"As a new Medicine Woman, I have already learned so many new techniques; From simple tweaks to what I was already doing to completely new recipes that I had never even heard of before. I have been so pleased by the level of instruction, especially when creating remedies that include preparation techniques that are new to me."
"Healing & nourishing myself & my family is a priority. Utilizing what I’ve learned through the lessons has helped me incorporate it without feeling lost. I absolutely love the ease of the portal!

Regardless of where you are on that journey, I am here to help you create delicious meals that the whole family will love.
As a certified plant-based chef and owner of plant-based eatery Ezra's Enlightened Cafe, I know what it takes to make crowd-pleasing dishes that even your kids will crave! I'll show you how to layer nutritious plant medicine into meals so that you and your family are eating foods that heal from the inside out.
And I'll also say, you do not need to be vegan or plant based to enjoy this course. We do not preach vegan as the only diet - or preach about specific diets at all. Many of our dishes can be adapted to your current way of eating. We simply are focused on plants in this course. This is not about a dogma or only eating plants - this is about food layered with medicine.
These are some of the over 45 recipes you will enjoy in the Medicine recipe module.

Making your own herbal remedies connects you to the women who came before you and provides freedom from relying on large corporations to provide simple remedies and medicines....many that have side affects. Having studied with and learned from herbalists such as Susan Weed, Rosita Arvigo, Kami McBride and more, I have thousands of hours of study and hands on experience and the learning continues! The herbal remedies I teaches are folk remedies that your great great grandmother might have used. These are remedies my family and I use daily. Simple, reliable and powerful.
This is not the full list but the highlights of what we cover in our herbal remedy module, which includes over 40 lessons.

"The value of the Medicine Woman Membership wisdom to me is more precious than gold. With the Membership, I've been enjoying learning from access to videos and worksheets and I've even started a Medicine Woman binder for reference. I trust Audrey's wisdom 100%. She has done the research and dedicated so much time, energy and is so passionate about sharing her wealth of knowledge. Thank you for this Medicine Woman Membership opportunity! "
"Becoming a member of the Medicine Woman tribe has been life-changing. Audrey not only shares her wisdom as a plant-based chef and medicine woman, she cultivates a very real sense of community. One of the biggest ways this membership has changed my life is my ability to fight off illness without the use of drugstore medicines. I'm a teacher and therefore come in contact with a fair amount of germs. I have now gone a full three months without a single sick day. In years past I have suffered from pneumonia and pleurisy! Learning to care for both myself and my husband is empowering and healing - physically and psychologically. I would (and have) recommend this membership to anyone who is ready for a deeper dive into the world of plants and herbals medicines, alongside a tribe of fellow medicine women."
"Medicine Woman has been truly life changing for me. I have always gardened and eaten healthy but this membership has opened my eyes to truly using food as medicine. Audrey has such an easygoing style and explains things so anyone can understand. As a visual learner, I love the videos that show me how to make the recipes, tinctures, medicines. My gardens have transformed from mostly vegetables and flowers with a few herbs to being filled with many more medicinal herbs and flowers. I have made most of the recipes and medicines and use many daily. I find myself going back to reread a recipe or re-watch a video and love knowing the information is at my fingertips when I need it. This is the best money I spend every month!!"
"Medicine Woman has enriched my life by giving me an outlet to show love to myself and my family in a healing way. It has been a grounding experience, allowing me to connect with something bigger than myself. Medicine Woman has also given me a new tribe of women who share similar values. I’ve been a fan of Chef Audrey’s for years, and I’m so glad I have the opportunity to learn from her even though I live in a different state."
"I’m more aware of nature and the medicines all around me. I have a better understanding of seasonal cycles of the planet and how to be more in tune with them in my actions"
A business owner and working mother of two small children, Audrey gets the struggle of living in a culture that does not prioritize true health and well-being. Over the past 15 years she has paved her own way toward independence, freedom, and peace of mind by using plants to heal and thrive.
Audrey Barron is a trained plant-based chef and home herbalist with thousands of hours of study, apprenticing, teaching, and practice under her belt.
For over seven years Audrey has been running her plant-based eatery, Ezra's Enlightened Cafe and learning how to apply regenerative agriculture to growing food and herbs on her family's urban farm.
For the past 6 years, Audrey has lead volunteer groups at the family farm, school tours and held workshops around growing and using plants as medicine. For over a decade, Audrey has taught plant-based cooking classes and worked with clients in building lasting well-being.
The full circle experience of growing and harvesting the plants, then preserving and creating nutrient-dense food and medicine - learning how to connect and use the plants to heal was her inspiration for Medicine Woman. Embodying this wisdom is a beautiful way to empower your life from the very foundation.
The freedom and independence of knowing how to use plants to heal is absolutely priceless. And to be part of a circle of women on the same path... this is a dream come true.

"The more I experience the magic of my children, the more I want for them....things like clean food, clean water, clean air and a world with more peace and less suffering. So, I'm making my contribution by growing, cooking, and serving clean food on our land and in our community, and sharing what I learn along the way.
I want more than just the cultural norm for my family... because the cultural norm is toxic food, air, and water. We deserve better. And so does Mother Earth. Change happens with us right in our kitchens. What we feed our family is a ripple effect through our community and beyond. When we are well, the world becomes well.
Medicine Woman provides an opportunity for women who feel the call to bring the ancient wisdom of using plants to heal and thrive into their homes. Women who desire well-being and connection for themselves and their family that stems from a lifestyle shift. Life changing. Life sustaining.
Are you ready? I would love to be your humble guide."
This course is unique in that we offer not only many tools to help you get started on the plant path, but self care lessons as well. I fully believe care for ourselves is so important, especially when we desire to care for others. As a trained Maya Abdominal Therapist, I offer both vaginal steaming and castor oil pack lessons brought to you directly from Medicine Men and Women through the ages along with other potent self care techniques I've used for years in my home.
