Cameron began his path to understanding mind-body awareness with a degree in health and sports science and psychology. Seeing that there was more to understand outside of the colonized education system, he began seeking understanding through direct experience with nature, Astrology, herbalism, rootwork, yoga, and other indigenous technologies. Cameron is a practicing herbalist and astrologer that focuses on deconditioning the ways in which we have been taught in order to reorganize ourselves with the natural rhythms and cycles of life in a practical way that is grounded in seeing life as it is.
