PRIVATE LOCAL EVENT. Pre-registration fee for Feb 18 workshop

Description: We will be meeting at State Street Brewing Company for an introduction into Winter Wellness herbal medicine, restorative yoga, and medicine making for our community.

The event will include

A sister circle – this is defined as a group of women experiencing the same health concerns who come together for education and support.

~a guided meditation to relax us into the space, keep us present, create a safe and open space for sharing and communication

~an introduction to many herbs that we can incorporate into our daily routines to prevent us and our children from getting sick with many recipes to sample. This will include elderberry syrup, fire cider, herbal teas, healing skin salves, natural antibiotic tinctures, and medicinal herbal honey.

~an introduction to herbal recipes and products that we can use on when we are already sick with symptoms present. This goes beyond prevention and will be a wonderful addition to your family's medicine cabinet.

~a restorative yoga session including postures, poses and breathing techniques to strengthen our immune system, build fire in our bodies, ways to loosen phlegm during head colds, and restorative poses when we are not feeling our best. This will be a gentle yoga session. All levels welcome.

~a workshop demonstration teaching you how to make your own fire cider and a takeaway quart jar full for you and your family. All supplies will be provided by the instructors.

~a takeaway sheet with the recipes and herbal medicines discussed in class

~a Q&A session for any additional questions you may have for each instructor

As a way to give back to the community, we are going to make extra bottles of fire cider while so we may give them to families who may not be able to afford expensive cold and flu medicine. We will also be collecting non perishable food items to give to our local food bank.

This retreat style workshop will be available for only a $20 fee. This fee covers the supplies needed to host the event. A pre registration is required by noon Feb 17 th so Lesley will be able to shop for all the supplies needed to make our herbal medicine. This space is limited to the first 40 women who sign up.
