The School of Earth Medicine is designed specifically to support women on their path to self-discovery, healing, empowerment, transformation and leadership.
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 is a weaving of Earth-Based practices such as yoga, meditation, mindfulness, botanical medicine, reflection, connection to nature, and shamanism. 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.
Creating Change from the Inside Out:
-We aim to infuse leadership, environmental sustainability, and compassion through every step we take.
-We purchase local and organic foods (98%) for our events
-We actively seek out new ways we can reduce our environmental footprint by using recycled paper, non-toxic office supplies, etc
-We donate a percentage of every purchase to the Malala Fund—an education activist for girls in Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, and other regions girls miss out on secondary education. Learn more about Malala's movement here.

About the Founder
Hi I’m Laura—I'm the founder of this budding organization known as the School of Earth Medicine. I care about women’s empowerment. I care about the state of the environment. I truly believe it is time for women to step-up, support each other and BE the change.
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 with a simple question. I remember asking myself, “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,
