I'm Colleen Sperati - dedicated Plant Spirit Medicine Practitioner. My journey into Plant Spirit Medicine was born out of a search for my life's purpose. After graduating from UNC Chapel Hill, I found it difficult to acquire a job using my science degree that included contact with or immersion in the natural world. I ended up working in jobs ranging from human resources to land conservation. While these jobs offered good pay and solid benefits, I felt unfulfilled. My days were spent daydreaming about what it would be like to LOVE my work. So in an effort to change that aspect of my life, I took a leap of faith. I left my job, enrolled in the Blue Ridge Naturalist program in Asheville, NC and became the part-time pastry chef at Luna's Living Kitchen. It was a time of serious soul searching. That's when I was given a book that would change my life... Plant Spirit Medicine by Eliot Cowan. I felt as if I had been reunited with an old flame burning inside me. In the pages of the book, I found my calling and began the journey into healing myself and others by reconnecting with the natural world in a way I never dreamed possible.
After 2 years of study, I graduated from the Plant Spirit Medicine healer training program at the Blue Deer Center in Margaretville, NY and became recognized as a Lay Spiritual Healer by the Temple of Sacred Fire Healing.
I began this journey to answer a calling. What emerged was not only my life's purpose, but a deep understanding of my own heart's knowing. I have learned that the plants have something to offer everyone, whether you have a green thumb or have never owned a plant; whether you believe in the existence of spirit or disregard the very notion; whether you have hope or have given up. I know this because I have been a recipient of this medicine for years and because I have seen it transform the lives of many others. So, should you be called to experience the treatments for yourself, it would be my great honor and privilege to connect you with Plant Spirit Medicine and the incredible plant spirits who have helped bring me into a life of wholeness, balance and deep joy.
