Botanical Educator, Grassroots & Bioregional Herbalist, Writer, Forager, Awe-seeker and Animist.
Belong to the Botanical.
I belong to the living breathing world that speaks to me through rock and tree.
Offering my life as an artful expression of reciprocity; tending to the inner and outer landscapes, finding the threads between them, the relationships that bind us in interconnection, and ground us in the web of ecological wonder.
I'm Taj Scicluna,
also known as 'The Perma Pixie'
I am a Botanical Educator,
Herbal Clinician & Forager.
To receive regular wild cuisine & herbal medicine recipes, educational videos, ephemeral medicines and access to all online workshops,
please join my Patreon.
It is the best way to support me as I write my book, which is a guide to seasonal living with herbal medicines.
I wildcraft and grow all the herbs I gift my patreons, and the content is based on my love of the botanical, as I share herbal homesteading life tips, foraging advice and animist appreciations in the form of booklets, videos, meditations, live gatherings and more...
Medicine is an everyday interaction.
Medicine is a relationship.
Medicine is a way of being, a way of living.
Medicine is air, water, food, movement, connections and even thought processes.
My reverence for plant life has only increased since dedicating myself to the science of working with the constituents that are responsible for physiological responses. Transforming them into herbal products has taught me more about being my true self: the importance of letting go, listening, pausing, and appreciating.
Leaf, Seed, Fruit, Root, Bark, Berry and Shoot... they fill me with an immeasurable joy, an undeniable gratitude, and a chance to be still within myself and witness the medicine of the moment.
