Liz Neves is an herbalist, wildcrafter, reiki & healing drum practitioner, and meditation instructor. Since the early 1990s, Liz felt the call to write. She made a career out of copywriting in medical marketing, however about 8 years in, she yearned to spend more time outdoors, immersed in nature. By 2008, Liz was studying permaculture and as a result, she found her true calling in herbal medicine. She credits many teachers – plant, animal, mineral, and human – with guiding her on the path of healing and learning.
Liz’s first foray into sharing plant medicine with her community was formulating and handcrafting a line of botanical home and body care products. Her passion for the plants deepened into a desire to restore the human-Earth connection. In 2014, she founded Gathering Ground as a platform for herbal education, earth-based spirituality, and energy healing. Liz leads weekly healing plant walks to introduce city dwellers to the myriad of medicinal flora in the urban environment. When she’s not teaching plant–medicine-making workshops, Liz is wildcrafting and preparing herbal medicines for her family and community. She’s also an avid dreamworker and leads a monthly dream circle.
