On Campus Program

Tantric Herbalism and Alchemy Nature’s Wisdom for the Mind

RECONNECT TO THE POWER OF THE NATURAL WORLD

Join herbalist and yoga therapist Brooke Sullivan for a retreat that blends science and spirit to support individual empowerment and collective healing. Tantric Herbalism is a method of bringing yoga and the plants together to experience a deeper reality. This alchemy leads one into the light of nature, which the alchemists coined Lumen Naturae

In this immersive weekend on the Kripalu program, experience uniting lunar practices—yogasana and pranayama—with the beautiful Shiva Sankalpa Sukta, an ancient Tantric practice for the mind. These methods prepare you for the deeper and subtle guidance of working with specific plants. 

Explore the beautiful trails on the Kripalu campus as you practice dream tending, learn the medicine of local plants and trees, and connect to the intelligence of nature. There will be free time to journal, make personal nature mandalas for rituals—such as ancestral offerings or personal healing—and enjoy kitchen alchemy with a serene, lakeside view.
