Wildcrafted Love

rewild your spirit through your connection with nature

Shankari is a healer of rare gifts, and an effortless translator of nature’s grace and abundance. I think of her as a magical bridge between human beings and plants — as someone who can speak both languages fluently. Beyond all that, she is simply a delight to spend time with. She’s one of my favorite people on the planet, and someone who has changed the course and direction of my life more than I can say.
— Elizabeth Gilbert, Author of Eat Pray Love, Big Magic and City of Girls

your plant guide and sacred herbalist

Herbs, flowers, trees and plants all hold special powers to heal us. Each of us has the ability to commune with plants and find a deeper connection to ourselves.

My calling is to help you find that connection through classes, workshops, lectures and retreats. Join me as I guide you into the wilderness of your deepest self.

Welcome, Wild Lovers.

from class participants

I loved sipping flower nectar, listening to Shankari’s beautiful voice reading nature-inspired poetry in the garden, as the waves crashed into the cliffs below. She is magical!”
— Kari Bernardi, Director of Living Light Culinary Institute
As a personal chef I am still appreciating what I learned from Shankari. Now that I know the flavor profiles of different edible flowers, my salads will never be the same.
