Brigitta van Hengstum. A craving for contact with nature slipped into her consciousness when struggles in life hit her hard. She noticed that the sight of endless beauty of nature gave a sense of hope and comfort. A sense that life goes on no matter what and keeps renewing itself.
This led her on the path of plant medicine. The ancient wisdom of these plants showed her the way to go inward. She learned that that’s the only place to face pain and grief from the past, to feel, to heal and to learn to do different in the present.
