About Megan

Megan is a third-generation settler living, working and playing on the Traditional and Unceded territory of the Quw’utsun’ people. Her blood and bones hold Norse and Celtic ancestry, and her spirit is from the Stars. Megan is a Registered Medical Herbalist, intuitive healer and educator with a passion for plant medicine, ceremony, dream work and the stars. She has a strong connection with the astrophysical realm, channeling both Earth and Celestial energy into her practice.  She combines her medical, botanical and spiritual knowledge with heart and womb centered intuition and Earth-based healing practices.  


Megan obtained a bachelor of science in biopsychology from the University of Victoria, a Medical Herbalist Diploma (3 years schooling) from Pacific Rim College, has taken masters level counselling courses, studied somatic experiencing with Peter Levine, PhD, studied Ancestral Lineage Healing with Daniel Foor and completed an Alchemical Herbalism program that integrates the practices of alchemy, spagyrics, medical astrology, traditional western herbalism, Ayurveda and indigenous traditions.  


Megan worked in the field of Mental Health and Addictions for 11 years. Much of her strength as a confident trauma informed practitioner has come from her professional experience working as Psychiatric Case Manager where trauma informed practice, crisis intervention, and risk assessments are foundational. Although her formal education and career has provided a solid foundation for her practice, her most valuable education stems from studying with Earth based healers from around the globe, where she witnessed the deep relationship between plants and people, experienced the healing power of nature and learnt directly from the plants and spirits.


Since Megan was a child she has been in connection with spirit, the star beings and nature. At the age of 21 she began a three-year Core Shamanism program of advanced initiations in shamanic healing through the Michael Harner Institute. Shortly thereafter, she had the great honor to study with Haida Medicine Man Nungkaathgaa (Douglas Wilson) and continued working with him until his recent passing in 2020. This training involved intensive initiation work through Rites of Passage, ceremony, energy healing, journey work and depossession training. Megan is deeply grateful and humbled for the opportunity to study under such a brilliant mentor. In 2011-2012 Megan studied Metaphysics and Dream work with Chaty Secaira. Soon thereafter, she mentored under Celtic Witch and Herbalist Sean Padraig O’Donoghue where she learned the magical uses of herbal / fungal medicines, somatic herbalism, intuitive diagnostics, ceremony and ritual. In between studies and apprenticeships Megan has travelled to South America, Africa, Mexico, Central America and Europe to study plant medicine ceremony and work in traditional ways. Since 2019 Megan has been and is currently mentoring under Norse / Coast Salish Shamanic practitioner Betsy Bergstrom where she is deepening her skill set in Compassionate depossession, curse unwinding, Seidr, Norse energy healing and other shamanic healing modalities. She recently completed a1.5 year apprenticeship program with Norse Shaman Johannes B. Gårdbäck, with the intention of deepening her connection with her Norse Ancestry and healing practices. For the past 2 years Megan has been pouring her heart and womb into studying the ancient European practices of Bee Shamanism with Ariella Daly.


Megan’s passion is supporting individuals to connect with their soul purpose, true self essence and help others remember how to live in connection and harmony with the Earth. Megan's intention is to integrate modern medicine and traditional herbal psychospiritual practices to assist individuals on their healing journey towards health and wholeness of being.
