HEATHER SAGE ~ is an alchemist and deep adaptation guide who believes that in this time of potent planetary and humxn transformation, we are each being called to adapt – in deep and emergent ways – to radical changes.

Connection to earth, eros, embodiment, and community strengthens the ground from which we evolve, and resource us through underworld journeys and the real work and art of healing. Heather’s offerings are sourced from these wells. She is a certified Functional Herbalist who weaves an ecstatic love of evolutionary astrology with the rich science and intuitive art of herbalism in her Astro-Herbal readings and medicines. Through her creative umbrella Aptus Alchemy, Heather creates medicines, rituals, and embodiment experiences to nourish and support these transformations, guided by careful listening to plants, soma, and planetary movements. www.aptusalchemy.com.

Erin Anderson ~ believes humans are exquisite creatures of infinite potential with a curious habit of forgetting our divine nature.

She also teaches mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques that incorporate creative visualization and sound therapy. Erin’s favorite form of self-care is spellcraft. Her childhood hero is Teela Na (the Sorceress of Grayskull), and she opens doors very slowly to make sure she doesn’t topple unsuspecting faeries. Remarkably, she considers herself a skeptic.
