Hi I’m Kat, founder of Yarrow Resilience Institute

Originally a California soul I now spend most my time in the Sacred Valley of Peru. My heart creations blossom through workshops, retreats, and transformational guidance centered on connecting people with skills for resilient and holistic living. Yarrow RI grew out of years of working with the land, food systems, herbalism, and humans in many capacities.

I believe that nature can guide us in dropping out of our head and into our heart, living from the center of our unique and innate wisdom. My inspiration comes from ancient Earth wisdom and reconnecting with nature for reconnecting with self.

I truly believe we all have the skills within us to blossom into the best version of ourselves. I root you into life and your unique wisdom. You are innately connected to nature. My offerings remind you how by weaving in themes of herbalism, fermentation, meditation, yogic philosophy, cyclical living, plant spirit connection, creative writing and rituals with plant allies.

Why Yarrow Resilience Institute?

After years of working with and exploring within sustainable agriculture, food justice, fermentation education, herbalism and nature based rituals, I realized that to show up for the well being of our communities and nature, we must first show up for ourself.

I believe nature, plant wisdom and land based practices are the key to slowing down and tuning into our innate wisdom so that we can learn to navigate our inner landscape. With this self-awareness, we can show up grounded, self-aware and compassionate in the outer world.

Our world is need of deep change and healing. It is filled with humxs with unique wisdom, skills, love and inspiration too. As an herb Yarrow is a harmonizer and I truly believe it can lead us in harmonizing our differences and healing our collective heartache. This all begins by connecting to nature, ourselves, and community.

All offerings from Yarrow RI are derived from the wisdom of nature, our greatest teacher. I honor the teachings and inspirations from all my teachers, plants, and the traditional indigenous lineages from which I continue to learn so much wisdom.

Yarrow RI is an invitation to look back and remember where we came from, learn the skills to adapt this wisdom to the present day and look forward to create a new tomorrow.

Yarrow RI builds resilience through immersive experiences, workshops, retreat offerings, 1:1 transformation journeys, partnerships with local communities and collaboration with projects that promote human connection and nature based healing.
