple question. “What would be worth doing even if I failed?” Earth-Based women’s gatherings was the what I got. In the Fall of 2017 we offered our first gathering…and my friends who are closest to me know we were going to do it whether we had one person or 200.
My message to women through our offerings is this: Develop your strengths. Take steps to build your dreams. The world needs you to be you.
My aim is to create gatherings where women connect. Where we become allies and cheerleaders for each other. Where we realize we are in this together. And we can laugh and discover the lightness and joy even through challenges.
With all my love,
