About the Event
The world is changing rapidly. Between Climate change, ecosystems collapse, and the broken political, economic, and social systems, our nervous systems are put under extreme pressure. Yet, your nervous system holds the key to your health and to being able to engage fully in your life.
Herbal medicine and simple rituals aid enormously in moving through these times of evolutionary transformation with more emotional ease, greater mental clarity, and physical and spiritual peace.
Nourishing herbs like oatstraw (Avena sativa) and nettles (Urtica spp.) help us find our strength. Nervines can help with pain relief, deep sleep, and clear skin. We’ll hone in on the gifts of sedating skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora), uplifting St. John’s/Joan’s wort (Hypericum perforatum), and anxiety-calming motherwort (Leonurus cardiaca), the lion-hearted one.
We’ll also touch on the gifts of violet (Viola spp.) and linden (Tilia spp.).
These herbs can help us to feel and express our grief so we can open to the larger container of our natural joy.
- Learn about skullcap, St. john’s/joan’s wort, and motherwort — their benefits and various ways to prepare them
- Explore the connection between the nervous system and our emotions, as well as the health of our digestive and immune systems
- Engage in a guided meditation and explore the value of everyday rituals for connecting to the earth
