soluna medicines came to life in the woods of Western MA in 2021 by Chantelle Castaño with a vision to enhance the presence of beauty, magick, and self-actualization in all those who choose to engage with any space held by or shared with Chan. It is my hope that when you open yourself to healing through the herbs, plant medicines, circles, and retreats soluna medicines offer.. you will find a deep level of wisdom and love within yourself. I believe magick, transformation, self-realization, restoration, and beauty can happen anywhere and anytime -- may these medicines walk with you as you gently open your heart to all that you are in each moment.
soluna medicines offers holistic artists retreat, women's circles, and all-gender plant medicine ceremonies, and one off creative events + workshops. we also have a podcast which emphasis voices of others who persue similar work and gather community in-person!
soluna medicines at it's core is an in-person community based network. It is lovely to connect online.. yet the vision is for these goodies & events to open the space for you to share ideas, play, and connect with your in-person community. If you are longing for like-minded.. healing and magick oriented folxs.. don't be shy to check out solunamedicines.com/offerings

Meet Your Guide
Hello, sweet one. I’m Chantelle—friends call me Chan. I am a spiritual and emotional well-being teacher, medicine woman, and multimedia artist. Under the name soluna medicines I host retreats, mentorships, celebrations, artists experiences, kambo and plant medicine ceremonies, and a podcast. I consider myself a shepherd of the dawn. I find all who chose to engage with soluna medicines work to also be stewarding the new earth and remembering the old ways. I walk the Beauty way.. carrying teachings from time spent in Buddhist monasteries, kirtan trainings, gathering teachings while backpacking Peru - Mexico - Thailand - Nepal -- Colombia -- Costa Rica+, bio-regional herbalism apprenticeships, 1:1 work with medicine mentors, and more. I also hold a degree in Psychological & Brain Sciences from Boston University. In the summer of 2021 I completed an apprenticeship with ayahuasca where I helped facilitate over a dozen ceremonies, brew the medicine, learn how to sing & work healings in ceremony. I walk life devoted to love. I am always learning how to allow change, enjoy life, open my heart, follow my dharma, and play my role in healing my ancestry -- kind of like you.
