CLICK BELOW FOR CLASSES AND HEALING SESSIONS

I share from my Romani Irish Lineage as well as share with explicit permission from my own native & indigenous teachers. We emphasize the arching common earth honoring traditions as we ground our experience through direct embodied experience.

At SEG we base our center altar in our classes as a collective altar supporting and incorporating spirituality and cultures from all over the world to support the inclusive commitment that we are dedicated to at SEG.

In our circles, programs & training we include readings from indigenous, tribal and poc healer and leaders that share their direct wisdom & guidance to support cultural diversity. When we can we bring guest native & poc leaders to share as well.

 ACCESS HEALING

At Sacred Earth Guardians we believe all people deserve access to healing and herbalism. As part of our commitment to this we offer sliding scale in our sessions and classes. It is primarily available to people of color, natives and lgbtq.

It can also be open to those of disability or with some other cases. We can not give access to everyone or free sessions and classes as we do need to be able to sustain ourselves at SEG so we can't give away all of our classes & sessions.

 

Read below for the diagram created by Alexa Cunningham and link to learn more about our process about access and sliding scale for SEG.

sliding scale policy and how it works.

 

WHY ACCESS HEALING?

For those that do not understand why the priority goes to people of color and natives is because this community has been the main community systemically oppressed and a majority not being able to afford classes and healing compared to the majority of white people that have ability to access healing and classes.

Based off my own personal work and speaking to the voiced needs of the poc community I am committed as a white person to make healing accessible and call more white people to shift their practices to being more inclusive and accessible rather then only those with privilege to gain healing and community healing circles and apprenticeships.
