Summer can be a hard time for people. The heat and humidity can be heavy and both the body and mind crave coolness, as well as lightness. There is the need for movement, to push the stagnant air, to let the mind and body feel a bit more space.
This workshop, SUMMER NIGHTS : Herbs for Cooling and Clearing, will explain what happens in the body and our emotions when we are exposed to higher heat. It will include various suggestions on rituals, herbs and tools to aid in cooling our physical bodies and clearing our minds, in this beautiful but challenging time of year.
There will be testers throughout class you will use your senses to explore plant allies, finishing with a short Reiki healing to send you off cool and calm into the summer night.
