Meet the Herbalists:
Bekki Winters studied Clinical Herbalism & Ayurveda at the Hawthorn Institute in Ashland, Oregon at the young age of 20 years old. However, her devotion to plants and people goes far beyond her education and had been a life-long passion. She embraces the belief that herbal medicine is much more than “this herb treats that symptom“ which is an allopathic or western medicine approach. Instead she believes it is an intuitive art that requires communication and connection to the plants as well as the patient. Her approach is to understand the subtle energetic language of the plant to help decipher it’s medicinal value, while assessing the individual or patient's energetics. This allows Bekki to better determine suitable herbs for the patient's unique constitution and to create individualized herbal formulas.
She believes everything in our external environment impacts our internal environment and in order to reach our healthiest state of being, we must seek out and maintain a balance between the two. Bekki practices and applies the ancient, self-healing techniques of Ayurveda, which involves using simple techniques to restore balance to a person’s inner and outer ecologies. She has a passion for aligning people with their “dharma”, or personal philosophy. This assists them in attaining a state of self love, balance, and prosperity along with finding harmony within their whole being -body, consciousness, and spirit. Healing begins with awareness and one's own intuition. Her goal is to empower people to tap into their innate self-healing abilities and take their health into their own hands. By providing the necessary tools and resources such as herbs, movement, nutritional guidance, and lifestyle practices, lasting changes may be achieved.
