Bethany (they/them) is a teacher and student of ancestral skills. For as long as they can remember they’ve turned to the trees and animals in the forest for council. Bethany believes strongly in the healing powers of nature, believing that strengthening our connection with the natural world can improve our interpersonal relationships and emotional wellbeing. Bethany has found that working their hands with elements of nature brings some of the deepest healing. They feels like it is their path to help bridge the gap between humans and nature, bringing to light how that relationship can help heal trauma. Bethany has worked with many different natural elements with an emphasis on different ways of processing animal skins and is a professional broom maker.
