About Herbal Medicine Workshops
Every woman is intimately tied to nature. The menstrual cycle follows the cycle of the moon, ebbing and flowing every 28 days, in most cases. A woman’s body can grow and change, like the earth, to hold the life that grows within. And like the soil below us, a woman’s body can assimilate the nutrients needed to grow the perfect food for her children. Perhaps this connection with the cycles of nature has something to do with the powerful relationship that plants can have in supporting the health of women. For thousands of years, herbs have been consumed as part of rituals of menstruation and as part of supporting a woman through her transitions into puberty, motherhood and menopause. And today, botanical medicines provide potent medicine for modern women.
About Mindfulness Meditation
If we learn to focus our attention on our breath, thoughts, feelings and physical sensations, we establish a strong foundation. A foundation from which we can expand our awareness to our actions and interactions with ourselves, other people and the world. We choose our behavior based on response and conscious choice instead of habits and automatic patterns. When we are aware, we can take care of our feelings of anger, frustration, anxiety, stress, fear and insecurity. When we are aware we notice all the little things around us that makes life beautiful and that lift our mood. When we are aware we feel more calm, joyful and alive.
