About: Inner_about

Kayla is an educator, a farmer, a seed-keeper, a folk herbalist, a creative, a circle keeper, and a lover of life.

 

She lives in the Northern Nevada, where the beauty of the high desert meets the Sierra Nevada mountains. Here, within an intimate but beautiful community, she grows foods, dye plants, makes medicine, and is a part of the collective re-membering of what it means to belong to the Earth.

 

As a Holistic Reproductive Health Practitioner in training, she offers transformative spaces centered on body literacy, fertility awareness, and reproductive sovereignty for women to come home to their own authority, knowing, and freedom.

 

She holds the understanding that women and the earth are the same, and her work is centered around the healing of both people and planet, through community circles, food and seed tending, medicine making, ceremony, and regenerative practices.

 

Find her offering classes, workshops, retreats, and council for folks to deepen in relationship to their bodies, the earth, and to the slowly forgotten ancestral arts. 

 

This includes spaces for our young girls and parents to honor menarche and coming of age, and release work and council for those under-going pregnancy release/ abortion, as well as group deep dives and circle spaces.

 

She is a medicine maker of a small line of herbal medicines, plant-dyed adornments and crafts as well as baking old world breads alongside her partner Zach. 

 

She is holding to the vision in these strange times on Earth, to become something life-giving and beautiful for our children’s children.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Shadow on Concrete Wall

Ali, Reno NV.

I absolutely adore your leadership style. Your softness and ability to gently lead others is absolutely amazing. You lead as a beacon.  I never felt pressure from you in the same way I have felt from other role models and authoritative figures. You allowed me to show up to this space as my true self, even if it meant I was five minutes late at least once a week. Your gentle reminders were never critical of myself or a direct action of mine, but always reminders of principles we are aiming to live by...

Morgan, Reno NV

Without judgment we created a container of radical healing that allowed for life changing experiences to take place. I have gained so much knowledge and insight into a wonderful way of being and seeing that my perspectives have shifted. I built a solid foundation of devotion to myself, to spirit, and to serve with a open and loving heart. The work asks that we show up with honest vulnerability. Your edges will be found and pushed but when you look up after crying to a room full of the kindest warmhearted eyes and you know that you are safe and held there is nothing that can hold us back from living a connected existence

Shadow on Concrete Wall

Thank you for having a profoundly positive impact on me here in Reno when I was feeling alone, confused, broken and questioning whether this was my place. thank you for reminding me there are beautiful souls here and instilling community into my here and now.  Kayla thank you for fully showing up, every single day,  for staying committed, and for going all in.

I felt really seen and heard  by you Kayla, thank you for your one- on- one check ins and sweet gentle gestures of love & support, they were well received and impactful.

Regan, Reno NV.
