About The Event
Join herbalist and ordained minister Nicole Iaquinto to discuss the spiritual properties of plants as well as explore ways to deepen your intuitive relationship with them. Attendees are encouraged to have a plant or plant material nearby (a houseplant, dried herbs, or even a freshly brewed cup of tea will suffice). You will learn some tips and tricks for making and reflecting on these life-changing connections with plants. An interactive webinar like this is meant to only be the start of a conversation, and if you leave with more questions than answers, you'll know you're on the right path to becoming a plant-partner.
Rev. Nicole Iaquinto is an herbalist and the Senior Pastor at Cambridge Drive Community Church in Goleta, CA. At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, many of her friends asked for herbal remedies to aid in boosting their immunity, helping them sleep and to reduce stress and anxiety, so she founded Forest Floor Herbals. She has been independently studying primarily western herbalism for the last 4 years, but has also started taking classes through Artemisia Academy in 2022.
Nicole has a Master of Divinity and also holds degrees in public policy, African American and African studies, and education. She believes there is a Divine Energy (call it Spirit if you will), transcending all religions and faith traditions, linking all things in Creation together. Ever since she was a small child, Nicole has been looking for ways to tap into that Divine Energy. She finds it helps one become more connected to the land and people around them, leading them to become more empathetic and aware. Due to her introverted and empathic nature, she finds herself outside most of the time, hiking, gardening, talking to plants, and dreaming up ways to bring herbalism into her social justice work.
