Grief support with Plant Medicine and Complementary Therapies from my book, A Fragrant Memory
with Sara Jo Holmes BS RA LMT NCBTMB

" The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not 'get over' the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal, and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again, but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same nor would you want to" This is a quote from Elisabeth Kubler-Ross from the book: On Grief and Grieving by Elisabeth Kubler-Ross and David Kessler, 2005. This quote says everything we need to know about grief except how to continue on and make life bearable. It feels totally unbearable when you lose someone you love!

I found through my life experiences how to work through grief with aromatherapy, massage, meditation, energy work, nature escapes, and journaling. I had tried counselling, medication, and many other traditional methods for healing but nothing was working. Using aromatherapy was the beginning of my transition back to a full life. Through this teleseminar and my handout with aromatherapy blends and other ideas, I hope you will be able to find your way too.

2017 AIA Conference was a Huge Success!

I want to thank you for inviting me to speak at your conference.

It was such an impressive weekend and I am thrilled beyond  belief that there was such a deep and authentic conversation about ecological impacts how we are working with plant medicines.

I enjoyed not only meeting participants and practitioners but also appreciated the caliber of presenters you had over the three days.

Congratulations of a successful event and thank you for hosting so graciously.
