Tony Oakworth

Plants and fungi are magic…though you could say, when viewed through magical eyes, everything is magic! By observing, interacting, witnessing and patiently studying nature, human beings can cultivate a deep sense of sacred reverence and connection to all things. Life can be truly magic...if one so chooses. The choice is made easier when awareness is sufficiently cultivated which is a direct result of seeking to understand and contextualize experience. Those who take up the mantle to know themselves, inevitably begin the process of healing.

Tony has been on a journey of healing and/or self-discovery for 20 plus years. In 2011, he began studying herbal medicine, earning a diploma in Phytotherapy from Pacific Rim College (PRC). After graduation, he worked in the supplement industry followed by working at PRC’s herbal dispensary. From there he began his teaching career, offering a medicinal mushroom materia medica, a nutrition course on food toxicity, therapeutics in the Community Herbalist program, teaching clinics and several weekend workshops in the Phytotherapy, Nutrition, and Permaculture programs.

His passion for people, plants and fungi and their interrelationships keeps him buzzing with questions to be answered and understood. He LOVES to engage in meaningful dialogue and enjoys sharing his knowledge with others. From plants and fungi to his personal healing journey, Tony energetically delivers engaging and accessible content.

Human beings are here to act as stewards of the planet and to tend the garden by cultivating themselves as much as their surroundings. In order to thrive and flourish, people must become compassionate gardeners of love and expanded awareness. The plants have partnered up with Tony to help make that happen.

Tony Oakworth is a registered herbal therapist, owner of Woodward Phytotherapy (herbal medicine clinic in Brentwood Bay, BC), and educator at Pacific Rim College in Victoria, BC working in the fields of plant medicines, nutrition, and mycology.
