Our history began in 2016, the expression of our founder’s dream to create an international group with shared values and love of plants, coming together to honour the plants, to support each other and to spread the work of Sacred Plant Medicine. Carole’s expression of Sacred Plant Medicine was informed by her background as a medical herbalist and her trainings in the Beauty Way Tradition passed to her by Arwyn DreamWalker (lineage carrier for Grandfather Tom Wilson of the Dineh people) together with European/Celtic shamanism. Her dream was inspired by the plants and by the passion and commitment of her dedicated apprentices. The Goddess Airmid was a guiding force since the beginning and our first meeting took place during the workshop ‘Airmid and the Dream of the Plants’.
Carole hosted the inaugural meeting at Derrynagittah in 2016. Group name changed to Foundation for Sacred Plant Medicine (FSPM). Instigation of biannual newsletter (Bealtaine & Samhain). Circle of Elders assigned to Medicine Wheel with corresponding roles.
