I am really excited about this collaboration with past student Devon Whitney!
A Weekend Plant Immersion
Practices for cultivating heartfelt connection
July 30-July 31, 2016
Join is for a weekend retreat in the Hilltowns of Western MA.
Our focus will be herbal heart medicines including Tulsi, Rose, Motherwort, Borage and Cacao. Our hearts, oh how our hearts are aching with grief these days, endless lives lost as a result of needless violence, our hearts ache and our Earth aches. We will share remedies and practices that can help in dissolving fear, anger and frustration, release bitterness and resentment. Remedies that can sooth and build nervous system so that we can become pillars of support in our communities.
