Introduction to Holistic Herbalism: Spring Edition
Time & Location
About the Event
This multi-sensory workshop will introduce the empowering practice of Holistic Herbalism; treating the whole self—mind, body and spirit—in collaboration with medicinal plants. We’ll share herbal infusions (medicinal teas) and tinctures made from plants found in the wilds of New York and discuss how they help us heal. You’ll learn to tap into the language of these wild healers, engage practices to explore the root cause of health challenges and learn to make your own medicine. Come away with a deepened connection to yourself, to nature and a herbal blend to support you and your loved ones this spring.
