Liz Neves


Liz Neves is a mama, meditator, dreamer, herbalist, and reiki practitioner.

Her classes are inspired by herbalism, earth-based spirituality, and ancient wisdom teachings. She has come to this path led by her experiences - of leaving the corporate world, of becoming a mother, of guidance from dreams. Liz believes we learn our greatest lessons directly from the natural world, from the plants, and from our own internal guidance. And of course with a helping hand from our human community as well...

These are some of the herbalists and healers she has studied with: Peeka Trenkle, Jacoby Ballard, Karen Rose, Robin Rose Bennett, Rosalee de la Forêt, Kristin Reed, and Irma StarSpirit Turtle Woman. She received formal meditation teacher training from Cyndi Lee, owner of Om Yoga. Liz is inspired by the work of Rosemary Gladstar, David Winston, 7Song, Matthew Wood, Stephen Harrod Buhner, and Robin Wall Kimmerer, among many others. In 2008, she received a permaculture design certification through Andrew Faust of the Center for Bioregional Living. 

Liz is an active community member of the Pachamama Alliance.

She is deeply grateful for her direct teachers, including her son, the Plants, the Elements, the Earth. 

Raganella, the herbal body care business she launched and ran for 3 years, had a loyal following and was featured in food.curated on NYC-TV, LA Weekly, Huffington Post, and more.

Liz offers weekly healing plant walks and private healing sessions at MINKA Brooklyn. Learn more about her offerings.
