The Medicine Circle was created by Tara Lanich-LaBrie as a landing place, a community, and an exploration of Beauty in its many forms from regenerative food practices to art and healing.
As an animist, I work to support my community in a variety of ways through a deep reverence and cultivation of relationship to the seen and unseen natural forces.
I am a culinary voyager and artist in service to creating Beauty, living on and growing an organic farm in Colorado.
I create plant-guided meals for retreat or workshop settings, utilizing the seasonal offerings from our farm, Esoterra Culinary Gardens.
My focus is on healing both individuals and the larger community through beautiful food as an offering, healing recipes, retreats and classes.
Ali Arams, Executive Director of Usungale Food For Thought
Tara's magical abilities open up a whole new dimension of eating, nutrition, and plant relationships. When you eat her food, you feel like you are eating a gorgeous mini universe of love that blows your mind and your mouth! It's like giving your spirit and body a sacred food bath. "Food" feels like an understatement, but when you eat it, it's a truly awakening, heart-fulfilling, earth-connecting, energizing, soulful, and sensual experience. You can't help but wonder how she does it, how something so amazing can be possible, and how the world would be entirely different if people ate and respected their food like this all the time.

Tara brings amazing creativity, love, and intention to everything she cooks. I have been lucky to have been a part of workshops were she has served beautiful works of art as nourishing meals. Her process and the depth of relationship with the food she cooks and the land in which its grown is inspiring.
Tara is a truly gifted artist, visionary and alchemist. Her inspired creations evoke an ancient medicine that is felt deep within the bones. Whether it’s one of her paintings or a feast that she has lovingly prepared, Tara invites us to remember who we are in a most beautiful way.
