Herbs for Healing
For as old as time, humans have been using healing herbs, different oils and ceremonial rituals to nourish and support the body and mind. The role of plants as healers, we bring you a practical and interactive workshop where you will learn simple recipes and remedial techniques using herbs that support your wellness journey.
The morning will start with a cleansing yoga flow – moving with breath through fluid sequences – preparing the body for mindful awareness, for meditation, for rest and healing. Detoxifying the body with breathing techniques pranayama and aromatherapy.
Following our yoga practice, Deborah will lead us through a guided healing meditation supported with crystal energy and reiki before we sit down to enjoy a plant based lunch over our workshop discussion.
This interactive workshop will be divided into three sections:
Food / Body & Ritual / Home & Garden
We will eat an abundant lunch menu made with different herbs and ingredients to support common conditions we may experience. Melanie will introduce foods that help with inflammation in the body, with detoxification, hormonal balance and immune boosting properties. We will look at different herbs used in tea making and their medicinal value. You will have the opportunity to design your own herbal tea blend to take home.
Discover herbal additions you can bring to your routine through rituals for the body, mind and spirituality. Deborah will show you how herbs can also be used when bathing, sleeping, meditating and going about our daily routines.
And finally, herbs for home and garden. How to make toxic free cleaning sprays, support your home and your space. Growing herbs is a beautiful way to feel connected to Mother Earth, be more sustainable and eat earth to table. Learn which herbs suit which seasons and how can you nourish plants for optimal health.
Included in this workshop is a take home guide on all of the discussion points that were covered during the day.
