Grow Psychedelic Mushrooms in Seattle
Private location; address provided on booking. This truly "only in Seattle" experience teaches how to grow your own psychedelic mushrooms from low cost supplies using a method you can easily replicate in your own home, wherever you live. Please bring three pint sized mason jars with lids and rings. I can describe them in more detail after you book. I provide all other supplies. Because of a 2021 ruling from the Seattle City Council that decriminalizes the cultivation of psychedelic fungi for “religious, spiritual, healing, or personal growth practices", I am able to offer this class completely legally. We'll talk about the evolutionary history of fungus, how different cultures have used and valued psychedelic experiences, and the entheogenic health movement. I leave time for questions, and do my best to customize this experience for you. At the end of this 2.5-3 hour class, you'll leave with your own custom mushroom grow, and instruction on how to start your own tiny psychedelic mushroom farm. I have a unique background as a forager and published health researcher. I bring a unique mixture of knowledge on health, ecology, and mycology. Teaching my first hundred students in my apartment for this class has been a joy. I hope you'll join me soon! Notes: I have two cats, and live up three flights of stairs. I ask that you test for COVID before attending.

Heart-to-Heart Walk
Hello friend, how is your heart doing today? We tend to get caught up in the rush of life that it's easy to forget we are all human beings, not just human doings. Let's get curious & examine the corners of your heart, explore your own soul. Come for a walk with me at Green Lake, or if you'd like we can simply sit down on a bench & chat! I can't promise you any magical solutions, nor can I give you all the answers, but I invite you to share this safe & sacred space with me. One without judgement & kept just between you and me. You are allowed to show up as you are, be as vulnerable as you wish to be. Share whatever you need to get off your chest to lighten the burden you've been carrying. I'm here to tell you, you are not alone-- your voice matters, your story matters, your healing matters-- you matter. I'm your girl who will listen with deep empathy, compassion, & understanding. I know what it's like to blindly walk through the dark tunnel of suffering, having fought my way through grueling battles of loss, heartache, & abandonment. Whatever is weighing your heart down, I hope you have the courage to break open, to air out the wounds, let the light enter, & breathe free today. It is my honor to help you there. Sincerely, Annabelle “It takes more courage to examine the dark corners of your own soul than it does for a solider to fight on a battlefield." -W. B. Yeats

What do locals do in Seattle?

Spend time in Fremont

Whether you’re visiting or local, Fremont is a laid-back neighborhood loved most for its quaint cafes, bike-friendly trails along the Lake Washington Ship Canal, and (yes) that recognizable troll statue that’s made cameos in its fair share of blockbuster movies. Take a walking tour of the neighborhood with one of its residents to get the most of your visit. Don’t miss Fremont Lookout for great city views.

Visit breweries in Ballard

The once sleepy Scandinavian village, where you can still visit impressive landmarks like the Ballard Locks, is today a beacon of breweries. Family traditions, old world brews, and innovative beers are all within an easy, relaxed walk or bike ride through this mostly flat neighborhood. There’s plenty of dog- and kid-friendly spots to kick back and relax.

Hike Volunteer Park

This nearly 50-acre public park teems with things to do for all ages. Visit the Seattle Asian Art Museum, take a short hike to the water tower to enjoy secretive views of the city from an observation deck, or laze about the Great Lawn for a picnic. In the summer months (typically around August), don’t miss the dahlias in full bloom here.

Indulge in Chinese food

Eat your way through Chinatown on a food tour, find the best noodles in the International district, or learn to make classic dumplings in a cooking class.

Explore Seattle’s waterways

Paddleboard on Green Lake and at Alki Beach, row or kayak along Lake Washington and Lake Union, or enjoy private boat cruises around the Puget Sound.


What are the best ways to explore outdoors?

Day trips to national parks and waterfalls

Anyone looking to enjoy a day out to Mount Rainier or Olympic national parks can easily take off from Seattle. Both parks are about a 2-hour drive (one way), and getting up early to get ahead of the day is a great way to maximize time exploring the majesty of the Pacific Northwest. For another special (and closer) experience: Join a local expert on a 30-minute drive out to admire Snoqualmie Falls for hikes for all activity levels. After, stop at a family-run winery in the foothills of the Cascade mountains for a quiet gourmet lunch and laid-back tastings.

Forest bathing and urban hikes

What makes a city like Seattle so unique? You don’t have to go far to experience old-growth forests in places such as Seward Park, where an entire part of the park is covered in centuries-old trees. Take time to slow down and appreciate the beauty surrounding you on some 13 trailheads.


What are the best things to do at night in Seattle?

Seattle is known for its music and arts, and areas like Capitol Hill and the downtown are great places to find music clubs, museums, and galleries. For those looking for more hands-on activities, shake things up with mixology classes, a supernatural experience at Pike Place Market, and more.
