Gaia Hive is a space to blossom and heal.
I built an herbal apothecary in my home now know that talking to plants is normal and wonderful!
Part of our session that really moved me was around my ancestors and in particular grandmothers. I had a yearning to learn more of where I come from, to learn their names and somethings about them. I just got back from a trip to Newfoundland visiting my mother and we spent time milling through the family tree information that she has collected so far. I learnt that my great great grandmother was a herbalist! I gathered some pictures and stories, names and dates and am feeling inspired now to create an altar. Thank you for this suggestion. The trees continue to be amazing beloveds and messengers. I have also delved into connecting with spirit guides. I feel I am being opened more and more, there is something in me saying a big “YES” to go deeper.
A deepening on many levels
(Personal Healing Session)
For a long time I had been wanting and needing a deeper connection with women and plants. Finding Julie and her Rainbow Serpent Mentorship was like finding a sanctuary, a safe, supportive, welcoming, healing space. This past group was all women and it felt like a dream. Julie has the ability to hold space for every woman in the circle as well as the whole energy of the circle in a warm and balanced way. You feel held, comfortable, inspired and protected. After completing the mentorship, I feel more embodied within myself and have a deeper relationship with the plants, water, stones and trees around me. I love walking through the forest and being able to connect and identify different plants and what their medicine is. Being in the Rainbow Serpent Mentorship was a journey of coming home to myself, a true re-wilding and remembering. This mentorship transformed me in all ways, growth that occurred is immeasurable. It has rippled out into all areas of my life and continues to do so and I am forever grateful. If you are looking for someone to gently guide you on your folk herbalism journey, then Julie is the one for you

My experience on this sacred land was priceless and incredibly healing. The teachings and wisdom will last a lifetime. The time with supportive, like hearted community has been strong much needed medicine. Remember wherever you go, the magic and love will follow. The earth and plants will hold you up.
One of my favourite parts of the mentorship was the beginning share circle. Julie facilitated this in such an intentional and loving way. She always made it very easy for us to feel like we could be vulnerable and open up to one another. I always looked forward to arriving knowing that we would gather around the fire and begin by checking in with one another after a month apart! A second favourite thing was the solo journey time on the land. I found this to be so moving and nourishing. It allowed space for all of the parts of the day leading up to that point to sink in. I felt most receptive in these times of solitude and quiet. I felt that there were established clear and inspiring guidelines for us to feel that we could fall into the land and explore Gaia's depths!
So moving and nourishing
Weekends with the Gaia Hive have been my saving grace. The plant teachings, land, wisdom, heart, and community will stay with me. I have been inspired to live meaningfully with the plants and medicines around us. I could listen to Julie sing to the plants all day.

If you want to learn about plant medicine, this is the course to take. I have learned such a greater understanding and beauty of not only plants but of life itself. Julie's wisdom is such a blessing that I will honour forever.

The Gaia Hive is a gift from the Cosmos. It transformed my life.
My time with Julie at the Gaia Hive was a transformative experience. I had wanted to do the program in 2020 but things didn’t work out, I’m glad I did the program in 2021. It was a time where coming together in sacred circle was as important as ever. I was able to take the plants into my spirit and physical body in a way that helped my chronic stomach issues. I was also able to help my clients as I practice reiki and various forms of energy work. I believe the future is plants and reconnecting with them. The time is now to self govern what we ingest and re-discover how to connect to the land in a sustainable way. Our bodies know best how to heal, as does nature. I also want to say thanks to everyone who made the group special. Peace and love.

The most incredibly powerful & life changing re-wilding. From beginning to end this mentorship was the most mind-heart-soul expanding experience. Along with the huge bonus of meeting the most BEAUTIFUL heart centred humans to go on this journey with that I now consider great friends. Julie is a wonderful mentor full of truth, song, wisdom, humour, authenticity & joy. I didn’t think my adoration for Mother Gaia could get any deeper but it did & it continues every day.
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
The most incredibly powerful & life changing re-wilding
The part in me that remembers ancient things, that quiet voice that asks when I'll spend more time outside, in the woods, with the things that grow... that part of me is often asked to wait for an imaginary future where I live more in alignment with what feels like my true nature. Joining the Rainbow Spirit apprenticeship was an answer to that voice, a response to a lifelong call to re-wild and tune in to deeper intuitions and a slower communion with nature. Julie's gentle guidance and experiential methods are perfect for this type of heart-based learning. Each month we explored new plant allies and ways to connect in the safe spaces that she creates. These monthly trips to her beautiful paradise to connect with the earth, the group and I enriched my life in ways I could never have anticipated. I have joined this group 3 times and it is my second home.
