"What you seek is seeking you!"   ~ Rumi

This five week process is a beautiful immersion into ‘medicine’ on all levels of our lives. We learn the five universal principles that are always operating in all of life, and how to harness their wisdom for our wellbeing and growth.

Each 'pillar of medicine' governs a different aspect of our being. They unfold in a sacred order, a natural sequence, through our lives. These cyclical phases are continuously in motion. We don't need to re-invent the wheel to expand in our potential. We simply need to use the momentum of these natural cycles to carry us into a more enriching, fascinating and enhanced way of life. The codes for health are in nature.

“This work gave my life a map I didn’t even realise I was looking for!” ~ Lisa Saven


This work offers insight into the working of all things, the grand cycles of the universe to our personal patterns. The knowledge can be applied in any modality and supports us to move beyond where we thought possible. It enhances our experience of life and allows us to be more empowered and effective.

What you get in this course:
- A weekly preparation mail to prepare for for the upcoming Pillar of Medicine
- A file with the video with a slideshow for each Pillar of Medicine while I guide you through the content that will be sent with Wetransfer

- Transcription of the video/ slide presentations so you have this content in written form

- 20 minute music set that allows you to listen and move through the rhythmical expression of each Pillar
- A follow up mail after the video and audio content to guide your awareness through the week according to the Pillar we are working with

As we move through this profound yet simple journey you will gain an understanding of each pillar of medicine, how it is personally effective in your life, and how to use this navigation tool to deeply heal, inspire and ignite your life.

The content of this course is prerecorded to allow convenience for downloading and going through it in your own time, regardless of where you are in the world. Content is received online once a week over a five week period, as we immerse in one Pillar of Medicine per week.

This intensive will explore "The Cedar Teachings" that correspond with "The Five Pillars of Medicine". These share the five universal allocations of medicine across all natural bodies, from cells to plants, humans to the planet as a whole. We come to understand the harmonic alignment of these principles and how we can gain support from other realms of being to cultivate our most powerful and beautiful expression.

The "Five Pillars of Medicine” is a body of wisdom that came through plant and dream teachings after completing a traditional initiation in Southern Africa. Lila was shown that, “There are only five pillars of medicine. And all medicine, across all time, fits into these pillars”. The teaching proceeded to stream through, showing her the five modes of medicine, the ancient and current systems that use them, and how we draw on them instinctively in our daily lives. This body of knowledge forms a deep medicinal tool, from personal to cosmic contexts.
