Donna Guillemin is a Plant Spirit Medicine healer living in Tsawwassen B.C. in the Pacific Northwest. She completed her Plant Spirit Medicine training with Eliot Cowan in 1992.

Donna brings a lifelong relationship with plants and a heart-centered focus to her practice of Plant Spirit Medicine. She is grateful for their ever-present gifts of healing on all levels.

She began her plant studies at an early age making colorful tinctures from the wild weeds and flowers she discovered growing in the back lane. Donna credits her inherent love and respect for plants and healing to her grandmother and mother. She learned that medicine was available everywhere: in plants, song, prayer and nature. Even a bowl of soup coming from Grandmother’s kitchen was called ‘medicine’! She enjoyed spending time with the elders in her community and learning about the old ways.

Donna relates her experience of Plant Spirit Medicine to that of returning home to a dream garden deep within herself.  
 
This healing medicine continues to expand her awareness of the world within and without and helps her to better understand what human beings need at a deep level as well as what the plants are willing to give us. She says, “We are not so different from plants; they have so much to teach us and so much to give us. Spirit is always present and always willing to help if we are willing to ask.”
