“I am a Plant Medicine Woman, Healer, and Teacher.

I offer a bridge to Personal Healing, another way of being.” – Linda Rose


Cranial Sacral Body work is most of all, a hands-on therapy
Using gentle pressure and deep patience, the Practitioner guides the clients body to a more comfortable position. This approach to Bodywork can be helpful for people with old injuries, back pain, individual joint and/or soothing postural misalignment. The soothing, restful nature of this Bodywork can also be useful for those suffering from insomnia and other challenges to the nervous system.

Healing Wilderness AdventuresBRG Panorama 2

We offer a unique opportunity to work and learn in the field with an experienced Plant Medicine Person, connecting with nature spirits and much more.

We camp on the land for 4 days; we cook our food on a campfire and swim in the beautiful clear Black River, named for it’s dark clay bottom. We learn about he wilderness, basic survival skills, and Wild Crafting Medicinal Plants.

Healing at the Black River Gatehouse is powerful, for when we come back to the land we remember who we really are. We find ourselves again through the silence of the Wild and the silence deep within ourselves where the answers are.
