Our school features medicine workers and elders working across a spectrum of the healing arts. Students have an opportunity to study medicine in the context it is relevant to and classes are often taught in a nonacademic way. Several of the teachers have written books, and may have a masters or PhD but this is not our focus. We value the grandma healers, and the ones who carry the knowledge of many generations of their elders doing the same thing, the people who are actively working with their community and being in touch with their roots.

Morgaine is a lover of medicinal plants and nature. She is a medicine maker, a farmer, a wild crafter, and founder of Native Roots. Morgaine has a private practice doing bodywork, sound healing, and physical and emotional trauma release.
She lived in Belize and had the opportunity to apprentice tropical medicine with one of the most revered medicine men in the country the late Don Heriberto Cocom for 8 months. She also studied at the Northwest School for Botanical Studies, The Dandelion Center, California School for Herbal Studies, The Dhyanna Center, Blue Otter School, Acutonics Institute for Integrative Medicine, Ethnic Studies and Anthropology at the University of Colorado and continues to her studies of mayan medicine in Guatemala with Don Reginaldo Chayeux.
She has collaborated for 10 years with his Nonprofit Association to support the protection of the fully Mayan run rainforest Reserve Bio Itza and brings groups of students to study with him. Morgaine has recognized the importance of honoring healing modalities of all cultures and especially the ones of our own tradition even if they have been forgotten by a few generations.
She grew up with in an immigrant community and found herself easily honoring the elders that still remembered their own language, their own healing modalities and traditions from that community. It was a journey of many years before she started to look deeper into reclaiming the healing practices of the ancestral traditions that she came from and hopes to share with all people of European decent to remember to honor their own ancestors, to connect to the land and the people that are currently practicing and keeping the context of European tribal healing traditions alive today. She hopes to create a safe space to bridge the gap generational knowledge and cultural similarities and healing tools to encourage self healing and community healing.
Morgaine worked for Teambuilders counseling Services in 2008 in Taos New Mexico as a Comprehensive Community Support Specialist teaching “life skills” including communication, stress and anger management, and parenting skills and offering social work opportunities for children and their parents. Later she worked at nonprofit Rocky Mountain Youth Corps with “at risk youth” doing hands on experiential learning in nature focusing on useful life skills and training once a week for teens. Afterwards, she ventured to Guatemala to volunteer at an orphanage and was responsible for 30 girls ages 10-17 as their live-in caretaker and teacher for 5 months. in 2011 Morgaine found herself homebound and endured hurricane Sandys destruction leaving 13 million people on the East coast without electricity. She coordinated one thousand volunteers a day in Staten Island, New York and spent months doing grassroots disaster recovery with Feeding Family including immediate needs donations and distribution of water, food, respiratory masks, clothing, tho food, medications, and animal rehoming, demolition, and later therapeutic urban gardening in elevated community garden beds, fundraising, and more demolition, raw sewage clean up and mold control.
