“Liz’s foraging workshop was not only informational but downright fun! Left me with a far greater understanding and appreciation for what I had previously been strolling by. It is a true gift to properly identify and forage for wild herbal plants as well as to be able to utilize their medicinal and nutritive properties.”

Fall Cleanse Workshop

Instead of treating the branches, as western allopathic medicine often does, traditional systems treat the roots. This cleanse is based on traditional Ayurvedic cleansing techniques, designed to teach your body to metabolize fat for fuel, cleanse the heavy load of toxins from our modern lifestyles, improve mental clarity, strengthen digestion, and repair the intestinal track. The cleanse functions on all four levels of being; heart, mind, body, and spirit.

 

The Art of Abhyanga

Learn how to create your own herb infused oils specific to your dosha – your psychological and metabolic constitution – and engage in daily abhyanga – a traditional Ayurvedic self-massage.

 

Wild-crafting / Foraging Workshop

Seasonal workshops in the local foothills to identify medicinal and edible local plants and learn how to engage with them as foods and medicines through tincturing, salves, bath herbs, teas, and more.

Seeds of Power, Purification, Poetry, and Devotion

A day of reverence and devotion through the practice of mudra, mantra, poetry, and activism. We will begin by anchoring the space with a communally built altar to the seed. We will dive into devotion to the seed through Tattwa Shuddhi, a Tantric purification practice which includes bija (seed) mantras, and mudra to balance and regenerate the five elements within the individual, increase subtle awareness, and enter into communally created meditative space together. In the second half of our workshop, we will explore the power of seeds through the path of poetry and writing, drawing inspiration from the works of physicist, activist, and eco-feminist, Vandana Shiva and Chilean poet, performance artist, activist, Cecilia Vicuna.
