Connecting with Nature

It’s important in the healing of the womb that women establish a connection with nature by creating a garden, foraging or spending time in nature. The more you connect and give reverence to nature, the more you understand the mysteries of the plant world, the nature of plants and thereby how they heal our mind, body and soul.

Also important in the healing process is listening to your body and using your intuitive power as a wombman to know what your body needs and what herbs work best for you.
