Guided by a deep devotion to the divine, and decades of experience, Peeka Trenkle has been an epicenter of knowledge as well as an inspirational teacher and advocate for natural health. Her approach to healing is grounded in the understanding that healing is a nuanced process that develops and deepens over time on physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. With an understanding that we cannot be fully well when our environment is not, Peeka holds central the idea that the pursuit of natural health goes hand in hand with a commitment to restoring the health of the earth.
Over the last few decades, Peeka has worked with thousands of students and clients worldwide. She has a unique perspective on healing, holism and the environment and is committed to helping others learn how to take an active role in restoring, cultivating and maintaining their own health. This model of healing involves encouraging a connection with the natural world and an understanding of the importance of local foods, herbs and waters. Peeka maintains a private practice as a homeopathic consultant, herbalist and intuitive healer both remotely and in person in her office in Denville, New Jersey.
She is a professional member of the American Herbalists Guild, a graduate of the School of Homeopathy, New York, and the Dynamis School for Advanced Homeopathic Studies. She has been on the faculty of the New York Open Center since 1996. A peacemaker at her core, Peeka’s gift of speaking truth to light has led to an emergence of a powerful message through creation care sermons and inspirational engagements.
With a calling to guide people toward a deeper connection with nature, creation, purpose and belonging, Peeka draws from years of practice and experience and teaches about the dynamic interplay between ecology, theology and healing as a sacred path to gentle and profound restoration of health and wholeness. Peeka’s visionary work aims to educate and inspire those seeking to deepen their commitment to the healing of the world through how we reimagine health in a time of climate crisis – and also to nurture a global community of thinkers and healers. Skills that Peeka has integrated into her work over 4o years include a life-long interest in nature and herbs as well as a background in shiatsu, polarity, cranial-sacral therapy, energy work, flower essence therapy, herbal medicine, meditation, homeopathy, and nutrition. She also has had extensive experience in Jungian psychology and somatic therapies and received her Master of Divinity degree from Union Theological Seminary.
Join a community that encourages faith in the power of the healing process, a love of the natural world, and hope for a future in which the redemptive power of nature is central to our wellness.
