Frequently asked questions
How is Plant Friend: Living With Nature different from HOME: A Self-Guided Journey with Rachel Brathen?
Plant Friend is an affordable collection of practices inspired by our premium product HOME: A Self-Guided Journey, featuring plant-based activities and rituals, videos and meditations to help guide you towards a deeper connection to Mother Nature and the Plant World.
When does Plant Friend: Living With Nature begin?
You can start and move along all of the course materials whenever you’d like and completely at your own pace.
How much time do I need to dedicate to this course?
It’s completely up to you! Plant Friend was designed so that you have a wide range of healing resources and practices that you can turn to in every season of your life. If you’d like to focus on the course a little bit each day, once a week, or spread out over the course of year you have the space to do just that, depending on the length of your membership or if you purchase it on its own with lifetime access.
I live in a city with no access to natural spaces, can I still join?
Yes! This course was created for everyone and anyone that is looking to deepen their connection to nature and themselves. This course was also created to serve as a reminder that nature isn’t just a place you go - you are nature. Know that no matter what your living situation is, you will be able to adapt and customize the lessons, practices, and rituals to your local area.

I’m pregnant. Can I still participate?
Yes! This course is not focused on physical practices like yoga and active meditations.
