Words cannot express the profound and resonate impact this magical Medicine woman has made in both of our lives. The work that we share with our community is deeply informed by all that we have learnt from her. She has taught us what it means to live between the worlds. To have one foot in the mundane and one foot in the magic. The importance of tending to our own energy to serve deeply. To lean into our power. To lead with grace and with trust in the divine. It will take many, many lifetimes for us to be able to pay forward the gifts she has passed on to us. We are so honoured to share with you today our beloved Seraphina Capranos for our Sacred Mentor Series.
Seraphina Capranos is known for bringing healing, communion with nature, and earth magic to the world.
Seraphina’s European grandparents first introduced her to the healing power of natural medicine. While seasonally gathering herbs in rural Ontario they lovingly taught her about the traditional wisdom of herbs and plant lore.
After suffering injury to her spine as a teenager, Seraphina was declared by the conventional medical system to lead a life of suffering in chronic pain. Determined to heal herself, she returned to her roots and began a professional study of natural medicine at Emerson College of Herbology leading her to study with renowned herbalist Susun S. Weed at The Wise Woman Center in NY and then healers in the desert of New Mexico.
The combination and expertise of her two passions of herbal medicine and homeopathic medicine makes Seraphina a gifted practitioner. She brings the balance of university education in science to the magic of what wild lands and indigenous healers has taught her to each of her classes and clients.
She has been in practice at The Green Raven Centre, a multi-disciplinary clinic on Salt Spring Island, BC since 2004. She shares her clinic with a Five Element acupuncturist, an Osteopath and Registered Massage Therapist. Together they work collaboratively serving their local community and patients who travel from afar. Working as a team with her remarkable colleagues is an integral part of Seraphina’s joy in practice.
As an educator she is passionate about offering empowering, heart-centered classes that are rooted in spirit. She has been a devoted teacher of herbalism and homeopathy since 2008, having taught in colleges, private classrooms, retreats and as a keynote speaker at professional conferences.
Seraphina Capranos is a graduate of the Vancouver Homeopathic Academy(2005). She regularly attends post-graduate seminars and courses, and teaches numerous classes and workshops internationally.
She is certified by the Council of Homeopathic Certification, and is registered by the Canadian Society of Homeopaths.
