Megan is joyously overwhelmed by the beauty of the natural world. A forever student of plants, she is dedicated to learning and growing the medicines of her bioregion as a way to cultivate healing within her community. She uses movement as a tool for grounding into one’s deeper truths – a daily dance practice keeps her spirits and awareness high.

She unequivocally loves what it means to be human and believes in the power of ritual and ceremony as a way to tap into an individual’s uniquely beautiful gifts. Utilizing her gifts of warmth, presence, and playfulness, Megan functions as the Land by Hand community pollinator – sharing and tapping into the abundance of energy, ideas and wisdom in our human ecosystems.
