Sarah hasn’t always been a healer. When homeopathy found her, she was sitting in a hospital
bed, weighing 94 pounds, a line threaded from a medical pump into her heart. With permission
to be more than a diagnosis, she opened to the techtonic shifts in every level of health that
homeopathy facilitates, experienced the spiritual coherence of the modality, and discovered
her calling. Homeopathy is the art and science of selecting homeopathic medicines in aligment
with the full constellation of physical, mental, and spiritual symptoms that a client experiences.
That path is ever-unfolding, flowing through classical homeopathy, Q’ero shamanism,
ceremonial Attunement, and flower essence therapy; it follows the currents of the Inner Sea.
Sarah lives in Georgetown, works locally and remotely, and writes publicly.
