Cazimi Healing

Cazimi is a word of Arabic-origin whose meaning loosely translates to “in the heart of”. My approach to healing aims to get to the root of, be in the heart of, whatever ails us. To find our way out by going through or inward.

If we want to change the world we currently live in, we must start with our-Selves.

Preparing for Spring Allergies

Every year I forget I have spring allergies (don't ask how this is possible). I think about it in December, usually, and that feels a bit too early to begin the mega doses of herbs and making the diet changes necessary to defend my body from trifling pollen grains....

Flowers in Spring Bloom

So let's not just overshadow the really obvious fact that these flowers, while typically the first to bloom, are a *tiny* bit early this year. The photos posted below were actually taken at the end of January. I have been slightly worried as thoughts of a permanent...

The Green of Winter (2011)

In December my sweetie and I went for a walk in the Carolina North Forest in Carrboro. It was bright and sunny and one of those unusual warm days...that are becoming less and less unusual I suppose. When looking out around the forest, it seemed dry and dormant. The...

Life-changing! I gained skills that have allowed me to take control of my health.

"Ricky’s herbal medicine course was life-changing for me. As a person who knew little about herbal medicine, I was a bit nervous that I’d be surrounded by classmates who knew far more than I did. Ricky’s created a safe and friendly atmosphere for learners at every stage. Each class included an open lecture style session where we learned about the plants and their relationship to our human physiology, as well as an opportunity to apply our learning in the kitchen. From making elderberry syrup to bitters and other tinctures, I moved from simply being curious about herbal medicine to incorporating it into my lifestyle. I gained skills that have allowed me to take control of my health and I developed a deep love for plants and the power that they have to heal!"

After each session I walked away inspired and motivated to plant herbs in my garden and make my own remedies.

"I was completely new to herbal medicine, and Ricky’s course was like a crash course in herbs and their many uses, how our physical and mental bodies function, how to make herbal teas, tinctures and syrups. After each session I walked away inspired and motivated to plant herbs in my garden and make my own remedies. I have a much deeper appreciation for plants and their many benefits to humans. I admire Ricky’s mindfulness of culture, history and appropriation; her role as both teacher and forever student of this world. She is realistic, holistic and fantastic!"
