Herbs For Stressful Times
Tuesday, July 19, 2016 from 6:00-8:30pm
Stress, especially over the long-term, has widespread impacts on the body, mind and spirit. There are many herbs that can help balance the body's stress response and ease symptoms like tension, insomnia, anxiety and fatigue. From a holistic radical herbalist perspective, this workshop will explore how stress can affect body systems, and how herbs and lifestyle changes can help shift us towards body repair and emotional healing.
Participants will leave with a custom herbal tea they will blend themselves.
