Greetings Plant Lovers,
Hope you are enjoying this warmer weather! Along with it, the migrating birds have returned, singing their beautiful songs. Now we must be a bit more patient for our plant friends to emerge from their slumber. 😊
Tuesday April 30th, 7 – 9 pm will be our next The Ginkgo Tree Herbal Class. We will be meeting here at The Ginkgo Tree, on our family farm. We have a great night planned! As always guests are welcome for a fee of $25.00 (depending on space and pre-registering). Please note: herb course is the last Tuesday of every month.
We will open classes with a ceremonial blessing of our teachers and students. The ritual of smudging can be defined as “spiritual house cleaning.” Thanks to our friend from the Chippewa’s of Georgina, Laurie Hoeg, who will perform the ceremony. We will also have our “Tea of the Month” taught by one of our students and they will provide a sample cup of the tea, so fun to try new teas.
This month’s class (April 30, 2019)
Anxiety & Stress – presenter Penelope Beaudrow
Did you know? ~30% of us will experience symptoms of anxiety during our lives? And gals, its even higher for you!
In fact, anxiety is a very normal response to stressful life events like financial troubles, moving, changing jobs or divorce. However, when these normal symptoms of anxiety become larger than the events that triggered them and begin to interfere with your life, they could be signs of an anxiety disorder.
It was not my intention to discuss anxiety/stress this month, but I can not seem to shake its calling for help. Every time I turn around either someone is asking for themselves or a child with these symptoms/issues. Learning what skills can help you to live anxiety free and the herbs that are your friends and allies.
Come join us, while we learn about anxiety/stress and make an amazing traditional herbal anxiety formula for adults and children. We will be preparing the following:
Anxiety Tincture for Adults ~ Anxiety Tincture for Children
Stress ease Tea Blend
As promised in our last class on detoxing – we will also make a Cilantro Tincture, which helps detox the brain of heavy metals and toxins.
Everyone gets to take home our class concoctions if desired, super fun eh?
Please all students must RSVP, we want to ensure numbers for supplies
Looking forward to seeing you all soon
