Rebecca Mae Bacon
Rebecca Mae Bacon is an artist, spiritual mentor, passionate teacher of the healing arts, and loves nature above all else. She grew up in the mountains of Nevada.
When she was 18, a series of events brought her to the East Coast where she unexpectedly found herself learning among some of the world’s most famous and creative hair designers. It was intense training, an immersion in the ability to really see people and work skillfully with hands and words. Listening, too.
After her apprenticeship, Rebecca traveled the world as a hair designer, working at international shows with many of the most celebrated heads in the fashion world.
Finally, 25 years later, after starting her own business and creating her own fashion line, Rebecca’s soul began calling her back to the world of nature, to her authenticity. With that came a yearning to go deeper into healing, for herself and for others.
This third stop in her life began with training in Santa Monica at the “Shiatsu Massage School of California”, where Rebecca became captivated by the study of functional anatomy and transformative bodywork. Taught by Vincent Medici, DC ND. Likewise, she studied psychology at “Santa Monica College” which eventually brought her to Milne Institute. In 2012, she completed her training there.
An instinctive enthusiasm for wild places in nature led Rebecca to learn animal and plant medicine, to immerse herself in the wisdom of the stone elders, in the whispers of ancient trees that carry the message from everywhere and in all directions.
She has been part of the MII teaching team ever since, first as an assistant teacher, and later as a tutor and teacher for the review days. Now she travels side by side with Hugh Milne, teaching and facilitating the smooth flow of VCSW® seminars on three continents. When home in Big Sur, she uses her skills as an animal rescue specialist to help our smaller “relatives” when they are in need.
