                                                                  "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 power and wisdom for our wellbeing and growth.

Each 'Pillar of Medicine' governs a different aspect of our being. They unfold in a specific sacred order, a natural sequence, through our lives. These cyclical phases are continuously in motion, within ourselves and all of nature. 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.

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.

This intensive will explore "The Cedar Teachings" that correspond with "The Five Pillars of Medicine".

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.
