Having lived her adult life in New York City, Vanessa is familiar with the disconnect so many feel from the natural world. Her work, from holistic training to herbal apprenticeships and rewilding retreats, focuses on reconnection. She helps people deepen relationship with themselves and the living earth through multi-sensory experiences and events.
Interactive presentations and workshops illustrate that we don’t need to escape the city to find nature, nature is here. These programs re-awaken the power of plants as a way to impact the mind, body and soul.
Taking care of the Earth is taking care of ourselves. These workshops offer practical and sustainable solutions to live a life in harmony with the Earth, moving away from obligation, to an act of love.
Through her work as a professional fighter, meditation practitioner and holistic educator Vanessa has created Sacred Warrior Training, which brings together therapeutic movement, boxing, mindfulness practice and herbalism into a singular experience. Training can be tailored to any community.
