Once Upon a Time a connivance of plagues of the body, mind and spirit was seen to spread across the once verdant land, and time it was for its most inspired and caring peoples to arise and gather, time indeed to hone their growing skills and together make a special magic! 


Imagine if you will, a green wooded mesa high above the small artsy town and its river winding below.   Wild herbs and mushrooms abound on the shimmering mountainsides, nearby to the canvas gazebos where diverse healers, plant lovers and culture-shifters from all over the country and world come to learn, share, connect and celebrate.  Here you will revel not just in an educational experience but an empowering adventure like none other, the very furthering of your blossoming abilities and personal chosen path, a tale of adventure that we’re to both share and retell. 


It is for you to open the cover and turn the pages …for this is your unfolding story.

Folks have been speaking of it for over a year already as a “Return of The Tribe,” acknowledging the pent-up hunger to convene physically again with kindred plant healers, visionaries and practitioners.  It is a vastly diverse and widely dispersed clan of clinicians, activists, artisans and home medicine makers, including those working outside the limits of officialdom, cliques and norms, and who hold close to those fellow edge dwellers and visionaries they sense are  their “people.”  It is for every impassioned natural healer of bodies, psyches and planet that we dedicate our events, and it is for you that we will be doing everything possible to produce yet another safe, enchanting, info and inspiration filled Confluence.


If unforeseen Covid regulations happen to make indoor classes impossible, we will hold all of the over 150 classes outdoors under gazebos. For a feel of the area around our Durango, Colorado site, turn to the
