Shamanic Plant Medicine Journey Beginning November 18, 2023 Live Online!



It is widely accepted that medicinal plants contain powerful energies for healing the physical body. Less understood is their equally powerful spiritual capacity for healing and transformation both personally and planetarily. Now more than ever, we need the healing power of nature and in particular the sacred medicine plants.


Join us on this transcendent journey and path of healing as we connect deeply with our green allies, discovering their personal wisdom and guidance for our lives and our communities. In each monthly class, we will journey with a different plant that will guide our work together for that session. We will:


🌱  Introduction to the Shamanic Plant Journey
🌱  Journey with a different plant each month to embrace that plant’s energies and unique lessons
🌱  Learn how plants communicate and how to hear their messages
🌱  Connect with the Plant Spirits through drumming and meditation
🌱  Create a Healing Plant Altar
🌱  Learn the spiritual, energetic, and medicinal properties of 9 different herbs
🌱  Learn the wisdom and lessons of 9 unique sacred medicine plants
🌱  Learn to work with plants to balance the chakras

🌱  Learn a powerful Rose Plant Spirit Healing ceremony
🌱  Heal with the plants utilizing Plant Elixirs
🌱  Create healing art
🌱  Learn to bring the plant’s energies into your daily life and communities
🌱  Learn to trust the urgings and messages of the Plant Spirits
🌱  Work with the Music of the Plants as another form of communication and renewal
🌱  Grow together and connect with others to create a supportive community
In each monthly class we will work with the Spirit and healing wisdom of a specific plant, engaging deeply with their energies for healing and transformation:

🌿 Mugwort – Clearing the neural pathways / Opening Our Psychic Centers
🌿 Rose – Embracing Love Self / Opening the Heart and High Heart Energy Centers
🌿 Burdock – Digging Deep to Unearth Our Treasures
🌿 Dandelion – Embracing Growth & Transformation
🌿 Poison Ivy – Healing the Wild & the Power of Trickster Medicine
🌿 Plantain – Releasing Blocks to Growth
🌿 Lilac – Cultivating Joy
🌿 Motherwort – Healing the “Mother Wound”
🌿 Jewelweed – Manifesting Our Purpose

Each class will take place live, online, and be recorded. A private online forum will be available for community building and interaction and instructor support in-between class sessions.

This is a rare opportunity to reclaim our sacred birthright and to crack open the door on interspecies communication. This transformative work enables us to be pioneers in creating a new world, one of co-creatorship, cooperation, community, and heart directed consciousness and action. This 8-class course will meet once a month from 12pm-3:30pm online. All sessions will be recorded so you do not need to be present for each session.

The cost for this unique transformational work is $895. Payment plans are available. A $150 deposit is required to hold your space To register by mail, send a check to: Green Girl Herbs & Healing, PO Box 1236, Hopewell Junction, NY 12533

What others have said about this class:

“Over the past year + I have taken 2 of Karine’s classes: Sacred Heart of Herbalism 1 and Shamanic Plant Medicine. Karine is incredibly knowledgeable and extremely supportive in the learning process. Her classes have opened my eyes to the plant world in so many ways; I pay more attention to the natural world around me, I’m able to identify more plants and their medicinal benefits, and I have a stronger spiritual connection to the earth. This has helped me to share the magic of nature with my students and my own children, which is so vital for our future generations.”

Vanessa Spiegel


“Karine Gordineer is such a skilled and experienced teacher who truly embodies her work with plants. In her Shamanic Plant Spirit class, we were guided into a relationship with one plant each month. Each class was a beautiful journey in itself, from learning a plant’s history to its healing benefits and then moving into a shamanic meditation to connect with it more deeply. She offers lovely practices to continue the connection in between monthly gatherings. Any of Karine’s classes will change the way you look at the plant beings in our world and bring you closer to understanding that we are interconnected with and dependent upon each one. When you begin to gently communicate with them through Karine’s teachings and practices, they will communicate back to you in ways that will delight and surprise you.”

Claudia Gukeisen, Ayurvedic Practitioner, Rhinebeck, NY


“You are a fantastic teacher, Karine. Your knowledge and wisdom are amazing, and the way that you teach is quite lovely. Thank you for sharing your learnings…. You are amazing.”

Donna Moyers, Shamanic Practitioner


“Entering into the world of plants and herbs through this course is one of the most amazing events in my life. Plant communication has provided a pathway of understanding to the energy of healing from plants under the guidance of Karine, a great teacher.”

Elizabeth Matheson,
Shamanic Practitioner and Artist


“I had a great time with all involved in this heart-centered, lovely class. Karine is a fabulous teacher with so much wonderful knowledge she joyously shares with all her students. In short, I enjoyed all the experiences with Shamanic Plant Medicine Journey; making medicines, Music of the Plants, crafts, and all the wonderful people in class.”


“This course was a great opening into the spiritual world of plants and all beings in nature. I feel much more connected to Mother Earth. Thank you!!”
