Are you looking to build your knowledge of working with herbs to support winter illness?
Would you like to learn more about not only which herbs to utilize, but about the timing of administering these herbs?
Do you want to build your knowledge base around which herbs to choose for which presentation of symptoms?
If so, we think you'll love this class!
Folks loved the information we shared, and we got quite a few emails asking further questions about working with herbs for winter illnesses...how and when to use some of the remedies we talked about, how to determine timing of dosing which herb when, and especially how to know when to choose one herb over another.
Having access to information and knowing how to apply that information are different skill sets, and with this in mind, we decided to offer a follow-up workshop so that folks can better learn the nuance around working with herbs, tissue states, energetics, and more so that they can support themselves and those around them when winter illness strikes.
We will talk about how to identify tissue state in the respiratory and digestive systems to help us choose which herbs from our kit we should use. We'll briefly discuss supporting the fever response as well.
You will leave this class with a list of remedies that you can utilize to support yourself and your family during common winter illnesses AND an understanding how to actually apply them to real life situations.
How much does this class cost?
This class is $89.
When is class?
Thursday, February 1 at 5:00pm eastern
How long should I plan for class to last?
Class will run for about 2.5 hours, and will be followed by a Q&A session, so plan on spending 3 hours in class. We'll have a 10-15 minute break in the middle of class so that folks can go to the restroom and refill their tea mugs!
What if I can't attend class live?
We'll be recording this class for later viewing, and all course materials will be uploaded to the online classroom (you'll have lifetime access to the online classroom too). If you can't join us live, you can tune in later!
When and where is class?
Class will be held online via Zoom. A link to join will be posted to the online classroom and will also be emailed to you shortly before class begins.
I love the idea of building a winter wellness kit to keep on hand, because our future selves need support! They aren’t going to be able to get it together to make tea and take vitamins when they aren’t feeling well.
Having a box or basket full of lovely, health-supporting herbs and supplements already assembled for yourself and your family will save energy and make preventing illness, supporting symptoms during illness, and recovering more quickly a lot less stressful.
My goal for this class is not simply to teach you which herbs to include in your wellness kit - I also want to teach you the skills you need to know which herbs to choose when (and why).
I hope that you'll join me for class!
