Wildcrafting: Plant Spirit Medicines
We offer courses in Plant Spirit Medicines where we travel students into rainforest or alpine areas to study medicinal plants and trees within the context of wildcrafting. Participants are introduced to wild medicine plant propagation methods that link Earth energies, harvesting and stewardship practices all driven by wild dynamics. Participants are introduced to the art of alchemy that includes exploration into historical blending practices that includes fermentation, extracts, teas and topicals. We dwell within a remote deep rainforest where water energies interact with ecosystems that present unique sentient power that demonstrate how a forest can become a healer of most afflictions.

Wild Stories.....
Why the World needs Wildcrafting
Wildcrafting is a practice integrating local ecological knowledge, family and land history, conscious harvesting, land stewardship, activism, and storytelling all into one lovely practice.  Practice may be an understatement, for Wildcrafting is a way of complete being, a framework by which to exist in the world.  It is art.  It is science.  It is spirituality.

An Adventure with the Wildcraft Forest
We were assigned homework to do a report on three plants - two that are native to the interior of BC and one that is "invasive"(what a terrible term). We were also tasked with looking back, like faaaar back into our ancestry, to 5000 years ago. To imagine the life we would have lead back then. Due to how busy I've been lately, I was a tad stressed. I guess I am a bit of a perfectionist in some ways and wanted to be fully prepared. Nothing could have prepared me for the weekend (and yet everything in my life up to this point has been preparing me).

The Trail of Song:
A National Healing Forest
In conjunction with the National Healing Forest initiative the Wildcraft Forest is now embarking on an expansion called, “The Trail of Song”. Healing Forests are where survivors and families of the Residential School legacy and murdered and missing Indigenous women, as well as all Canadians, can come together to heal, do ceremony, reflect, talk or meditate. Within the Healing Forest, all individuals, including survivors and their families, can share and better understand the legacy of the residential school system and move forward in a positive way.

Seeds to Trees
At the Wildcraft Forest we plant new old growth forests Our Seeds to Trees initiative seeks to gather the ancient genetic memory found within old growth forests and then to regenerate those species in riparian ecosystems. Learn about our efforts as we create wild plant nurseries in remote areas, collect old growth seeds and then plant these treeas in remote areas. Every year we collect seeds, germinate and plant seeds and seedlings using the “old ways”.

Yasei Sanctuary Forests
The Wildcraft Forest practices regenerative forest stewardship, which includes propagating “whole forest systems”; this includes the forest over-story and the under-story. We have created a network of Yasei Sanctuary Forests which serve as protected forests where each is used as a base to protect and restore wild ecosystems while propagating wild and domesticated food and medicine crops in small wild dynamic gardens. Our Community Supported Wildcrafting (CSW) membership helps with the planting, growing, care and harvesting of wild systems; at the same time members learn various aspects of plant spirit medicines which includes Yaseiki Programs. Members might help for the day or for a few days at a time.

The Wildcraft Forest School 
The Wildcraft Forest School issues a Wildcraft Practitioners Diploma. We offer seasonal classes, seminars, fieldtrips and workshops, which provide an inspirational and creative environment for students ranging from children to adults and from beginners to professionals. For 30 years we have sought to share quality experiences, from leading edge artists, thinkers and do’ers locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Our scope is to link the arts, creativity, permaculture, food, wellness and activism with wildcrafting and the sentient Earth.

Please explore the certification programs we offer
as well as our registration information.

Green Earth Offsets supports the rewilding of places and people. There is a new generation of people eager to be lifelong stewards of wildlands on planet Earth. They seek to be part of the solution by providing the work required to restore and regenerate ecosystems as a means to strengthen the meaning and purpose that resides in their soul. The Wildcraft Forest has been supporting this effort through a growing network of Yasei Sanctuary Forests which offers participants meaning, purpose, livelihood and resilience which includes spirit, sentience, science, semiotics, stewardship and sanctuary, all linked to ancient wisdom and the natural world.

Yasei Sanctuary Forests are not only spiritual temples supported by nature, but they are providing new values, qualities and systems that are strengthening the desire for protecting standing forests as living organisms within a 300 year stewardship plan. At the Wildcraft Forest we understand that everything is connected.

The economics of cosmology and nature as a gig
A world in transition: Why you might want to embrace this training for economic reasons?
To believe in mysteries, magic and cosmology is to believe that there is a world rich in chance and intuitive synchronicity. If you want magic in your life you have to first believe that magic exists and to do this you have to let go of fate. This becomes obvious – magic never happens to those who do not open themselves up to it. Regardless of how much we want to logically prove outcomes we still cannot escape the wonders found within mysteries – which can often motivate the human experience. You might be working within the ancient healing arts, or perhaps you are in a more mainstream form of wellness practice, here’s how a Yasei Shinrin Yoku Certification can work for you.

Why we plant Wild Ginger on the other side of the road?
Human beings built a road that separates the forest. Ants are enlisted to regenerate this primeval place, but we must help them.
This is a busy time of year for us because it is when the big melt happens in the high country and we must begin our efforts to restore the forest understory and meadow habitat. We must also restore Cottonwoods and other wild species that support drainages. Clearcut logging is killing the Earth, and you and I can do what corporations, institutions and governments are not doing...we can go out and fix the damage that they have created...if we don't who will?

Time in nature helps older adults
with improved health and purpose in life
Live long and prosper - move through space between big trees and connect your brain.
The largest percentage of our Shamanic Coaching students are coming out of the hospice work sector. Our training program is slowly being recognized by many as providing powerful tools for those who are seeking to address challenges with ageing – whether it is for themselves or for others. Within our society we have a great number of people who have lived without any spiritual awakening and when they find themselves near the "end" they have no logical or peaceful approach to how they might be "beginning".

Cottonwood: Holding the Wisdom of the Cosmos
This tree is ignored because our society perceives that it has no economic value – but it does.
This condition of disregard for nature is deeply connected to our nature deficit disorder and plant blindness as we have come to ignore the need to have these trees within the world that we are part of. These very old Cottonwood trees have deep grooves in their bark which has a similar characteristic to the ancient Willows and Oaks of Europe. Druids believe that the wisdom within the entire cosmos can be found deep inside these grooves – so they are considered sacred. In wildcrafting, we explore discoveries that demonstrate a “knowing” that nature has and we seek to connect with that knowing. We explore “deep ecology”. Proponents of deep ecology believe that the world does not exist as a resource to be freely exploited by humans. The ethics of deep ecology hold that the survival of any part is dependent upon the well-being of the whole.

Daydreaming might encourage a spiritual awakening
New research provides tantalizing evidence that daydreams can shape the brain's future response to what it sees.
New research suggests that encouraging daydreaming within a forest might be very helpful to our future. Imagine that you are sitting quietly, and suddenly your brain tunes out the world and wanders to something else entirely -- perhaps a recent experience, or an old memory. You just had a daydream.

Bioregionalism: An Alternative to Globalization
Regardless of how challenging things might seem we must remember that we evolved based on our ability to cooperate and build community while strengthening our kinship with nature.
These are challenging times and they are demonstrating to us that we are continuing to grow into a violent species – which is not actually natural to humans. We evolved based on our ability to cooperate and build community while strengthening our kinship with nature. When we abandoned our natural connection to the Earth it was because we were forced to follow the path of “civilization” where the fear of demonstrating weakness became an element to MAN-AGE colonialism. This continues to this day where everyone wants to project strength because they believe that demonstrating weakness might mean that they might become prey and be eaten. It’s a behavior based on hormones and ego, which one might call “hormonics” rather than “harmonics” which holds our soul and represents a connection to our true selves, a connection directly linked to the natural world. In fact, we are human “beings” we’re not machines, nor are we cogs that fit into a machine. We are music and we are independent organic life forms, and we each own our own heartbeat but we also seek to harmonize with others.

The Spirit and Soul of Stewardship in the Forest
We are not setting aside landscapes to plant or create new wilderness parks or preserves. In other words we are not designing old growth forests from seed.
We are only trying to protect existing ones. If we don’t plan and secure the future of new old growth forests we will eventually be without them because old trees will eventually die. We still have a very temporary view of the future. When you get close to nature, when you touch it – it gets close to you. It touches you. Then everything changes within you and this experience opens you to discover the treasures hidden along the edge of the forest.
